DC Universe has released the first official look at its next original series, Swamp Thing, with a short teaser trailer.
The teaser opens at night in a dark swamp, as the camera navigates its waters. Suddenly the water begins to bubble at the center of the screen until Swamp Thing emerges, displaying his red eyes before the camera fades to black. We end with the Swamp Thing logo and its DC Universe debut date of May 31.
A report from earlier this morning stated production on Season 1 of the DC Universe series had ended production early, much to the surprise of the cast and crew. A source close to Warner Bros. Television told CBR the number of Season 1 episodes was reduced to 10 from the original order of 13, as a result of “creative decisions.” Swamp Thing will premiere May 31 on DC Universe, as previously announced.
Executive produced by James Wan, Mark Verheiden, Gary Dauberman, Michael Clear and Len Wiseman, Swamp Thing will premiere sometime on May 31 on the DC Universe. The supernatural horror series stars Crystal Reed, Andy Bean, Derek Mears, Jennifer Beals, Henderson Wade, Will Patton, Virginia Madsen, Jeryl Prescott, Henderson Wade and Kevin Durand.
