Share on Reddit

Will Patton (Halloween, Falling Skies, The Good Wife) has joined the cast of DC Universe's upcoming Swamp Thing series per Deadline. Patton will take on a lead role as Avery Sunderland, the husband of Virginia Madsen's character, 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.

As its most prominent businessman, Avery Sunderland (Patton) serves as the de facto patriarch of his Louisiana hometown, always giving back to the community. His benevolent veneer, however, masks a ruthless determination to harness the power of the swamp for profit.


Patton joins previously announced cast members Crystal Reed, Maria Sten, Jennifer Beals, Jeryl Prescott, Derek Mears and Virginia Madsen in the live-action series set to debut in 2019.
