DC Universe certainly isn't slowing down. The first season of Titans has just concluded and the streaming service already wants fans to look forward to Doom Patrol, which just got its first hilarious trailer and a February air date.

The trailer opens with the Doom Patrol preparing to have their photo taken. However, Crazy Jane clearly isn't into the idea. "Photos suuuuck!" she says in a voiceover while Elasti-Woman is determined to keep the best posture. Cyborg knows his angles while Negative Man wonders if they should be smiling (not that it matters, in his case). Not surprisingly, Robotman has the best line in the teaser. "Am I the only one who always ends up with the red eye?" he asks the photographer, making Negative Man shake his head.

It's a hilarious introduction to the gang, which includes a new version of Cyborg. The character has already appeared in films and animated shows but this is the first time Victor Stone will be featured in a live-action series.

The synopsis for Doom Patrol reads as follows:

"A re-imagining of one of DC's most beloved group of outcast Super Heroes: Robotman, Negative Man, Elasti-Woman and Crazy Jane, led by modern-day mad scientist Dr. Niles Caulder (The Chief). The Doom Patrol's members each suffered horrible accidents that gave them superhuman abilities — but also left them scarred and disfigured. Traumatized and downtrodden, the team found purpose through The Chief, who brought them together to investigate the weirdest phenomena in existence — and to protect Earth from what they find.

"Part support group, part Super Hero team, the Doom Patrol is a band of super-powered freaks who fight for a world that wants nothing to do with them. Picking up after the events of Titans, Doom Patrol will find these reluctant heroes in a place they never expected to be, called to action by none other than Cyborg, who comes to them with a mission hard to refuse, but with a warning that is hard to ignore: their lives will never, ever be the same."

Doom Patrol will premiere on DC Universe on February 15, 2019.
