John Constantine reveal

Warner Brothers is setting themselves up to have a big Fall TV season with pilots in the works for three new shows: The Flash, Gotham, and Constantine. We’ve already had a few reveals this week on The Flash and Gotham, and now we get the first official look at actor Matt Ryan in his role of John Constantine for the upcoming NBC show.

Check out the full photo of Ryan as Constantine here below.

Constantine follows the escapades of John Constantine, an occultist and con-man who occasionally helps people against demons and other supernatural forces. Judging from this image, it looks like the producers of the show, Daniel Cerone (The Mentalist) and David S. Goyer (The Dark Knight) and director Neil Marshall (Game of Thrones) have found an actor who at the very least looks like his comic book counterpart.

As a British character, it feels like the show’s creators have gotten off to a good start by casting Welsh actor Matt Ryan. Just from this image, you get the feeling that Ryan has captured the inherent cockiness of Constantine. I know there are a lot of fans who were put off when Keanu Reeves played the character in the film version of Constantine, but it seems from this picture that the showrunners are trying to hew closer to the original look of the character.

What do you think about this? If you’re a fan of the character, I think this will at least put your mind slightly at ease that the NBC series will feel like the comics. We’ll still have to see what Matt Ryan looks like in motion, and who knows if the pilot will actually get picked up as a series. It does look like they’re on the right track though.
