Entertainment Weekly is reporting that Mark Sheppard is all-set to guest star on next week's Doom Patrol as Willoughby Kipling, a chaos magician and friend of Dr. Niles Caulder (Timothy Dalton) who likes drinking almost as much as he likes saving the world from apocalyptic death cults.

The episode will see our misfit heroes partner with Kipling to take down a dangerous cult and we get a first look at some of that action in the new promo for "Cult Patrol."

DOOM PATROL reimagines one of DC’s most beloved groups of Super Heroes: Robotman aka Cliff Steele (BRENDAN FRASER), Negative Man aka Larry Trainor (MATT BOMER), Elasti-Woman aka Rita Farr (APRIL BOWLBY) and Crazy Jane (DIANE GUERRERO), led by modern-day mad scientist Niles Caulder aka The Chief (TIMOTHY DALTON). Each member of the Doom Patrol suffered a horrible accident that gave them superhuman abilities, but also left them scarred and disfigured. Traumatized and downtrodden, the team found their purpose through The Chief, coming together to investigate the weirdest phenomena in existence. Following the mysterious disappearance of The Chief these reluctant heroes will find themselves in a place they never expected to be, called to action by none other than Cyborg (JOIVAN WADE), who comes to them with a mission hard to refuse. Part support group, part Super Hero team, the Doom Patrol is a band of superpowered freaks who fight for a world that wants nothing to do with them.

Doom Patrol features:
Timothy Dalton as Niles Caulder/The Chief
Brendan Fraser as Cliff Steele/Robotman
Matt Bomer as Larry Trainor/Negative Man
April Bowlby as Rita Farr/
Joivan Wade as Victor Stone/Cyborg
Diane Guerrero as Kay Challis/Crazy Jane
Phil Morris as Silas Stone
Alan Tudyk as Eric Morden/Mr. Nobody

Doom Patrol returns with a brand new episode on March 8

A good, solid episode but I thought it was the weakest of the three so far. Very wacky, but not too much going on until the last quarter of the episode. Thought it started out really good but slowed down a lot during the middle. A lot of talking and less stuff going on. I think some of the reasons I didn't care for this episode as much were 1) less going on so a lot of talking, 2) no Nobody (his absence was pretty noticeable to me), 3) less Cyborg. But as I said, good episode; just wish the first 3/4 of it were as strong as the last 1/4...

Regardless of that, the fight scenes in Fuktopia with Robotman and Crazy Jane were both freaking bloody awesome and probably the two best fight scenes of the season so far. Awesome, insane stuff.

Was also nice to get some backstory to Larry, just seems like they are taking a while to get him anywhere. Wish they would develop Rita some.

@HeavyMetal4Life -

I felt the opposite. It was a very revealing episode. I think a lot was going on in the episode and the dialogue was essential to fleshing out the characters further.

1. We learned Niles shot the Nazi and possibly interrupted the procedure Mordern was undergoing thus creating an unfinished Mister Nobody (also he took something of value).

2. We learned that "Jane" may not be the dominant personality for Crazy Jame but rather another one of the persona meaning we may have never met the actual true "Jane"!! 🤯

3. Negative Man's backstory was further detailed, we learned of his highly dangerous radioactive state after the crash and how the bonding between him and the Negative being destroyed his already fragile life.

4. We got to see a confrontation between Larry and the Negative being.

5. We saw how Cyborg's encounter with Nobody has left him doubtful of the origin story his father told him.

6. Robotman found a file on his daughter AND her number which Niles already had! 😳

7. Animal-Vegetable-Mineral Man!

8. We also were introduced to other personalities like the teleporting Flit.

9. Doom Patrol's first BIG fight scene and it was awesome.

10. Did I mention Animal-Vegetable-Mineral Man?

It seems you're very interested in action, and that's fine, but every episode shouldn't be about punching things. That's actually going to devalue the show. They need to continue to flesh out and develop the characters as well as explore their backstories. We didn't need fighting from start to finish. This isn't going to be Daredevil or the Punisher.

Also I hope to god they don't overuse Mister Nobody. He's not someone we need to see every week or he could easily become stale.

@Humperdink - "It seems you're very interested in action"

I can tell you haven't seen any of my previous comments on this season, such as why I like Robotman and Cyborg so much. That's alright, no worries.

@HeavyMetal4Life -

I also REALLY loved that after destroying those Nazi's Robotman saw a side of himself he didn't expect and it scared him.

In the plane he held his daughters number in his covered in blood...and the silent realization that he may be too "monstrous" to even be around her and so he destroyed it.

That was touching and brilliantly handled.

@HeavyMetal4Life -

I was only going by THIS comment. Which seems to indicate that you were unhappy until the action took place.

Again, there was a LOT going on in this episode, which I tried to lay out in my post. Even if you didn't really get into it you can't say nothing was happening.

I mean...Larry got to MEET the Negative being. He could never do that before.

I loved it.

@Humperdink - yup, that Robotman stuff was very good. He continues to be the highlight of the show.
Krav - 3/2/2019, 8:18 AM
he would make a great Constantine
DalekCraigWasson - 3/2/2019, 8:53 AM
@Krav - Not seen the show yet, but in the comics, Kipling was created because Vertigo wouldn't let them use Constantine.

I really want to see this show!

How does it compare to titans? I wanted to see that show as well but still can’t get over their looks and that tone...”[frick] Batman”
Lemons - 3/2/2019, 11:31 AM
@TheRadioDemon - It's completely different compared to Titans. It's fun, it's nutty, and it's full of intriguing characters. Seriously, give it a watch.
IronGenesis - 3/2/2019, 11:26 AM
❤️❤️ Matthew Bomer ❤️❤️
and his portrayal of Larry.

This show has become my favorite.
