Swamp Thing - Virginia Madsen Joins Cast as Maria Sunderland in DC Universe Series



Virginia Madsen (Witches of East End, American Gothic, Designated Survivor) has joined the cast of DC Universe's upcoming Swamp Thing series per Deadline. Madsen will take on the key series regular role of Maria Sunderland.

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.

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.

Madsen will play Maria Sunderland, who traded in her privileged upbringing for the swamps of Marais when she married local business magnate Avery Sunderland (not yet cast), but Avery's life-time obsession with the swamp has driven a wedge between him and Maria. Her poised existence is shaken further when the return of Abby Arcane reawakens a deep grief over the loss of Maria’s daughter, Shawna, drawing her into the dark supernatural mysteries emerging from the swamp.
