Yesterday morning saw the release of the first look at the upcoming DC’s Doom Patrol TV series for the DC Universe network. That also included the first look at the show’s Cyborg along with a brief teaser trailer of him in the film. And fans seem extremely divided on this.
While many fans are noting that it’s certainly not the worst depiction of Cyborg, portrayed in Doom Patrol by actor Jovian Wade, there have been many live-action Cyborgs until now, if you can believe it. However, this version still looks a little rough around the edges… and the middle… and the rest of it. While many responses on social media have been very harsh, others are optimistic.
Check out some of the best responses in the following slide!
Here are the reactions:
"We want Cyborg on the show … But we don't want to spend a lot of money."
"Got it. How's this?" https://t.co/lA79gh2pvW

Here’s the synopsis of the series:
“A re-imagining of one of DC’s most beloved group of outcast Super Heroes: Robotman, Negative Man, Elasti-Girl 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.”
