Produced by James Wan, the upcoming "Swamp Thing" series is slated for a 2019 premiere on DC's streaming service, and director Len Wiseman (Underworld) has shared our first look at the series via Instagram. The first photo features stars Andy Bean and Crystal Reed on set and the second behind the scenes look in a video filmed in the swampy setting.
We're hoping for images of the titular character very soon!
The series is based on the DC characters created by Len Wein and Bernie Wrightson and is written by “Ash vs. Evil Dead” writer Mark Verheiden and IT co-writer Gary Dauberman.
"Swamp Thing” centers on CDC researcher Abby Arcane. When she 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, both horrifying and wondrous — and the potential love of her life may not be dead after all.
Derek Mears will be donning the practical effects creature suit in the series that also stars Jennifer Beals, Virginia Madsen, Ian Ziering,Will Patton, Kevin Durand, Henderson Wade, Jeryl Prescott and Maria Sten.
Last we heard, the series is planned to be scary and feature "R" rated violence. Stay tuned for more updates!
