It’s without question that the DC Universe streaming service has been dishing out the content in a fast and furious pace. So far we’ve gotten a live action series for “Titans” and “The Doom Patrol” and now its time for “Swamp Thing” to give us a proper startle. Let’s take a look at the first teaser clip from the upcoming series that will air on the service.

PiercingMetal Thoughts: Now I should stress that I am not currently a subscriber to the DC Universe service and its not based on lack of interest but more the fact of my having too many accounts as it is. I gave it a whirl when “Titans” was just starting and while I liked the show, I didn’t stick to the account long enough to see the entire series. My biggest gripe was content at the time. There weren’t a ton of comic books to browse through and you couldn’t binge watch a series in full. Let me add to that the lack of access on my PS3 Gaming System and Amazon Kindle Fire tablet. So a number of factors for me despite my loving the character of Swamp Thing and being one of the more religious readers when it was originally on the racks some years ago. This trailer looked interesting but its only the teaser so I will hope for a longer one soon enough. I am intrigued by some of the characters that have been included such as Madame Xanadu, Woodrue and Blue Devil. Can John Constantine be far behind? I sure hope not. Anyway, what do you think of the trailer? Chime in down below in the comments.
