The first full trailer for the upcoming series arrives with a strong horror vibe.
By Chris Morse
Coming to the DC Universe streaming service on May 31st is a James Wan-produced Swamp Thing televisions series and this show undeniably looks more horror than hero. The official trailer was released earlier today and it paints quite a clear picture of what kind of style the new series is going for, which is something a little darker than past incarnations, to say the least.
Based on the DC characters originally written and drawn by Len Wein and Bernie Wrightson, Swamp Thing will follow Abby Arcane as she investigates some kind of swamp-born virus in a small Louisiana town. She soon discovers that the swamp holds mystical and terrifying secrets that soon prove no one is safe as unexplainable and chilling horrors emerge from the marsh.
Starring in the series is Andy Bean (It: Chapter Two) as Alec Holland, the scientist who transforms into the titular monster, Derek Mears (Jason Voorhees in 2009's Friday the 13th) as Swamp Thing himself, and Crystal Reed (Teen Wolf) as CDC researcher Abby Arcane. The cast also includes Ian Ziering as Daniel Cassidy, Jennifer Beals as Sheriff Lucilia Cable, Maria Sten as Liz Treymane, Will Patton as Avery Sunderland, Virginia Madsen as Maria Sunderland, and Jeryl Prescott as Madame Xanadu.
Swamp Thing is executive produced by Mark Verheiden and Gary Dauberman, both of whom wrote the first episode, alongside Wan, Len Wiseman, and Michael Clear. Wiseman also directs the first installment. The series will premiere on the DC Universe streaming platform on May 31st.
