PICTURED: Joivan Wade

WARNER BROS. Television have announced that British actor Joivan Wade will be joining the Doom Patrol TV series cast in the role as Cyborg, the half-human, half-machine former football star who has quickly grown to become one of the most recognisable and beloved heroes in the DC Universe.

According to DC Comics, Doom Patrol’s take on the classic character seems to be right in line with what fans of the comics will be expecting.

Described as charming and sarcastic, Vic may be connected to every computer on the world, but he struggles to maintain the connections that make him human. Desperate to gain acceptance from the outside world, Vic harnesses the curse of his cybernetic body and uses his powers as the ultimate hero for the digital age.

Wade has worked consistently in British TV, notably with a multi-episode role on the popular soap EastEnders and a memorable appearance on Doctor Who. However, his most prominent recent appearance was in this summer’s The First Purge. His casting as Cyborg on Doom Patrol gives him his very first superhero role.

He joins previously announced cast members Diane Guerrero, who will play Crazy Jane, and April Bowlby, who will play Elasti-Woman.
