DC's SWAMP THING Series Gets a Romantic New Promo Spot - Swamp Thing Water Embrace
“Sometimes the man of your dreams turns out to be a monster.”
DC Universe has released a new promo spot for their highly anticipated new series Swamp Thing. This one puts the focus on the romantic aspect of the story involving Abby Arcane (Crystal Reed) and Alec Holland (Andy Bean). This romance will be a major story element of the series that will be explored.
I love what I’ve seen from this series so far, especially the visual imagery like we are seeing in this new promo spot.
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 new trailer below.
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 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).
