After announcing the premiere date at WonderCon 2019, DC UNIVERSE teases the big “reveal” of their upcoming horror drama, Swamp Thing, starring Crystal Reed, Derek Mears and Andy Bean. The DC Comics superhero monster, created by Len Wein and Bernie Wrightson, joins DC Universe’s original live-action lineup, which includes Titans and Doom Patrol.  

Abby Arcane (Crystal Reed) investigates what seems to be a deadly swamp-born virus in a small town in Louisiana, only to soon discover that the swamp holds mystical and terrifying secrets.

Here are 5 reasons we’re excited for Swamp Thing:

5) The Reveal!

What’s the big reveal? Well, we get to see Swamp Thing rising from his natural habitat in all his in his mossy, shambling glory. Notice how the water is murky and there’s an underlying green vibe in the eerie atmosphere. I’m loving the look and it looks so different from Wes Craven’s previous take. 

4) Underworld!

According to Deadline, Ian Ziering, best known for his role as Steve Sanders on Beverly Hills 90210, will be seen in the upcoming first season. Ziering joins a recurring guest star role. The Sharknado actor will play Hollywood has-been Daniel Cassidy, a.k.a. the Blue Devil.

3) He Dares You!

Sharing the reveal on his Instagram, Ziering mentioned, “Try draining this Swamp, I dare you.”

3) The Monster!

Andy Bean will be playing scientist Alec Holland and Derek Mears will be playing the defender of The Green, Swamp Thing I’m so excited to see how the actors will portray the creature. Will Swamp Thing be more existential like in Alan Moore and Stephen R. Bissette’s run? Or will Swamp Thing fight The Red like in Scott Snyder and Yanick Paquette’s run?
