DC’s Swamp Thing has found its Alec Holland in Andy Bean. He will play the “human” identity of Swamp Thing, while Derek Mears will play the actual Swamp Thing; in a full suit and everything.
Swamp Thing follows Abby Arcane (Crystal 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.
Andy Bean will next be seen in It: Chapter 2, where he plays the role of Stanley Uris. He has previously starred in the series Power and 2018’s Here and Now.
I’m excited to see Swamp Thing on-screen, because he’s not been seen since 1989’s The Return of Swamp Thing. The low-budget sequel followed 1982’s Swamp Thing, one of the less-celebrated films of the late, great Wes Craven.
