If you are a DC fan, you surely know the green guy from the comics who loves trees. And yes, you guessed it right, It’s none other than Swamp Thing. If you are excited to see him teaming up with our favorite DC heroes, here is some excellent news for you.
DC’s Legends of Tomorrow executive producer Marc Guggenheim teased the possibility of Swamp Thing appearing on the show.
No swamp thing in the crisis
Despite several rumors and expectations, Swamp Thing didn’t appear in “Crisis on Infinite Earths.” The show was aired in December last year. But we can expect the character to appear anytime in the Arrowverse as the CW recently has acquired broadcast rights to the Swamp thing series.
Marc Guggenheim spoke to CBR about the possibility of the character appearing on Legends of Tomorrow. During the interview, Guggenheim said that he tried very hard to get Swamp Thing in ‘Crisis on Infinite Earths‘ and added that it’s a wasted opportunity not to have Constantine and Swamp thing together.
Previously, Guggenheim revealed in an interview that he had initially included Swamp Thing in the “Crisis” crossover.
Speaking of which, he told CBR but that he wasn’t able to include him for a variety of different reasons. He even added that CW getting the broadcast rights to Swamp Thing has nothing to do with the character not appearing in ‘crisis.’
He even stated that if he was asked the inclusion before they had done 90% of the things on the Arrowverse shows, he would have told it wasn’t going to happen, teasing the possibility.
Marc hasn’t ruled out or confirmed the chances of the possible appearance of Swamp thing. Well, it seems, at the time of writing Legends of Tomorrow they might not have any plans to include the
Protector of the Green. However, the EP did seem optimistic about the chance of it happening at some point.
The Cancelled Show
Swamp Thing was announced as one of the DC universe’s original series after Titans and Doom Patrol.
The show starred Crystal Reed as Abigail Arcane, Virginia Madsen as Maria Sunderland, Andy Bean as Alec Holland, Derek Mears as Swamp Thing.
The show was abruptly canceled a week after its launch on the streaming service due to budget concerns. It is the same reason behind the reduction of the show’s premiere season’s episodes from 13 to 10.
The entire series will now debut on the CW this fall and will be available on DC Universe.
