The James Wan-produced “Swamp Thing” is arriving on the DC Universe streaming service on May 31st, with Derek Mears (Friday the 13th, Hatchet 3) in the role of the titular monster. Mears will be donning a practical suit in the series, and a new image released today gives us an even clearer look at the costume.
Check it out with a few other shots below.
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.
"Swamp Thing" also stars Virginia Madsen, Jennifer Beals, Adrienne Barbeau, Ian Ziering,Will Patton, Kevin Durand, Henderson Wade, Jeryl Prescott and Maria Sten.
The series is planned to be scary and feature "R" rated violence, primarily focusing on Alan Moore's run.
