Michelle Gomez joins Doom Patrol Season 3

March 12th, 2021 by Marc Comments

Oh, yes! Looks like Doom Patrol season 3 has added one of our favourite actresses in a fairly major role.

Yes, the wonderful Michelle Gomez will play Madame Rouge on the upcoming third year of the show on HBO Max.

Gomez is the star of shows such as Green Wing and for playing Missy in recent Doctor Who series and she will find herself as Madame Rouge appearing as “a complicated and electrifying eccentric who arrives at Doom Manor with a very specific mission, if only she could remember it.”

In the comics Madame Rouge was a French actress who was in a car crash and found herself with a good and an evil personality afterwards, becoming a master of disguise who eventually becomes a villain with the ability ala Clayface to take on other peoples’ appearances… she became one of the Doom Patrol’s enemy figures.

The shows third season will see returning stars Brendan Fraser as Cliff Steele, Matt Bomer as Larry Trainor aka Negative Man, Timothy Dalton as Niles Caulder aka the Chief, Diane Guerrero as Jane aka Crazy Jane, April Bowlby as Rita Farr aka Elasti-Woman and Joivan Wade as Victor Stone aka Cyborg.

Still no confirmed release date for the show’s return, but we’ll all be waiting with baited breath.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
