Has DC Universe cast its Swamp Thing?

It looks like DC Universe may have found its Swamp Thing.

Friday The 13th and Predators star Derek Mears is being strongly rumoured to have nailed the role in the upcoming series for DC’s streaming service.

The actor will join – if he gets the role – Crystal Reed as Abby Arcane and Maria Sten as Liz Tremayne in the series which we learned last week will be a fully r-rated adult horror/love story.

We also leaned that the show will feature a practical suit for the titular anti-hero.


We’ll keep you posted as we hear more…

When CDC researcher Abby Arcane returns to her childhood home of Houma, Louisiana, in order to investigate a deadly swamp-borne 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.

Swamp Thing will likely arrive in 2019

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….
