“The show in general, the one thing that I’m really happy about is the fact that not once have I heard the word superhero,” he said. “I mean he is a superhero in a sense, but what they’re looking for in the show is that dark horror edge, which made me very excited because that separates us from all the other superhero shows that are out there.”

“It’s an origin story of acceptance and growth as the character Alec Holland is trying to figure out what he’s become as this swamp creature.” Derek Mears continued. “And we all related to that with our own personal humanity. We have those days where we’re like, ‘What’s the point? Who am I?’ And so, it delves into those more adult themes of what that is, and also, falling down the dark well of madness when we start getting existential and dealing with our own personal existential crises, as also we see them through the Alec Holland character.”

Episode one of Swamp Thing premieres on DC Universe on May 31st.
