DC Universe has found its Swamp Thing

In addition to being 6'5" tall, the guy's genre bonafides are unimpeachable: "Mears played Jason Vorhees (in the otherwise ill-advised Friday The 13th reboot), a Predator in 2010's Predators, and a hillbilly mutant by the name of Chameleon in 2007's The Hills Have Eyes 2.

Maria Sten, Jeryl Prescott, Jennifer Beals, Virginia Madsen and Will Patton are already aboard.

The plot centers on Abby Arcane (Crystal Reed) as she investigates what seems to be a deadly swamp-born virus in a small town in Louisiana but soon discovers that the swamp holds mystical and terrifying secrets. "When unexplainable and chilling horrors emerge from the murky marsh, no one is safe".

Bean's character, Alec Holland, is a passionate biologist who finds himself in nightmarish circumstances as he realizes that the freakish disease affecting townspeople may have come as a result of his work in the swamp.

Teresa Giudice's Father Giacinto Gorga in Hospital: Hear Her Message
She does have Gia , 17, Gabrielle , 14, Milania , 12, and Audriana , 9, to think of, after all. I have four daughters to raise, and I don't understand why people would criticize me for that.

Should Swamp Thing be picked up to series, it would join Titans in the live-action sector of DC Universe and other original series (albeit animated) Young Justice: Outsiders and Harley Quinn.

It's not a spoiler to say that Holland's encounter with these supernatural forces will transform him into the titular Swamp Thing. "When dark forces converge on the town of Marais, Swamp Thing must embrace what he has become in order to defend the town as well as the natural world at large". Mark Verheiden (Battlestar Galactica, Netflix's Daredevil) and Gary Dauberman (It) are attached to co-write the series and act as showrunners, with James Wan (Aquaman) set to executive-produce the series alongside Verheiden, Dauberman, and Michael Clear.

Bean played Greg on the Starz drama Power for the first three seasons, and co-starred in the HBO drama Here and Now. He is repped by TalentWorks and Magnolia Entertainment.
