Henderson Wade (Riverdale, Extant) has joined the cast of DC Universe's upcoming Swamp Thing series per Deadline. Wade will take on the series regular role of Matt Cable.

Swamp Thing follows Abby Arcane (Reed) as she investigates what seems to be a deadly swamp-born virus in a small town in Louisiana but soon discovers that the swamp holds mystical and terrifying secrets. When unexplainable and chilling horrors emerge from the murky marsh, no one is safe.

Matt is described as a Louisiana lawman who finds himself in dire straits when supernatural evil threatens the town he's sworn to protect in the new take on the DC character per Deadline.

Deadline notes that whilst Matt Cable was first featured as a federal agent in the DC Comic, assigned to protect scientist Alec Holland (who ultimately failed his mission and blamed Swamp Thing for Holland's demise), in the DC series Cable's character will be "reframed". It's noted Abby Arcane (Reed) has a history with the Matt Cable, the son of Sheriff Lucilla Cable (Jennifer Beals), she was his childhood crush but it remains to be seen if this will transfer into the live-action adaptation.

The drama based on DC characters hails from James Wan in association with Warner Bros. Television. The live-action drama will debut on the streaming service in 2019. Mark Verheiden and Gary Dauberman will pen the script with Wan, Verheiden, Dauberman, Michael Clear, and Wiseman executive producing the live-action series. Len Wiseman (Sleepy Hollow) is set to direct.
