    Awesome news! James Wan might just be the best thing to happen to DC in quite a bit. A side from Guillermo Del Toro, Swamp Thing couldn't be in better hands than in Wan's! This news also makes me now even more hyped for Aquaman.

    Just take the original Len Wein run and put it to the screen, then do the same for Saga of the Swamp Thing.

    I do love Swampy. Constantine appearance for a couple episodes is a must.

    This would be the series most worthy of Matt Ryan's Constantine appearance.

    I just hope Swampy is CG, we simply cannot have a man in a costume in this day and age.

    Who knows what the budget will be in this but I can’t imagine it being very high.
    I’d rather have a man in a suit than some bad CG and and his appearances being spotty.

    I’d rather it be mostly practical and enhanced with CG

    Cool I love swamp thing.

    Interested to see how see how they do his powers now on a TV budget. Special effects have moved on a lot from the old Swamp Thing Movies and Tv show days.

    It sounds like Abby Arcane might be the focus/POV character here.

    I hope so, she’s such a great character.

    Yeah that’s an interesting point about cgi. Can you have a wholely cgi character in a tv show?

    They could always whack a gilly suit on him and say job done lol
