I’m a huge Swamp Thing fan, so when I heard a new TV show was in the works I was instantly on board. When I found out it was going to only be available through DC’s online streaming service, DC Universe, I was less than thrilled. However, with today’s reveal of how the titular character looks, I may have to add another service to my list.
DC Universe released a teaser today that gives us our first look at Swampie as he emerges from the murky Southern depths, and not much else. Still, it’s a relief to finally see Swamp Thing look the way he has always been intended to be seen. This looks very comics accurate in a way that could have not been possible decades ago when they tried with the campy movies of yesteryear.
Watch the teaser trailer below:
Here is their official synopsis of the show: 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.
“Swamp Thing” premieres on May 31 exclusively on DC Universe. He Joins the Doom Patrol and Teen Titans, who are already streaming on the service.
