Swamp Thing Casts Villain

The DC Universe app series Swamp Thing has cast its villain for the series with Kevin Durand as Jason Woodrue, aka Floronic Man, a brilliant but abrasive scientist who gets transmogrified super-villain into the super-villain.

In the comics, Floronic Mana is a plant/human hybrid who wishes to eradicate all animal life.

The news follows Swamp Thing being cast with Andy Bean playing the human form of biologist Alec Holland, with Derek Mears playing the monster form.

Also cast in the series includes Crystal Reed as Abby Arcane, Maria Sten as Liz Tremayne, Jeryl Prescott as Madame Xanadu, Virginia Madsen as Maria Sunderland and Will Patton as Avery Sunderland.

Kevin Durand is known for playing The Blob in X-Men Origins: Wolverine as well as roles in Lost and The Strain.

Swamp Thing

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.
