‘Constantine’ TV Show Coming From ‘The Dark Knight’ Writer David S. Goyer

Constantine

With the second season of Arrow launching on The CW next week, as well as plans for an upcoming spin-off of that show featuring The Flash, AND plans for a show on Fox that will focus on Batman’s Commissioner Gordon, there are a ton of DC Comics properties being put onto the small screen. We can add one more with the announced plans, courtesy of Deadline.com, for an upcoming series based on the adventures of DC’s magical confidence man John Constantine.

The series is set to be written and executive produced by Daniel Cerone (The Mentalist) and David S. Goyer, co-writer of all of the recent DC movies like The Dark Knight and Man of Steel.

If you’re not familiar with Constantine’s adventures in the comic back you may remember him from the 2005 Keanu Reeves film version titled Constantine, and the character may soon be appearing in the Guillermo del Toro Justice League Dark movie, so one wonders if this is the right time to launch a TV series featuring the character.

On the other hand, Constantine is well suited for a TV series, being able to be inserted into any number of vaguely magical/horror/fantasy stories. The big fear for fans of the character though will be another American-ization of the classically British character. Fans have already seen that once before and I don’t think many of them were all too happy. It would be cool to see a British actor in a largely British setting for the series, and we’ve seen at least half of that work recently with CBS’s Elementary. Hopefully this all works out and we get another cool comic book TV series in the next year or so.

    Hello has any body thought about Dan Stevens from Downton Abby. He is britsh,looks like him, and besides he is not doing anything

  • Michael Bristow

    ooh good choice! I dont watch Downton but he does look quite similar. I’d be nice to have a Liverpudlian but I could settle with just a northern British person. Me perhaps?
