When Swamp Thing finally crawls to shore later this year on the DC Streaming Universe, he’ll be doing so with the intention of making you crap yourself in fear. The new teaser comes just days after news that the series was re-worked to finish its first season in fewer episodes due to the producers’ exit.

If there’s one thing that we learned from the new trailer, it’s that James Wan is leaning hard into the horror roots of Swamp Thing. The new footage, along with the reaction to Swamp Thing’s reveal feels more like it’s straight out of a horror film than a comic book inspired series.

SWAMP THING follows Abby Arcane 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.

Based on the DC characters originally written and drawn by Len Wein and Bernie Wrightson. A new original series #DCUSWAMPTHING premieres May 31. New episodes weekly, only on #DCUniverse. Join Now at: https://yourdcu.com/swampthingteaser
