SWAMP THING Writer Gary Dauberman Says The Creature Will Have A Physical Suit; Teases A Hard R Rating

Following some recent casting announcements, writer Gary Dauberman has shed some more light on Swamp Thing, revealing new details on the character's design and the series' R-rating. More past the jump...

Titans is the only live-action DC Universe series to release official footage, and thanks to a few set photos, we got a great look at a few of the characters in Doom Patrol. However, with filming not set to begin until the fall, we've yet to see anything from Swamp Thing, official or otherwise.

Fortunately, 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 onscreen: "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."

In short, it definitely sounds like the series is aiming for a tone and style that's similar to the comics, which will undoubtedly make fans even more excited for the DC Universe project.
