DC Universe Releases an Intense New Trailer for SWAMP THING
A lot of fans seem to be very excited about the James Wan-produced Swamp Thing series coming to the DC Universe streaming service. This is the one DC series that I’m actually really excited about because I love Swamp Thing!
Well, today we have a new trailer to share with you that gives us our best look at at the series yet, and I love what I’m seeing! The trailer is filled with intensity and also has some great horror filled moments. This series looks like it could be great! It’s a shame that the first season is going to be cut down from 13 episodes to 10.
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.
Swamp Thing is set to premiere on May 31st. Watch the trailer below and let us know if it gets you more pumped up about watching this series.
Swamp Thing will follow "CDC researcher Abby Arcane, who returns to her childhood home of Houma, Louisiana, in order to investigate a deadly swamp-borne virus. She develops a surprising bond with scientist Alec Holland, only to have him tragically taken from her. But as powerful forces descend on Houma, intent on exploiting the swamp’s mysterious properties for their own purposes, Abby will discover that the swamp holds mystical secrets, and the potential love of her life may not be dead after all."
The series stars Will Patton (We Are The Titans, Halloween) as Avery Sunderland alongside Virginia Madsen (Sideways), who is playing his wife Maria Sunderland. The series also stars Andy Bean as Alec Holland, Derek Mears as Swamp Thing, Crystal Reed (Gotham) as Abby, Maria Sten (Straight Outta Compton, Channel Zero) as her friend Liz Tremayne, Kevin Durand (Lost, The Strain, X-Men Origins: Wolverine) as the villain Jason Woodrue, a.k.a. The Floronic Man, and Ian Ziering (Sharknado) as David Cassidy, a.k.a. Blue Devil.
James Wan is producing Swamp Thing for DC Universe under his Atomic Monster banner. The series is being directed by Len Wiseman, written by Mark Verheiden (Daredevil, Battlestar Galactica) and Gary Dauberman (It).
The series is scheduled for release in 2019 on DC Universe.
