Actor Derek Mears has reportedly been cast as the titular creature in DC's Swamp Thing. Mears is best known for playing Jason Voorhees in 2009's Friday The 13th and "Classic" Predator in 2010's Predators, so he's well familiar with the horror genre. 

"Swamp Thing" centers on CDC researcher Abby Arcane. When she 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. But as powerful forces descend on Houma, intent on exploiting the swamp's mysterious properties for their own purposes, Abby will discover that the swamp holds mystical secrets, both horrifying and wondrous — and the potential love of her life may not be dead after all.

Swamp Thing written by Ash vs. Evil Dead writer Mark Verheiden and IT co-writer Gary Dauberman and starring Crystal Reed as Abby Arcane and Maria Sten as Liz Tremayne, is set to debut in 2019 on DC Universe.
