DC Universe has already added another scripted original series to its dossier as Swamp Thing has been revealed to be in development for the streaming service.
James Wan confirmed his involvement over Twitter.
Been developing this “vegetarian hero” for awhile now 🙂 With a great team. Happy to finally share. Expect — mood, mystery, gothic romance, and swamp monsters! https://t.co/WbZ9Lb6iBR

Mark Verheiden and Gary Dauberman are attached to co-write the script and serve as showrunners on the live-action drama. Wan will executive produce. It has a script-to-series order meaning that if the script looks like a banger this sucker will get a series order.
Heres a description of the potential series:
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.
I have to say even if the show sucks the title card is awesome. Make sure to check out the other ones released for the other 3 original series.
Do you think DC Universe can succeed?
