Re: Swamp Thing (DC Universe Series)

I really don't want to have to pay for a WB streaming service when all I'm interested in is their DC content �� More then ten bucks is a "fuck off" from me. Out of all the series, I can see Titans continuing on because it was the most watched and apparently least expensive to produce.

The wings are relatively new; definitely after Jeepers Creepers. I believe they first appeared in Swamp Thing #7 from the New 52 series.

As you all know by now, DC Universe’s ‘Swamp Thing’ series has been cancelled. Amid varying accusations of what went down behind the scenes, from tax paperwork errors to a colossal budget, The GWW spoke to several people close to production on the series about what actually happened.

When WarnerMedia and AT&T first saw footage from the series, they were not pleased. Certain executives found that they did not care for the direction of the show enough to continue supporting its sizable budget (around $80 million), and decided in March to stop production early. Production halted just after filming was completed on episode ten of the series. Around mid-April, reshoots on episodes two, four, seven, and ten. A new ending was written for the season (now series) finale, and production wrapped for good on May 1st.

Initially, crew members were told to start tearing down sets on May 2nd. However, things changed on April 22nd, when it was announced sets were to stay up for the time being. The reason? Different networks, including HBO and The CW (who save since passed on the series), were looking at picking it up for a second season, while WarnerMedia and AT&T were still mulling over their options. It was ultimately the group effort of executive producers James Wan, Gary Dauberman, and Mark Verheiden, and DC themselves, that were pushing Warner Bros. to reconsider the cancellation. They decided to wait until mid-June to make a final decision. But, Warners decided to pull the plug early last week: this was expected but it is unknown why they did it so early. The swamp set is currently being taken down in North Carolina.

Sources also stress that the new leadership at WarnerMedia are very keen on doing more shows in the formulaic style of The CW’s ‘Arrow’ and ‘The Flash,’ and less shows like ‘Doom Patrol’ and ‘Swamp Thing.’ One source even says that Len Wiseman (‘Underworld,’ ‘Live Free or Die Hard’) was hired as director to make the show seem like more of a procedural. This tactic wound up backfiring as Wiseman put his own horror spin on the series, which execs were very displeased with. Disney’s upcoming streaming service is said to have spooked WarnerMedia as well.

One more funny tidbit, the producers wanted actress Crystal Reed, who plays Abby Arcane, to dye her hair blonde to be more in line with the comics, and she told them no. The day the cancellation was announced, she made an Instagram post showing off her new blonde hair with the caption “the rebellion,” as a way to give one last middle finger to the studio.

Re: Swamp Thing (DC Universe Series)

Shows like Swamp Thing and Doom Patrol are going to be worth investing in. I'm unsure why execs think this formulaic way of doing things will mean long term success.

Marvel/Disney is going to be putting out standard hero shows, so the best thing is to make your own which are different.

Swamp Thing being horror is smart, Horror fans are some of the most loyal viewers, not to mention a solid moneymaker.

Doom Patrol is different enough to make critics talk about it which means more eyes on your product.

Seriously, it's dumb to go basic bitch against Disney, DC cannot get their damn ducks in a row.

...One source close to the production told Business Insider that the show had a possible three-season arc, and the feeling on set was that it could have gone past that if it was a hit, with characters spinning off into their own shows. The source used the specific example of a potential "Justice League Dark" team-up series...
We could have had Justice League Dark episodes?!



From this article and others, DC was completely blindsided by Warner and ATT. This is a major reason DC has had so much trouble since they launched the DCEU and DC Streaming. WB has no respect for them. It's not like Marvel and Disney where Disney, in most cases, defers to them. It's pretty much always been this way. Executives come and go, but WB interferes with DC no matter what.

I'm not even an horror fan, but the first two episodes of this show were very good, in my opinion.

It's beyond idiotic to see this show cancelled. In the meantime, shitfests like Supergirl and the Flash go on and on with their mind-numbingly boring, utterly predictable development that makes you feel like each season and episode is all the same.

It's the same mistake all over again. Instead of taking a risk with something different, they'll stay in the comfort zone and produce stuff that will never give them the edge.

Episode 3 was lit! The Rot being used in this, is amazing, and super nasty and freaky.

Re: Swamp Thing (DC Universe Series)

Another amazing episode, and I've been simultaneously watching this and re-reading Scott Snyder's Swamp Thing run.
