It's been no secret that DC Universe has been getting a Swamp Thing Show for it's streaming service. So far Titans has been their flagship series, but Swamp Thing could take the top tier as they add top tier actors such as Will Patton.
Some of you may recall Patton from Big Hollywood blockbuster such as Armageddon, Punisher, and the Postman. It may please folks to know that he also has had an extensive career in television as well. It should be very interesting to see how Will Patton will bring this villainous character to life.
Here's the rundown from DC ...
General Avery Sunderland, as longtime Swamp Thing fans will recall, was the wicked CEO of the Sunderland Corporation who captured Swampie, when he was thought dead, with the intent to dissect him and profit from the chemicals in his body -- in the classic The Saga of the Swamp Thing #21, "The Anatomy Lesson" (written by Alan Moore with art by Steve Bissette and John Totleben, read it here).
"As its most prominent businessman, Avery Sunderland 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."
