The highly anticipated Swamp Thing DC Universe TV series is now filming as the first set images have landed online.
The set pics posted to Twitter reveal a look at Crystal Reed as Abby Arcane and Andy Bean as Alec Holland, with the character eventually going on to become Swamp Thing, with the monster form being played by Derek Mears.
Swamp Thing also stars Maria Sten as Liz Tremayne, Jeryl Prescott as Madame Xanadu, Virginia Madsen as Maria Sunderland, Will Patton as Avery Sunderland, with Kevin Durand playing the villain of the series, Jason Woodrue, aka Floronic Man, a brilliant but abrasive scientist who gets transmogrified super-villain into the super-villain.
The series is set to debut next year on the DC Universe app.
The Swamp Thing series sees Alec Holland caught in the cross-hairs when he discovers a mystery may connect to his work in the swamp. That leads him into conflict with dark forces, from which he emerges as the elemental hero known as Swamp Thing. As the monster struggles to hold onto his humanity, he must embrace what he has become in order to defend the town as well as the natural world at large.
When CDC researcher Abby Arcane returns to her childhood home of Houma, Louisiana, in order to investigate a deadly swamp-born virus, she develops a surprising bond with scientist Alec Holland — only to have him tragically taken from her. But as powerful forces descend on Houma, intent on exploiting the swamp’s mysterious properties for their own purposes, Abby will discover that the swamp holds mystical secrets, both horrifying and wondrous — and the potential love of her life may not be dead after all.
