Swamp Thing writer Gary Dauberman, during an interview with Slash Film, went on to talk on of the DC Universe live action series that’s set to be release sometime next year, on the DC Comics digital streaming service.
In his interview Dauberman went on to talk on the tone of the series, going on to say that they always set out to make Swamp Thing a hard R, with graphic violence, adult themes and as scary as possible. As they’ve been inspired by Alan Moore’s run of the comic book 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.”
Swamp Thing is being being produced by James Wan’s Atomic Monster in association with Warner Bros. Television.
