Now it looks like Barbeau may be headed for a reunion with her old green friend in the upcoming DCU streaming series. The actress tweeted last week:

Series executive producer James Wan then confirmed the news via his own tweet:

The plot twist here is that Barbeau’s original tweet has since vanished. We have to assume she’s still on board — especially given the Wan response — but can only speculate as to the why. Maybe not all the details of her deal or appearance had been finalized? Maybe the official announcement was supposed to happen at a later date?

Swamp Thing debuts May 10.

From alternating Batman & Green Lantern as childhood Halloween costumes, to getting punched in my adolescent heart by Love & Rockets, to playing convention sidekick to the legendary Len Wein, the comics medium and characters feel like a part of my DNA.
