Don’t get your hopes up that the first preview of DC Universe’s ‘Swamp Thing‘ will show off the main creature but director Len Wiseman does have both a behind-the-scenes shot of a couple actors and video that shows the swamp itself! This is our first taste of the upcoming series and a win for fans who have been dying to see anything from the show. The first shot featured Wiseman sharing details with Andy Bean who is slated to play Dr. Alec Holland and Crystal Reed who is tackling the central role of Abby Arcane.

Of course, the fun image is the swamp itself where we’ll eventually see Derek Mears playing Swamp Thing after Dr. Alec Holland becomes the character. For those unfamiliar with the lore of these characters, DC Universe describes Bean’s character as a passionate biologist who is “caught in the crosshairs of a small town nightmare when he discovers a bizarre local illness may be connected to his work in the swamp. His discovery leads him into conflict with dark forces, from which he emerges as the elemental hero known as Swamp Thing.”
That looks relatively creepy and probably the perfect place to film this new show!

The drama follows what happens when CDC researcher Abby Arcane returns to her childhood home of Houma, Louisiana, in order to investigate a deadly swamp-borne virus. There, 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.
