Since it was only a couple of days ago, you most likely remember the Official Trailer for the DC Universe Original Series “SWAMP THING” and if you don’t just click HERE to see our post. I know the summer heat is upon us and everyone is getting ready for vacations much more than paying attention to every single post that I make over here. That series has just begun its streaming on this subscriber based service and if you are a fan of the character you might want to consider giving it a go. Let’s review the premise and casting after the dramatic Official Poster.
The Premise: Abby Arcane returns home to Houma, Louisiana to investigate a deadly swamp-borne virus, where she develops a bond with scientist Alec Holland. After Holland tragically dies, Arcane discovers the mysteries of the swamp and that Holland may not be dead after all.
The Cast and Characters:
Andy Bean and Derek Mears as Alec Holland/Swamp Thing
Crystal Reed as Abby Arcane
Maria Sten as Liz Tremayne
Jeryl Prescott as Madame Xanadu
Virginia Madsen as Maria Sunderland
Will Patton as Avery Sunderland
Henderson Wade as Matt Cable
Kevin Durand as Jason Woodrue
Jennifer Beals as Lucilia Cable
Ian Ziering as Daniel Cassidy/Blue Devil
Leonardo Nam as Harlan Edwards
PiercingMetal Thoughts: Having already mentioned that I was NOT a subscriber to the DC Universe service I will again stress that its NOT based on disinterest but on the fact that I am already maintaining far too many accounts of this kind. As many of you know I gave it a brief whirl when the “Titans” series was just beginning but then let it go. Remember that I was dismayed at the lack of content and that I had to watch it on my laptop, Kindle Fire tablet or mobile phone as opposed to the giant screen TV I own thanks to it not being an app on my Playstation 3. Now that there are three shows in play and the “Harley Quinn” cartoon coming, perhaps I will give this another chance. I will wait until the New York Comic Con of course since I want to be able to get through a few episodes at a time. What is the larger reader stance on all of this? Are you down with this or are you not? Chime in down below in the comments section.
