DC Comics has announced that actor Will Patton has been cast in its upcoming live-action Swamp Thing series. Patton will play “Avery Sunderland”, the husband of “Maria Sunderland” which, as we reported yesterday, is played by Virginia Madsen.
Patton joins Madsen, Jeryl Prescott as “Madame Xanadu”, Jennifer Beals as “Sheriff Lucilia Cable”, Crystal Reed as “Abby Arcane”, and Maria Sten as “Liz Tremayne”. Despite the slew of casting announcements, the title role remains unknown, so stay tuned as more details emerge!
Swamp Thing is expected to premiere sometime next Summer exclusively on the DC Universe subscription streaming service.
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.
