DC Universe reveal first look at Star Girl and Swamp Thing gets release date and adds classic star

April 2nd, 2019 by Marc Comments

DC Universe has released its first image of Brec Bassinger as Star Girl in the upcoming series on its streaming service.

The show is due to arrive later this year, joining the superb Doom Patrol and Titans,

It will be joined by Swamp Thing which will star Derek Mears as Swamp Thing, Andy Bean as Alec Holland, Crystal Reed as Abby Arcane and Jennifer Beals as Sheriff Lucilia Cable and it’s been announced that Adrienne Barbeau will play Alice Cable.

Barbeau starred in the original Swamp Thing movie 37 years ago, so she’s joining the long list of DC shows that cast past DC stars in new roles… which is wonderful!

It has also been announced that Swamp Thing is planned to launch on May 31st, 2019.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
