I am curious to see which version of the Doom Patrol they use. Probably the original one but with Berlanti you never know.
The press release spells out the team specifically:
The Chief (Bruno Bichir)
Elasti-Girl (April Bowlby)
Robotman (Jake Michaels)
Negative Man (Dwain Murphy)
Crazy Jane (role not yet cast)

It's not clear at this point if Cyborg (role not yet cast) will be an official part of the team, but I wouldn't be surprised either way.

I'm surprised that Disney let them use Elasti-Girl (or Warner Bros. let Disney use Elastigirl originally), given The Incredibles is finally relevant again after so long.

DC's Elasti-Girl was around for decades before The Incredibles. There's a reason why merchandise always referred to her as Mrs Incredible. They couldn't use the name outside of the movie because of the Doom Patrol character,

As was already said, DC has priority ownership over the name Elasti-Girl, and, besides, her powers are totally different from Helen Parr's and don't actually have anything to do with her codename.

That isn't how copyright works. You can not copyright a name you trademark it. There is nothing stopping Marvel comics from creating a character named Superman.

What would be the concept that can be copyrighted. Elasti-girl is just a character that shrinks and grows which isn't the same concept for Elastigirl from the Incredibles. So there is no copyright issue here.

...anyways, casting side for Cyborg has reportedly gone out.

Male, mid-20s, African-American. Charming, sarcastic, a bit brash, Cyborg is half-human, half-machine * the ultimate Super Hero for the digital age. At least, thatís how it appears. Vic Stone lost his mother at a young age, lost his promising future to a horrific accident and was put back together as a man-machine hybrid by a brilliant and aloof father who sees him as little more than a lab rat. While Vic may be connected to every computer on earth, he struggles to maintain the connections that make us human. Desperate to gain acceptance from the outside world and his father, Vic uses his powers to try and harness the curse of his cybernetic body for good.

ASP SERIES REGULAR. May segue into Series regular on TITANS in subsequent seasons.

If they're out and about casting for a different actor then Ray Fisher, to me that seems to lean more towards the idea that Titans and Doom Patrol are NOT directly connected in any way to the existing DC Cinematic Universe.

Great, one more thing I like is to be marred with crappily done live-action.

DC is trying so hard to make Cyborg happen! I wish they put this much focus into like Vixen. Not sure why they couldn't just have him in Titans and have Beast Boy start out in Doom Patrol.

Im so happy for Joivan. Been following his career since his mandem on the wall youtube show(which actually lead to him developing a media company network). Due to the nature of the show being a comedy, i always questioned how he would be in more serious roles. But to see him go from that, to a small part of doctor who, to the first purge and now this is great to see. The beauty of acting is how easy one can be deceived on a persons palette of personas

Another product of the BRIT school and i hope this leads to many more roles for him.

That actually sounds pretty cool though I'm still worried they're going to make him a crackhead or something.

And of course, the comments on that article didn't even read the whole article. They are thinking that Fraser is Robotman physically. The article specifically states that he's doing voice-work for Robotman, and will only be physically there for flashback scenes (which I highly doubt will be done that often).

Maybe the flashback scenes could relate to Beast Boy's storyline in Titans for a potential cameo?
