The DC Universe streaming service appears to be shaping up as a home for the more obscure side of the DC Comics world. Doom Patrol is set to film this summer, while Titans will launch sometime this year. Now, the third series in the service’s lineup, Swamp Thing, looks set to commence production very soon.
According to the folks at Omega Underground, Swamp Thing will begin shooting as soon as this fall, specifically in North Carolina. The series is produced by Aquaman director James Wan, with Mark Verheiden (Falling Skies) and Gary Dauberman (It) serving as showrunners. There’s still no mention of any actors attached to star in the series, but it’s a safe bet that we can expect some casting news soon if production starts before the year’s end.
Swamp Thing is based on the DC Comics title of the same name, featuring a grotesque and deformed character with unique environment altering powers. A number of different individuals have taken up the Swamp Thing mantle ever since the character’s debut in 1971, so it’ll be interesting to see which route Verheiden and Dauberman choose to take.
