GAMES PEOPLE PLAY Star Karen Obilom Joins DOOM PATROL Season 2

Season one of DOOM PATROL on the DC Universe took the world by storm. With interesting characters, adult humor and so much more, when the season ended people have been chomping at the bit for the second season. This is especially since TITANS has already aired its 2nd season and currently filming its third.

Now there is some exciting casting news coming out about the team of doomed souls (Abigail Shapiro will play Dorothy Spinner) and this announcement has a major connection to one of the not so likely heroes.

Karen Obilom (GAMES PEOPLE PLAY)  has landed a recurring role as Roni Evers according to DEADLINE.  Evers is reportedly “a military veteran with a mysterious past who Vic Stone/Cyborg (Wade) meets while attending a PTSD support group.”

It seems that the two characters may start off bonding over their traumatic experiences, and it will eventually go wrong. Obilom appears to be playing a gender-bent version of Ronald Evers, a character that eventually becomes one of Cyborg’s foes and a cyborg himself.

DOOM PATROL season 2 does not currently have a premiere date, but Diane Guerrero, Brendan Frasier, Jovian Wade, Timothy Dalton, April Bowlby, and Matt Bomer have been confirmed to return.

Doom Patrol Now Has Its Cyborg In Joivan Wade

We now know who will play the critical role of Cyborg in the DC Universes, Doom Patrol. Joivan Wade (The First Purge) will be portraying Victor Stone a.k.a Cyborg who brings together the unlikely group of heroes.

The breakdown for Wade’s Cyborg is “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.” This is pretty much canon when it comes to the character of Cyborg in the comics and even briefly is the Justice League film.

There is not much about the overall synopsis of the show’s first season on DC’s new streaming service. But what we do have a brief one into Cyborg.  Cyborg will have an integral role to play throughout the series as he recruits the five reluctant, borderline outcast, heroes and offers them a mission that will prove to be hard to refuse and that promises to take them to the weirdest and most unexpected corners of the DC universe, although it will also come with a warning that the fivesome would be foolish to ignore.

We are getting more and more information about the upcoming Justice League movie and one of its main characters.

Director Zack Snyder recently confirmed that the third Mother Box will be featured in Justice League, and that it will be none other than Victor Stone, a.k.a. Cyborg. There have been plenty of rumors swirling round the Mother Boxes and how they fit into the story, especially after the Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice deleted scene that featured Lex Luthor (Jesse Eisenberg) using Kryptonian technology to create a vision of the villain Steppenwolf holding three Mother Boxes. Director Zack Snyder also offered more details about bringing this team together in Justice League.

Zack Snyder confirmed that Cyborg is the third mother box in the print issue of Total Film, but this isn’t the first time he’s mentioned that particular detail. The filmmaker revealed in a March interview that the Cyborg scene in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, where Victor Stone’s father Silas (Joe Morton) presents his son with a strange box that turns him into Cyborg, is the “first glimpse of the Mother Box there,” adding that Ray Fisher’s character, “plays such a strong part coming up.”

Another rumor from May revealed that Justice League will open with a flashback scene from 30,000 years ago, featuring Darkseid’s first defeat when the humans, Atlanteans and the Amazons all came together to beat him. These three civilizations are believed to have divided up an artifact into three parts, the Mother Boxes, which Steppenwolf is presumably coming for in Justice League. It has also been rumored that Steppenwolf will be the main Justice League villain, with Darkseid appearing at the end of the movie, leading into the currently untitled Justice League 2 sequel. While Zack Snyder wouldn’t speak more about the Mother Boxes, he did discuss how bringing this team of DC heroes together was one of the most rewarding aspects of the film.

“One of the more rewarding aspects of creating Justice League was having fun exploring the dynamic between this diverse group of characters, inherently larger-than-life characters with disparate backgrounds, ethics and unique perspectives all trying to come together and work as a team. It not only offers an opportunity for great drama and complex relationships, but it also often results in great fun. It’s an exciting concept to explore and it only gets better when you add the component of our incredibly talented cast, their chemistry really adds to that dynamic.”

It’s possible that one of the other Mother Boxes will be revealed in the upcoming Wonder Woman movie, which hits theaters June 2, just five months before Justice League arrives November 17. It’s also possible that the remaining Mother Box will be featured in the stand alone Aquaman movie, which debuts October 5, 2018, before the Justice League sequel will hit theaters on June 14, 2019. Hopefully we’ll find out more about these Mother Boxes as we get ready for Wonder Woman and Justice League to hit theaters this year.
