With production set to begin later this month, DC Universe’s ‘Swamp Thing’ has found its villain in Will Patton, who will play Avery Sunderland. You can read the official character description below.
As its most prominent businessman, Avery Sunderland (Patton) serves as the de facto patriarch of his Louisiana hometown, always giving back to the community. His benevolent veneer, however, masks a ruthless determination to harness the power of the swamp for profit.
Patton’s previous credits include ‘Halloween’ (2018), ‘Falling Skies,’ and CBS’s ‘The Good Wife.
‘Swamp Thing’ hails from James Wan, Gary Dauberman, Mark Verheiden, and Michael Clear. The pilot script was written by Verheiden and Dauberman, with Len Weisman directing.
Alongside Patton, the show stars Crystal Reed as Abby Arcane, Maria Sten as Liz Treymane, Jeryl Prescott as Madame Xandu, and Virginia Madsen as Maria Sunderland. It will premiere exclusively on DC Universe around May or June.
