We heard the news that the production on DC Universe’s Swamp Thing had been shut down and that the 13-episode series would be cut down to 10-episodes, and now a new teaser trailer is released. I think they released the trailer to keep the excitement and faith going on in the upcoming series.
The teaser offers us our first look at the monster, it’s very much in line with the comic book design and it looks pretty darn scary.
I just hope that the rewrites that are being done for the ending don’t completely wreck the story that the creative team basically set out to tell. This is the one DC series that I was actually super hyped about watching!
“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.
Swamp Thing is scheduled for release in 2019 on DC Universe.
