In a genius stroke of marketing mayhem (because it’s the dead week for news, ya see?), DC Universe and FOX have pushed out new promos for “Doom Patrol” and “Gotham”, respectively – the latter of which is entering its final season.
The quick teaser for superhero series “Doom Patrol” introduces us to the main bunch, including Brendan Fraser’s Robot Man.
“Doom Patrol” is a re-imagining of one of DC’s most beloved groups 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.
The promo for the series finale of Batman prequel series “Gotham”, , features Gotham crumbling to its feet, with villains taking full advantage of the temporarily hindered-law enforcement. Harley Quinn makes her first appearance in the sneak.
Beginning in this January, “Gotham” will air its fifth and final season, wrapping up this beloved series in a farewell event that will focus on Bruce Wayne’s (David Mazouz) transformation into the caped crusader. The series stars Ben McKenzie as Detective James Gordon; Donal Logue as Detective Harvey Bullock; Sean Pertwee as Alfred Pennyworth; Robin Lord Taylor as Oswald Cobblepot/The Penguin; Erin Richards as Barbara Kean; David Mazouz as Bruce Wayne; Camren Bicondova as Selina Kyle/the future Catwoman; Cory Michael Smith as Edward Nygma/The Riddler; Chris Chalk as Lucius Fox; Morena Baccarin as Lee Thompkins; Jessica Lucas as Tabitha Galavan; Cameron Monaghan as Jerome/Jeremiah Valeska; David W. Thompson as Jonathan Crane/The Scarecrow; and Shane West as Eduardo Dorrance/Bane.
James Wan, Mark Millar team for Netflix fantasy series
“The Magic Order” tells of five families of magicians sworn to protect our world
James Wan has joined the producing committee over on “The Magic Order”, a new Netflix series based on an original story by Mark Millar.
The “Aquaman” director will also direct the pilot for the series, which Lindsay Beer will server as writer/showrunner on.
Here’s the logline : Five families of magicians sworn to protect our world must battle an enemy who’s picking them off one by one. By day they live among us as our neighbors, friends and co-workers, but by night they are the sorcerers, magicians and wizards that protect us from the forces of darkness – unless the darkness gets them first.

Who’s playing Doctor Manhattan in Watchmen!?
Dr. Jonathan Osterman hails from the big wet, it would seem!
Our friends at Geek Vibes Nation have the word on the ‘who is Yayha Abdul-Mateen II playing in Watchmen?’ question that’s been floated in the forums for a while.
According to the site, the HBO series has the “Aquaman” star playing none other than Dr. Manhattan!
For the unversed, Dr. Jonathan Osterman aka Doctor Manhattan is a nuclear physicist who in 1959 acquired superpowers after surviving being disintegrated in an Intrinsic Field Subtractor and reconstructing himself. Following his reanimation, he was immediately pressed into service by the United States government, who gave him the name Doctor Manhattan, after the Manhattan Project.
Billy Crudup played the part in Zack Snyder’s 2009 feature film version.
Interestingly enough, Abdul-Mateen’s character has been listed as ‘Cal Abraham’ thus far, suggesting he might be donning a fake name when we first meet him in the series.
Regina King, Jeremy Irons, Tim Blake Nelson, Don Johnson and Louis Gossett Jr are also part of the series, set to premiere in the fall.
