Gunn previously said of the film project: “And then, the last film we want to mention is Swamp Thing. Because we want to emphasize that these stories, although they are interconnected, are not all totally the same. So each filmmaking group brings their own aesthetic to these films.

Then investigate the dark origins of the swamp thing So totally very different from Superman or Batman or Robin etc. It has also been explained that the character will interact with traditional DC characters as well.
