Swamp Thing Will Have Hard-R Tone, Practical Suit

We live in a great age. An age where the comics we read decades ago are actually getting treated with some reverence by Hollywood. Sure, as much as we love that 1960s Batman series, it’s hard to take something like that seriously. Now, in the age of the MCU and Arrowverse, we have networks and studios willing to give readers exactly what they’ve been reading for years, and it’s glorious.

DC Universe is the latest service to take advantage of that. As we already know, Titans will be leaning into the violence in language, and as it turns out, Swamp Thing will be doing the exact same thing, as writer Gary Dauberman revealed to /Film:

“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. We really wanted to live up to that standard that Moore set up back in the ‘80s. Then of course it allows us, Swamp Thing himself looks incredible what Justin Raleigh and the guys over at Fractured are doing with the suit. 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.”

Because Titans did it first — and because Netflix has been doing it for years with the Marvel shows — it’s not a huge surprise they’d be going for a hard-R-type series, but I am surprised to hear about the suit. While there is certainly a limit to what can be accomplished on a TV show with CG, Swamp Thing is a character that could be INCREDIBLY hard to pull off believably in a suit.

Do you think there’s any godly way for it to look good in a suit? Let us know down below!
