The pilot episode of Swamp Thing is set to air at the end of the month, and DC Universe has now released a new promo which really plays up the show's horror elements.

The footage gives us a glimpse of some gruesome goings on in the swamp and Abby Arcane's (Crystal Reed) lab, and right at the end we get another awesome look at Derek Mears as the Avatar of The Green.

Reviews for the first two episodes of Swamp Thing are now online, and most of them are very positive. The show has been described as disturbing, gory, and DC Universe's best effort yet. Better than Doom Patrol? We'll see about that!

Check out the new teaser below along with some promo stills and let us know what you think.

Alec Holland


In the comics, Alec Holland (Andy Bean) is shot and dumped in the swamp, before emerging as the monstrous Swamp Thing. This was later retconned by Alan Moore to make the creature an entirely new entity that had simply retained Holland's thoughts and memories, so it'll be interesting to see which route the show takes.

Abby Arcane


The show's female lead Abby Arcane (Crystal Reed) is shown here about to perform an autopsy on a handsome fellow that was presumably pulled out of the swamp. Will whatever caused these abnormalities factor into the creation of the Swamp Thing?

Alec and Abby


Just as they do in the comics, Abby Arcane and Alec Holland will embark on a relationship that ends abruptly and tragically when the latter is lost to the swamp. They do pick things up once Holland reemerges as a huge, green monster... obviously.

Abby #2


Fans were a little disappointed that Abby wasn't given her trademark silver-streaked hair, but all it'll take is one good fright - something that this character is bound to endure at some point.

Swamp Thing


An awesome new look at Derek Mears in that comic-accurate, practical Swamp Thing suit. Will the Avatar of the Green start out as the antagonist of the story before his true nature comes to light?

The Swamp


Swamp Thing” centers on CDC researcher Abby Arcane (Reed). When she returns to her childhood home of Houma, Louisiana, in order to investigate a deadly swamp-borne virus, 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.

Swamp Thing is being developed as a one-hour show, and has Mark Verheiden (Battlestar Galactica) and Gary Dauberman (It) on board to write the pilot. They'll also executive produce alongside Michael Clear and James Wan. Len Wiseman will helm the first episode.
