More Doom Patrol members are heading to Titans! Den of Geek broke the news today that Dwain Murphy (Star Trek: Discovery, The Strain, Degrassi: The Next Generation) has been tapped for the role of Larry Trainor a.k.a Negative Man who will make his first appearance in the fifth episode titled “The Doom Patrol.”
Geoff Johns wrote the episode, directed by Orphan Black’s John Fawcett. Warner Bros. TV and DC Entertainment describe the Titans version of Negative Man as follows:
