‘Swamp Thing’ Casts Will Patton For Role

Swamp Thing - DC Comics News

News is picking up on the upcoming DC Universe original series Swamp Thing. After last week’s announcement that Virginia Madsen would be joining the cast as Maria Sunderland, the latest news reveals the casting choice for her husband, Avery Sunderland.

Comic fans will know that Avery Sunderland is the evil CEO of Sunderland Corporation who at one time even captured Swamp Thing.

None other than Will Patton of Armageddon and Gone in Sixty Seconds fame has been cast as the wicked villain.

Here is the official description of Patton’s character:

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.

Swamp Thing is set to premiere in 2019 on the new DC Universe streaming service.

Hi, I'm Cameron Tevis and I've been a comic book, anime and film fan my entire life. While I like Marvel and anime my true love is DC Comics. My father, who was a fan himself, introduced me at a very young age to the amazing characters in DC (especially Hal Jordan Green Lantern). I think it's a fantastic time to be a comic book fan and I'm happy I get to write about the company that I love so much. Besides being a DC fan, I am a designer and I recently started a comic book series of my own called Event Cycle 6 published through Aporian Comics. I recently wrote and directed a short film "The Misadventures of Harley Quinn". And most importantly I am now a father to my beautiful daughter Arya Jade!
