James Gunn and Peter Safran’s DC is set to explore some of the universe’s darker corners. During the duo’s slate reveal, it was announced that a Swamp Thing movie is being developed.
Created by Len Wein and Bernie Wrightson in 1971, the character first appeared in House of Secrets #92. Originally conceived as a scientist named Alec Holland who was transformed into a plant monster, he was eventually reconceived as a plant monster that believed he was a man. The character is the defender of the Parliament of Trees, an elemental community that rules over Earth’s plant life through the Green. Since his debut, the Swamp Thing has become a major character in the DC Universe and has gone on to serve on the Justice League Dark.
