DC Universe's 'Swamp Thing' Revealed!
Usually when you hear DC Comics, superheroes come to mind. All of that is going to change May 31st with Swamp Thing, exclusively on DC Universe. With the release of the new trailer, you can definitely see that Swamp Thing isn't your typical comic book character.
James Wan is producing the 10 episode series and he's backed by an all-star cast. Crystal Reed(Abby Holland), Andy Bean(Alec Holland), Ian Ziering(Blue Devil),Kevin Durand(Floronic Man) and Derek Mears(Swamp Thing) are all listed on the cast and crew on IMDB. We know Mears can become an absolute beast from his role as Jason Voorhees from the 2009 Friday The 13th, so I can't wait to see his on-screen portrayal of the green guardian.
The Trailer opens with an ominous look over the swamp with a group of people in a boat. Tentacle-like vines run throughout the murky water and attack the group. We get glimpses of all sorts of things; Floronic Man, the mask of Blue Devil, someone wearing a pig head and Alec Holland's transformation into the protector of the green. All in all, it most definitely has horror elements.
The series summary on DC Universe says "Swamp Thing follows Abby Arcane as she investigates what seems to be a deadly swamp-born virus in a small town in Louisiana but soon discovers that the swamp holds mystical and terrifying secrets. When unexplainable and chilling horrors emerge from the murky marsh, no one is safe."
