The upcoming streaming service, DC Universe will be releasing’Swamp Thing’. This series will be based on the work of Alan Moore. The good thing about using the streaming service is boundaries can be pushed. Pushing these boundaries allows for a Hard-R rating. Swamp Thing writer Gary Dauberman states that the DC Univers has urged him to be creative.
“This is one, when you talked earlier about the rating for The Nun, we always set out to make Swamp Thing as hard R as we could and go graphic with the violence, with the adult themes and make it as scary as possible,” Dauberman said. “Because we’re doing it through the DC streaming service, they really pushed us, although they didn’t have to push hard, for us to go as extreme as we could. We really took our inspiration from the Alan Moore run in Swamp Thing, this landmark I think run. Fans of that series will know it gets pretty weird and extreme and scary. We really wanted to live up to that standard that Moore set up back in the ‘80s.”
