Writer Reveals Canceled Plans for SWAMP THING Season 2
As we all know all too well, DC Universe canceled IT and Annabelle writer Gary Dauberman’s awesome Swamp Thing series before a single episode aired earlier this year.
And Dauberman recently told ComicBookMovie.com, “Season one is very much like a movie in that it has a beginning, middle, and end, and is one story told over the course of ten episodes and what I liked a lot about the comics is that there’s like werewolf in a hospital and things like that, so we would have had episodes like an anthology with standalone stories.“
He continues, “The swamp is very much the kitchen sink of supernatural terror and, as you know, you can go into different subgenres of horror with that and I was really looking forward to exploring that in season two and getting into some of the more twisted horror tales from the later comics.
He adds, “It just would have got weirder. For people who don’t know the character, season one was telling people what Swamp-Thing was all about but season two was going to be more about getting into the deeper, twisted, weirder, and gross ideas.”
Based on the character created by Len Wein, Bernie Wrightson, and Alan Moore, Swamp Thing was developed by Dauberman and Mark Verheiden. James Wan (The Conjuring) and Len Wiseman (Live Free or Die Hard) were executive producers.
It starred Crystal Reed as Abigail “Abby” Arcane, Virginia Madsen as Maria Sunderland, Henderson Wade as Matt Cable, Maria Sten as Liz Tremayne, Jeryl Prescott as Nimue Inwudu / Xanadu, Jennifer Beals as Lucilia Cable, Will Patton as Avery Sunderland, Kevin Durand as Jason Woodrue / Floronic Man, Andy Bean as Alec Holland, and Derek Mears as Swamp Thing.
