DC Universe's Swamp Thing arrives at the end of the month and some new artwork for the series has surfaced from late last week at a fan event, which featured appearances from the cast members of the series. The first is a stand-up promotional image that shows this modern incarnation of the character throwing back to a classic comic book cover in which the titular creature holds the bones of his former human self. Check out a cool side-by-side below!
In addition, the very same event featured a first look at the latest poster for the series, which we also have for your viewing pleasure just below.
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.
