DC’s Swamp Thing Revealed In Spooky Trailer For New Show

Swamp Thing has been a favorite of DC fans for many years, but most viewers would probably agree that neither of his previous two on-screen adaptations captured the spooky, horror edge that made his comic books so popular in the ’70s and early ’80s. Hopefully that will all change next month when the new Swamp Thing show launches on DC Universe. The first teaser has now been released.

The video doesn’t reveal much actual footage from the show, but it’s still highly effective. The camera tracks slowly across the waters of a spooky swamp, before stopping to show us Swamp Thing emerging from its depths. The creature’s make-up looks fantastic and the teaser certainly suggests that the show will be going in a horror-based direction. Check it out above.

Swamp Thing stars Andy Bean (Agents of SHIELD, the upcoming It: Chapter 2) as Dr Alec Holland, the biologist who transforms into the elemental monster after working in the Louisiana swamp. Derek Mears, who is best known for portraying the iconic killer Jason Vorhees in the 2009 reboot of Friday the 13th, plays the creature. The cast also includes Virginia Madsen (Candyman), Jennifer Beals (Flashdance), and WiIl Patton (Halloween). It hits DC Universe on May 31.

The first season of Swamp Thing was originally intended to be 13 episodes. However, it was reported this week that production was abruptly halted and the season will now run for 10 episodes. According to The Hollywood Reporter, “creative differences” have led to the shortened season, but DC and Warner have not commented on the issue.

Nevertheless, there are plenty of other shows in the works for DC Universe. The DC Universe panel at Wondercon last month gave fans a first look at Courtney Whitmore in Stargirl, which will premiere in early 2020. In addition, it was recently reported that Game of Thrones star Iain Glen has been cast as Bruce Wayne in the second season of Titans, which is scheduled for a Fall 2019 release.

Hey everyone, I'm Jonathan but people will know me as Jon... I enjoy hiking and exploring the outside world as well as getting to see fantastic views. It can bring you to the most beautiful places on earth and into contact with amazing plants and wildlife and can be done all year round which is why I enjoy it so much despite it being challenging sometimes due to the weather - it has allowed me to meet a lot of new people and experience things I wouldn't have before. I also find it relaxing and interesting. I also really enjoy blogging and sharing my experiences with similar people. Hopefully you will read mine. My company Adventures Gate displays my other hobby - gaming! I love collecting items to do with gaming and playing in general. I guess I am a bit of a geek when it comes to this. Adventures Gate now offer free postage options when you spend more than £20 (there may be a small additional charge for larger items). That`s free 1st class post in the UK and free airmail to Europe.
