Teaser Trailer For DC's SWAMP THING Gives Us Our First Look at The Creature
Following the news that production on DC Universe’s Swamp Thing had been shut down and that the 13-episode series would be cut down to 10-episodes, a teaser trailer was released. I imagine the reason for the trailer is to spark some excitement and confidence among the fans.
The teaser offers us our first look at the creature and as you can see, it’s very much in line with the comic book design. I like it! It’s a very cool look and it’ll be great to see him in action!
I just hope that the rewrites that are being done for the ending don’t completely ruin the story that the creative team originally set out to tell. This is the one DC series that I was actually super stoked about watching!
Check out the teaser trailer below and let us know what you think about Swamp Thing’s look.
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 will be 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.
