Spinning out of the DC Universe streaming service's flagship series Titans is Doom Patrol, which will feature a team of super-powered misfits whose strange abilities caused them to become social outcasts. However, while little is known about the plot of the upcoming show, we may now know who the team's primary antagonist will be: Eric Morden, aka Mr. Nobody.

According to That Hashtag Show, the studio has put out a call for a big-name actor in the age range of 30-50 to play the role of Mr. Nobody, who "will be seeking vengeance on the person he holds responsible for the failed experiment that caused his condition which, in addition to his insanity, has left him stuck between two dimensions."

Created by Arnold Drake and Bruno Premiani, Mr. Nobody made his DC Comics debut in the pages of Doom Patrol #86 in 1964. He's essentially a living shadow with a heart-shaped hole in his chest, and he possesses the ability to drain the sanity from other beings.

DC Universe, Warner Bros.’ new subscription streaming service, will launch this fall with the live-action Titans, as well as a lineup of classic DC films and TV series, a curated comics library, and exclusive merchandise. The show will be joined in 2019 by the animated Young Justice: Outsiders and Harley Quinn, with the live-action Swamp Thing and Doom Patrol also in development.
