Next month, Len Wein and Bernie Wrightson’s iconic creation, Swamp Thing, will return to live-action with a new series on DC Universe. Now, a new teaser trailer has dropped for the show, which appears to embrace the horror elements in the comic.
In the clip, Abby Arcane (Crystal Reed) discovers a few of the terrifying secrets hidden in the swamps of Louisiana. Abby is a CDC doctor who is trying cure a deadly virus, which strikes a young child in this clip. However, Abby gets more than she bargained for when she meets the Swamp Thing himself. She has no idea that it’s actually her friend and colleague, Alec Holland (Andy Bean), a scientist who was transformed into a monstrous form portrayed by Derek Mears.
Maria Sten co-stars as Liz Tremayne, with Henderson Wade as Matt Cable, and Jennifer Beals as Lucilia Cable. Jeryl Prescott is portraying Madame Xanadu, while Ian Ziering is playing Daniel Cassidy, a faded movie star who is destined to become Blue Devil. Will Patton and Virginia Madsen also star in the series as Avery and Maria Sunderland.
Swamp Thing will premiere on May 31 on DC Universe. What do you think about the new teaser trailer? Let us know in the comment section below!
