    M3h, I wasn't going to get at at first, did the trial ish with Titans then just held on to it more for the comics than anything. Everyone and their mother seems to be coming out with a streaming service these days, perhaps DC should have tried to partner with another streaming entity in some way rather than just being out there on their own so as not to be depending and hoping comic book fans line up in droves to subscribe to the service.

    As a fan of practical effects, i'm glad they are using that on Swamp Thing as i've been a fan of the character since i saw the movie on cable when i was 4 and read the comics since.

    Yeah, not sure why there was a need for so many streaming services. This will just make people choose one from the many and ignore the rest. I mean on cable or sattelite you'd get many, many channels for the same price they are asking for just one (at least here in my country we do, only stuff like HBO needs extra payment).
    DC, CBS and Disney were just greedy and did not want to split profits with Netflix. Will bite them in the ass, I bet. I think they will eventually fold and come back to Netflix, same as how Hasbro eventually gave up on the Hub.

    I need to figure out how to get one of these for my Swamp Thing display in the office!

    I'm stoked for the show! Going to wait a month or so before subscribing just to give me a chance to binge a bit. I've been a Swamp Thing fan since the mid-80's when I found one of the comics in a LCS, so I damn near lost my mind when I started seeing some of the trailers...

    Swamp Thing Casts Aquaman Star as a Major Villain

    Michael Beach has been cast as villainous businessman Nathan Ellery in DC Universe's Swamp Thing. This is the actor's second major DC role after playing Jesse Kane, the father of Black Manta, in 2018's Aquaman. This also marks Beach's second time working with director James Wan, who executive produces Swamp Thing and directed Aquaman.

    Beach's role as Ellery will be a recurring one, according to Deadline. The character is a polished but ruthless businessman who uses his company as a front for his criminal activities.

    Yeah, I thought it was pretty good — nice production value.

    I mean, I might have liked something a little closer to the classic origin, but this works

    Well that scene in the Autopsy room reminded me of the Thing.
