Xanadu is a centuries-old magician who reluctantly joins the battle against dark forces menacing a small Louisiana town. The character debuted in Doorway to Nightmare #1 way back in 1978, but unlike Swamp Thing, this will be her first live action appearance.

Swamp Thing’s pilot episode premieres on the DC Universe streaming service sometime in 2019
