An upcoming live-action Swamp Thing series is coming to the DC Universe Streaming Service and while little is known about the series, we have just gotten our first cast member.
Deadline are reporting that Crystal Reed will play the DC Comics and Swamp Thing character Abigail “Abby” Arcane.
Abigail Arcane is known as Swamp Thing‘s famous love interest from the comics. She is being described as “smart and caring; a strong sense of empathy puts her at the centre of a horrific life-threatening epidemic in her hometown, where she faces emotional demons from her past.”
Crytal Reed is no stranger to the DC Universe or even DCTV as she is mostly well known for playing Sofia Falcone on Fox’s Batman prequel series Gotham. She has also made other appearances in shows such as Teen Wolf.
The Swamp Thing series is currently in development over at Warner Bros and the pilot is being written by Mark Verheiden and Gary Dauberman with Len Wiseman set to direct and Aquaman director James Wan set to executive produce.
