Swamp Thing's R Rating Means Hot Plantman On Human Action!

The R rating will be harder than you'll be.

Swamp Thing writer Gary Dauberman's background in horror seems to make him the perfect fit on the TV show. Having written AnnabelleIt, and The Nun, Dauberman is leaning into the hard R-rating of the show.

This is one, when you talked earlier about the rating for The Nun, we always set out to make Swamp Thing as hard R as we could and go graphic with the violence, with the adult themes and make it as scary as possible. Because we're doing it through the DC streaming service, they really pushed us, although they didn't have to push hard, for us to go as extreme as we could. We really took our inspiration from the Alan Moore run in Swamp Thing, this landmark I think run. Fans of that series will know it gets pretty weird and extreme and scary. We really wanted to live up to that standard that Moore set up back in the '80s.

Dauberman also confirmed that Swamp Thing will still involve a physical suit as well.

Then of course it allows us, Swamp Thing himself looks incredible what Justin Raleigh and the guys over at Fractured are doing with the suit. So it's going to look amazing and less of the "man in suit" that you've seen in the movie and the other TV show.

He also confirmed that the show will be an origin story focusing on Abby Arcane.

Yeah, it's the origin story of the Swamp Thing and it's Alec Holland wrestling with who he's become. A lot of it's told through the point of view of Abby Arcane.

Swamp Thing, starring Crystal Reed as Abby Arcane and Maria Sten as Liz Tremayne, is set to debut in 2019 on DC Universe.
