While Swamp Thing may have been out of the spotlight for decades, the character was once incredibly popular following both a live-action film and a series of TV shows.

The DC Entertainment streamer, to be called DC Universe, has a number of originals on its slate including Titans, Harley Quinn and Young Justice: Outsiders, but recent order Metropolis will now be redeveloped.

Swamp Thing is planned for a 2019 launch. It's oddly similar to the DC Extended Universe, which is the unofficial title for the Warner Bros. DC is launching a digital service later this year, now officially titled DC Universe, and is bulking up its library.

For those who are not familiar with Swamp Thing, he is humanoid or monster created by Len Wein and artist Bernie Wrightson. One exciting new show that was announced as well was that of a new Swamp Thing series, to be produced by Aquaman director James Wan. If the script is well-received, the project will then be picked up straight to series.

The project comes from Atomic Monster in association with Warner Bros. Rob Hackett will co-exec produce, while Verheiden and Dauberman will also exec produce.

When CDC researcher Abby Arcane returns to her childhood home of Houma, Louisiana, in order to investigate a deadly swamp-borne virus, she develops a surprising bond with scientist Alec Holland - only to have him tragically taken from her.

First up is Titans, the first live-action TV show starring Robin (Brenton Thwaites), Starfire (Anna Diop), Raven (Teagan Croft) and Beast Boy (Ryan Potter). A USA Network series aired from 1990 through 1993 with a cast that included Mark Lindsay Chapman. Previously, the comic book version of the character has inspired two movies Swamp Thing (1982) and The Return of Swamp Thing (1989). In the action-packed series, Dick Grayson emerges from the shadows to become the leader of a fearless band of new heroes, including Starfire, Raven and many others.
