Marvel Movie Composer Brian Tyler to Compose The Score For DC's SWAMP THING
It looks like DC is pulling out all the stops for Swamp Thing. The DC Universe show has brought Brian Tyler on to compose the score. Tyler’s credits include Crazy Rich Asians, Avengers: Age of Ultron, Iron Man 3, and Fast & Furious to name a few. I actually quite enjoyed the score for Age of Ultron, so my interest is piqued.
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, Leonardo Nam (Westworld) as Harlan Edwards, and Ian Ziering (Sharknado) as David Cassidy, a.k.a. Blue Devil. RJ Cyler and Leonardo Nam have also joined the cast.
Swamp Thing is set to launch on DC Universe later this year.
