With production beginning production sometime this month, DC Universe has enlisted Andy Bean to play Alec Holland and Derek Mears to wear the Swamp Thing suit. You can read the official character description below.
Emerging from the swamp with a monstrous physique and strange new powers over plant life, the man who was once Alec Holland struggles to hold onto his humanity. When dark forces converge on the town of Marais, Swamp Thing must embrace what he has become in order to defend the town as well as the natural world at large. Prior to his life as the elemental hero, Holland was a biologist who gets caught in the crosshairs of a small town nightmare, when he discovers a bizarre local illness may be connected to his work in the swamp.
Bean and Mears are joining Crystal Reed, Maria Sten, Will Patton, Jeryl Prescott, and Virgina Madsen.
‘Swamp Thing’ hails from James Wan, Mark Verheiden, Gary Dauberman, Michael Clear, and Len Weisman. It will premiere exclusively on DC Universe sometime in 2019.
