Across two feature films and a cable series, live-action Swamp Thing adaptations have each time failed in one regard: showing us the grotesque green dick fans always assumed Swamp Thing definitely had. But according to Gary Dauberman, co-writer of the DC Universe streaming service’s upcoming Swamp Thing series, we may yet get that hardcore rotting-log-in-moss action we’ve long imagined in our most erotic nightmares.
Speaking to /Film, Dauberman—whose The Nun opened well beyond expectations over the weekend—said, “We always set out to make Swamp Thing as hard R as we could and go graphic with the violence, with the adult themes and make it as scary as possible.” No doubt envisioning the horrifically engorged vines throbbing through Swamp Thing’s swamp thing, he continued: “It’s going to look amazing, and less of the ‘man in suit’ that you’ve seen in the movie and the other TV show [but] there is a physical costume, yes.”
Though there’s not yet a photo of this costume, we can only assume it means the lead will wear an awful little olive sheath they pump with swamp water when he needs to fuck a frog or whatever.
