DC’s Swamp Thing has reportedly cast RJ Cyler in an as-yet-undisclosed, guest-starring role in its first season. Cyler has numerous credits to his name, including Me and Earl and The Dying Girl and Black Lightning. However, he is probably best known for his role as the Blue Ranger in the recent big-screen Power Rangers reboot.
Going officially into production back in November, Swamp Thing will join Titans and its quirkier sister series Doom Patrol on DC’s streaming service. However, the live-action adaptation will have no connection to the other DC Universe shows, including Stargirl, which is also in development. Though the series will be executive produced by James Wan (Aquaman), Len Wiseman will be directing the pilot episode.
Wiseman recently shared a behind the scenes sneak peek, giving fans a glimpse at the show’s sets and general aesthetic. The core cast has been in place for months now, with Crystal Reed set to play Abby Arcane, and Reed will be joined by Sharknado‘s Ian Ziering, Jessica Beals, Andy Bean, and Matt Cable. Will Patton and Kevin Durand are also on board, as comic book villains Avery Sunderland and Jason Woodrue (aka Floronic Man), respectively.
