DC’s ‘Swamp Thing’ Gives Us A Superhero Horror Mashup

May 10, 2019

Category: Entertainment

The Swamp Thing character was created in 1971 by Len Wein, as the comic book writer was riding the subway in Queens. The new Swamp Thing TV Show trailer gives us a glimpse of the familiar tale of scientist Alec Holland who comes into contact with a swamp-borne virus.

The trailer feels like a horror project with the shots draped in darkness and creatures eerily rising in the background, which makes sense since James Wan, who directed The Conjuring films, is the executive producer. We never get a clear glimpse of the hero, as he emerges from the water, but that’s not necessarily a bad thing. The trailer gives you just enough to chew on to get you interested. Starring Andy Bean, Henderson Wade, and Jennifer Beals, The Swamp Thing TV series will premiere exclusively on the DC streaming platform on May 31.
