Swamp Thing – Reveal Teaser

DC Universe has put out a first look for Swamp Thing.

The live-action series is based on the character of the same name, which is actually the consciousness of scientist Alec Holland latched onto a monstrous plant-creature that resulted from a laboratory explosion/restorative formula combination.

Swamp Thing stars Andy Bean as Holland before the transformation and Derek Mears after, but will focus on Crystal Reed as Abby Arcane, Holland’s love interest from the comics. Arcane is a doctor with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, who journeys to Louisiana in order to investigate a swamp-borne illness. There she meets and bonds with Alec Holland and though his untimely death cuts their friendship short, Arcane begins to suspect he might not be so dead after all.

Joining Reed, Bean, and Mears will be Jeryl Prescott (The Walking Dead) as Madame Xanadu, Will Patton (Remember the Titans) as Avery Sunderland, and Virginia Madsen (Dune) as Maria Sunderland.

Swamp Thing will join Doom Patrol and Titans as DC Universe’s live-action offerings. It will premiere on May 31.
