Derek Mears to Portray in DC Universe Swamp Thing Series

Several news outlets have reported that Derek Mears is up to be portraying Swamp Thing in suit for the upcoming live-action series. For those who are not aware, Mears is most famous for starring as Jason Voorhees in the 2009 reboot of Friday the 13th. He has also portrayed the “classic” Predator in the 2010 Predators film and has previously worked in live-action comic adaptions in the past. Seeing as the series is set for a “Hard R” rating, it is quite fitting to cast an actor who has delved into the horror genre in the past.

Currently it is unknown who will be playing Alec Holland so stay tuned for updates.

Swamp Thing is set to premiere on the DC Universe streaming service sometime in 2019.
