DC has offered a first look at its upcoming TV retelling of Swamp Thing in the form of a new teaser trailer. It doesn’t reveal much but it does a good job of setting the atmosphere:
Swamp Thing is hailing from James Wan’s Atomic Monster production Company and Warner Bros Television. It will premiere on the DC Universe digital subscription service in May 2019.
The show stars Andy Bean (Power) as Dr Alec Holland, Derek Mears (Friday The 13th) as the Swamp Thing, Crystal Reed (Gotham, Teen Wolf) as Abby Arcane, Virginia Madsen (Candyman) as Maria Sunderland (Channel Zero), Maria Sten as Liz Tremayne, Jeryl Prescott (The Walking Dead) as Madame Xanadu and Jennifer Beals (Flashdance, The L Word) as Sheriff Lucilia Cable.
Len Wiseman (Sleepy Hollow, Lucifer, Underworld) is directed the pilot episode of the series. Wan is executive producing alongside his Atomic Monster colleagues Michael Clear and Rob Hackett. The script is written by Mark Verheiden (Battlestar Galactica, Daredevil) and Gary Dauberman (It, It Part 2), both of whom are also executive producers.
