DC Names Streaming Service; Announces ‘Swamp Thing’ Series

Yesterday, DC announced the name of their upcoming digital streaming service.  DC Universe will be the title of the platform, which the company describes as, “a first-of-its kind, immersive digital experience designed just for DC fans.”

Much isn’t known about the platform yet.  There’s speculation that it will include a comic book component and possibly older DC properties (Batman 1966 tv show, Smallville, various animated series, etc.), which would complement several series of new content.

Announced yesterday, was the upcoming Swamp Thing series.

Executive Produced by James Wan, Mark Verheiden, Gary Dauberman, Michael Clear and co-produced by Rob Hackett, Swamp Thing is adapted by Mark Verheiden and Gary Dauberman, based on characters from DC created by Len Wein and Bernie Wrightson.

When CDC researcher Abby Arcane 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.

The script-to-series order for the one-hour, live-action drama, Swamp Thing is targeted for a 2019 launch.

Previously announced series, the live-action Titans from Greg Berlanti, Akiva Goldsman, Geoff Johns, Sarah Schechter starring Brenton Thwaites, Anna Diop, Teagan Croft and Ryan Potter; Harley Quinn from Justin Halpern, Patrick Schumacker, and Dean Lorey; and Young Justice: Outsiders from Brandon Vietti and Greg Weisman are expected later this year.  Another previously announced series, Metropolis from John Stephens and Danny Cannon is currently being redeveloped.

DC Universe is expected to launch later this year.
