  • James Wan's Swamp Thing Series Ordered For DC Streaming Service

DC Entertainment's upcoming on-demand streaming service, DC Universe, is filling out its programming slate by dredging up a classic comics character to stalk TV screens once again.

The newly announced DC Universe was revealed with a number of new logos of shows that will be brought over to their new streaming platform, including series such as Titans, Harley Quinn and Young Justice: Outsiders.

Are you looking forward to this Swamp Thing series? Or to be fair, perhaps DC does know what to do, but they're stuck with their parent company Warner Bros. who seem to be intent on self-sabtaging every one of their comic book movies coming out at the moment. DC Universe, the DC digital service, is set debut later this year.

Twitter and Disney/ESPN strike deal on live content
On Monday evening Twitter also revealed plans to pair some of its top creators with brands for in-stream video partnerships. The new list of originals doubles the number of Twitter Shows from the network's 16 options previous year .

Swamp Thing is in development and expected to debut sometime in 2019 on DC Universe.

Mark Verheiden (Battlestar Galactica) and Gary Dauberman (It) will pen the pilot and serve as EPs alongside James Wan and Michael Clear. But any streaming service is going to a pretty steady flow of original content to keep viewers paying that monthly fee, so what else does DC Universe have in the pipeline?

The project comes from Atomic Monster in association with Warner Bros. Wan confirmed his involvement in the project on his Twitter account. Verheiden and Dauberman are also set to executive produce as well.

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.

This is far from Swamp Thing's first foray into live-action.

The property has been adapted multiple times over the years, including a 1982 feature written and directed by Wes Craven and based on the character created by Wein and Bernie Wrightson starring Ray Wise. In the action-packed series, Dick Grayson emerges from the shadows to become the leader of a fearless band of new heroes, including Starfire, Raven and many others.
