Swamp Thing Release Date and Past Plots

DC Swamp Thing will be coming up on the DC Universe new initiative of streaming service, which is set to launch on September 15, The Batman Day. Swamp Thing is going to be dark, violent and mature rated TV show. Swamp Thing release date will be sometime in 2019 along with Doom Patrol and Young Justice: Outsiders. Before these the very first show to premiere on the network will the Titans, dropping on October 12. Below are all the details related to Swamp Thing Cast and any Plot details we know.

Swamp Thing made his debut in 1971 and was created by comic legends Len Wein and Bernie Wrightson. Alec Holland, who later became Swamp Thing, was a brilliant scientist. When he denied selling his “bio-restorative formula”, his lab was sabotaged. His body was ravaged by various chemicals and to survive that he jumped into the nearby swamp. He lived to tell the tale but he was no all human but kind of a hybrid of plant and human. It is yet to be confirmed, will Alec Holland be hybrid of human and plant or a whole plant who knows he is a human.

Interview with Gary Dauberman

In an interview, the show writer Gary Dauberman will heavily draw from Alan Moore’s seminal run on the comic.

“We always set out to make Swamp Thing as hard R as we could and go graphic with the violence, with the adult themes and make it as scary as possible. Because we’re doing it through the DC streaming service, they really pushed us, although they didn’t have to push hard, for us to go as extreme as we could. We really took our inspiration from the Alan Moore run in Swamp Thing, this landmark I think run. Fans of that series will know it gets pretty weird and extreme and scary. We really wanted to live up to that standard that Moore set up back in the ‘80s.”

This will not be the first time Swamp Thing will be hitting the screen. The character had already been the centre of two films. The first was released in 1982 and was directed by Wes Craven. The second one was its sequel that dropped in 1989. Apart from this, Alec Holland also has had his own TV show which aired from 1990 to ’93. Swam Thing stuff has always been successful, be it a straightforward horror comic book created by Wein and Wrightson or Alan Moore’s run, which completely redefined the character by steeping the book in existential philosophy.

Swamp Thing Cast

From all the reports and revelations, it seems that the team behind the show has every intention of running the show with source material. The show will be produced by James Wan’s Atomic Monster and will be directed by Underworld creator Len Wiseman. The writing part of the show will be done by Gar Dauberman and Mark Verheiden. The Swamp Thing Cast includes Crystal Reed(Teen Wolf actress) as the lead role of Abby and Liz Tremayne will be played by Maria Sten. The future time will tell if the series will be successful or not, but the fans will be happy to hear that Swamp Thing has been taken seriously by the team behind it.
