DC’s streaming service is currently showing the Titans. Doom Patrol will debut in 2019. Now Swamp Thing starts production this fall in North Carolina. Swamp Thing will be directed by James Wan. James is famous for be a director in Insidious (2010), Insidious: Chapter 2 (2013), Conjuring (2013), Furious 7 (2015), The Conjuring 2 (2016) and Aquaman (2018).
Swamp Thing first appearance was in House of Secrets #92 (July 1971) published by DC Comics and created by Len Wein and Bernie Wrightson. Swamp Thing fought against people who killed his wife and people who caused him to turn into this monster. One of the villains will be Dr. Anton Arcane. Dr. Arcane has an obsession of immortality. Swamp Thing has developed a special bond with Dr. Arcane’s niece, Abigail. This TV show will be similar to the movie The Shape of Water (2017 American dark romantic fantasy movie winning Best Picture).
The cast of Swamp Thing is starting to be complete. Jennifer Beals (famous for her role in L Word and Taken) will be playing the part of Sheriff Lucilla Cable. Crystal Reed (famous for her role in TV Wolf and Gotham) will be playing the part of Abby Arcane.
Kevin Durand is in negotiation to play Jason Woodrue also known as Floronic Man. Check out my yesterday blog about Floronic Man.
The picture above is a courtesy from dc.wiki.com Will Patton will play the character of Avery Sunderland, the main villain. This character first appeared in Saga of the Swamp Thing 6 (October 1982) published by DC Comics.
Avery is the CEO and owner of Sunderland Corporation. He became fascinated with Swamp Thing. He set his goal to capture him and study him. He thought he killed him with a bullet in his head. Floronic Man told him that Swamp Thing is just a plant with a human memory and a plant can’t be killed with a bullet. Swamp Thing woke up and killed Avery in rage.
Saga of the Swamp Thing 6 can be bought on ebay for $10 plus shipping.
