Doom Patrol has found its Negative Man in Golden Globe-winner Matt Bomer. He joins in a series regular capacity, providing the voice for the character in the present-day timeline and also appearing as the superhero's alter ego Larry Trainor in flashbacks. 

Matthew Zuk (Avengers: Infinity War) will provide Negative Man's physical appearance and is the actor that was seen earlier this year in set photos.

He's the latest to join an impressive ensemble that is headlined by Brendan Fraser (The Mummy) as Cliff Steele/Robotman and also features Timothy Dalton (License to Kill) as Niles Caulder/The Chief, Joivan Wade (The First Purge) as Victor Stone/Cyborg, April Bowlby (Two and a Half Men) as 
Elasti-Woman, Diane Guerrero (Orange is the New Black) as Crazy Jane, and Alan Tudyk (Rogue One: A Star Wars Story) as Mr. Nobody. 

Titans premieres on October 12 while Doom Patrol has been slated to premiere in 2019 with a 13-episode freshman run. 

Bomer is best known for portraying the ever-elusive Neal Caffrey on the hit USA series White Collar. His past credits also include, but are not limited to, Tru Calling, Chuck, In Time, Magic Mike, Superman: Unbound, Winter's Tale, The Normal HeartMagic Mike XXL, American Horror Story, The Nice Guys, The Magnificent Seven, and The Last Tycoon.

Noooo! I guess hes out of the running for replacing Henry Cavill.

Welp, I guess my runner up Josh McKenzie better start hitting the gym and getting swoll.

He's like a perfect mix of Henry Cavill and Tom Welling.

What a waste. Haven't seen him much lately though, so I guess a paycheck's a paycheck
mistral1 - 10/3/2018, 6:23 PM
Amazing cast indeed, looking forward for the show.
ALegendaryPanda - 10/3/2018, 6:30 PM
Lol why are people talking about him replacing Superman as if that's a done deal?

Anyway I'm sure he'll be good in this, I love this cast so far!
ArthurFleck - 10/3/2018, 7:09 PM
@ALegendaryPanda - absolutely nobody here has said anything remotely akin to him as Superman being a done deal. But it's no secret that there is a vocal section of the fan community who have been very hopeful that they might one day see Boomer don the S and cape. That's all.
Himura - 10/3/2018, 9:21 PM
@ArthurFleck - Yeah and theres still a lot of people who want Idris Elba as Green Lantern, Bryan Cranston as Lex, and Jon Hamm as Batman. Doesnt mean any of those will happen.
ALegendaryPanda - 10/3/2018, 9:23 PM
@ArthurFleck - Okay but all I'm asking is why are we even talking about that when Henry Cavill has never officially left the role?

I just don't understand how you can be disappointed in something that was never going to happen anyway
ArthurFleck - 10/3/2018, 9:37 PM
@Himura - you are correct. I'm dont disagree. Why is your statement in response to mine? Nobody said it was going to happen.

ArthurFleck - 10/3/2018, 9:45 PM
@ALegendaryPanda - well 1) you it was impossible to say it was never going to happen anyway. Nobody can predict that. I could have, it just didnt.

2) its pretty simple man. A huge chunk of the fan community loved the idea, pushed for the idea and think its perfect casting. Regardless of Cavill has left yet or will leave, that does mean fans cant love the prospect of Matt one day putting on the tights.

Its pretty simple and easy to understand. And believe me bro, I get your points and you aren't wrong. But to say you cant understand where we are coming from... its pretty simple. You may not see things the way we do which is fine, but that's what it is. We know the deal, it may not be entirely rational but what in fandom these days is 100% rational? Lol

Its simple, we wanted it. Him being cast as a DC character on a TV show increases the odds further that he likely will never be cast as Superman, so like silly nerds we got disappointed. That's the best way I can explain it.

@ArthurFleck - I don't think it does anything to his chances of playing Superman one day, by the time WB gets around to making another Superman movie, this series might be over. Lol
ArthurFleck - 10/3/2018, 10:35 PM
@ALegendaryPanda - I hope you're right.

Would’ve made a nice younger Bruce Wayne.
THEDARKKNIGHT1939 - 10/3/2018, 6:51 PM
He'll always be Neal Caffrey to me.
NinnesMBC - 10/3/2018, 6:52 PM
Good casting, looking forward to his take on Negative Man.
NinnesMBC - 10/3/2018, 6:53 PM
Off-topic but it appears that Titans, after premiering the first 3 or just the 1st episode IDK, has been greenlit for S2.

BIGBMH - 10/3/2018, 6:54 PM
Bomer, you're supposed to be Superman!
NinnesMBC - 10/3/2018, 6:55 PM
Hmm, not sure if this is true. Seems too rushed.
Menks123 - 10/3/2018, 7:01 PM
Idk about this show. Sounds like it has potential, but disappointing that this is the role he takes in the CBM world.

Hopefully he owns the role though!
cocaegelo - 10/3/2018, 7:05 PM
So, Superman will be Negative Man.
sparkadv - 10/3/2018, 7:28 PM
Waste of casting! He has the looks, the talent and the “voice” to be the new Superman but they cast him as Negative man! A character that never shows his face. 🤦🏻‍♂️
L0RDbuckethead - 10/3/2018, 7:38 PM
I, too, would like him as Superman... Seems everyone feels the same haha
Nightmare - 10/3/2018, 8:35 PM
@L0RDbuckethead -
L0RDbuckethead - 10/3/2018, 8:47 PM
@Nightmare - I love him too. I hope we haven't seen the last of Cavill as Supes

Doomsday8888 - 10/3/2018, 8:07 PM
Holy shit!!!
Helluva cast, yo!

I feel you guys tho. :3
Santanaonfire - 10/3/2018, 8:24 PM
I’m confused... he’s doing a voice. Is this live action? Because he is very attractive and I wanted to look at him. 😍
Himura - 10/3/2018, 9:23 PM
@Santanaonfire - Well if you read the article....
