'Swamp Thing' Casts Andy Bean and Derek Mears as Series Leads

FilmMagic  FilmMagic DC

The Holland character is a biologist whose swamp-based research might have afflicted the people who he lives around, leading him to a major metamorphosis from which he emerges as the Swamp Thing.

Mears' role was rumored months ago, but was only just confirmed by Warner Bros.

She'll be joined in the cast by Will Patton as Avery Sunderland, Jeryl Prescott as Madame Xanadu, and Maria Sten playing Liz Tremayne. "Prior to his life as the elemental hero, Holland was a biologist who gets caught in the crosshairs of a small town nightmare, when he discovers a weird local illness may be connected to his work in the swamp". In addition to being 6'5" tall, the guy's genre bonafides are unimpeachable: "Mears played Jason Vorhees (in the otherwise ill-advised Friday The 13th reboot), a Predator in 2010's Predators, and a hillbilly mutant by the name of Chameleon in 2007's The Hills Have Eyes 2. He soon finds he has to use his newfound powers to defend the Louisiana town of Marais from "dark forces" that arise.

Horror master James Wan is producing the new series, and expressed his excitement on social media when it was announced. "Her poised existence is shaken further when the return of Abby Arcane reawakens a deep grief over the loss of Maria's daughter, Shawna, drawing her into the dark supernatural mysteries emerging from the swamp", Deadline notes.

With DC Universe's Swamp Thing scheduled to make it's debut sometime in 2019, the production team has been busy putting together the cast.

An adaptation of the cult-favorite DC comic, Swamp Thing is set to revolve around CDC researcher Abby Arcane (Crystal Reed) traveling to small-town Louisiana to investigate what seems to be a deadly swamp-born virus.
