I’ve been excited to see some actual footage from the live-action Swamp Thing series from producer James Wan, IT screenwriter Gary Dauberman, and director Len Wiseman. DC Universe has finally given us a solid look at the upcoming DC Comics horror streaming series from a new teaser trailer released online and it does look like they put a lot of money into this thing.
SWAMP THING follows Abby Arcane as she investigates what seems to be a deadly swamp-born virus in a small town in Louisiana but soon discovers that the swamp holds mystical and terrifying secrets. When unexplainable and chilling horrors emerge from the murky marsh, no one is safe.
Check out the teaser trailer for yourselves.
I have to admit that Swamp Thing might have been one of the first superheroes I got into as a kid alongside Batman (granted at the time I wasn’t terribly aware he was a comic book character), so I’ll be curious how dark they’ll actually go and if the rumblings behind the scenes could really spell trouble for the show.
Swamp Thing begins airing on the DC Universe streaming service on May 31st.
