Swamp Thing DCU Fan Art

An artist on Instagram who goes by the handle of @Horric.Heroics created a new design showing how Swamp Thing could look in the DCU. In the fan art, we Swap Thing in his element, and it seems suitable for what's going on in Gunn's DC Universe. While we don't know how Swamp Thing could look in the DCU, this is certainly a good representation. You can check out the fan art below.

James Mangold on his Upcoming Swamp Thing Movie

"Basically, the second I heard DC was going through some leadership convulsion and James was taking over, I just saw it as an opportunity to throw my hat down in the most -- I mean I just called them and I said, 'In all the stuff you're doing, if the idea of me making a gothic horror film, origin story of Swamp Thing fits in, tell me,'" Mangold recently revealed. "It's no different speech than anyone else gets with me; I don't have any agenda for a universe, I'm not building towards someone joining in some future. Have at it, but I'd just be interested in telling, I've always been interested in doing a version of Frankenstein, basically, and, yet, I feel, 'It's alive!' has been done enough, but Swamp Thing always occurred to me as this wonderful version of a Frankenstein story, much in the way one of my favorite pop films of growing up, RoboCop, the original one. This guy who just wakes up and he's been turned into, he finds he's become this machine, was also something I was fascinated with with Logan, obviously."
