If you were wondering which of the new shows coming to the DC Universe Streaming Service were going to be ‘adult’ oriented, we now know one is. Warner Brothershas announced that ‘Swamp Thing‘ is getting an ‘R’ rating. In Addition we have learned that ‘Swamp Thing‘ will be wearing a suit and is not going to be CGI! Check out more details on this below and let us know if you will be watching!
In an interview with /Film, writer Gary Dauberman shared some new details on the James Wan-produced horror series, providing some insight into how the titular creature will look on screen: “Swamp Thing himself looks incredible […] 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.”
Still, while it may not look like the costume seen in the Swamp Thing series from 1990, Dauberman stressed that it “is a physical costume.” Whether this means the practical suit won’t be enhanced with CGI, however, remains to be seen.
Aside from discussing the character’s design, the writer also made it very clear that Swamp Thing would be a hard R series.
“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.”
