Matt Ryan To Star In NBC’s Upcoming Constantine TV Series


For a while now, fans have patiently waited for an update on NBC’s Constantine TV Series. Fans of the Hellblazer comics have followed John Constantine for years, and when news of a TV show hit, hopes began to be raised.

Now we have our leading man Matt Ryan, who (true to the character) is from the UK. The reveal comes from Deadline, which writes:

John Constantine is described as a working-class Londoner with rakish good looks, scruffy blond hair, deadpan humor, and signature trench coat, who has been studying the dark arts since he was a teenager. When the daughter of a late friend is targeted by demons, Constantine steps in to save her.

The pilot will be written by The Mentalist executive producer Daniel Cerone from a story he co-penned with David S. Goyer, who currently sits as the ringmaster for DC adaptations who has co-penned The Dark Knight, The Dark Knight Rises, Batman Begins, Man Of Steel and the upcoming Batman vs. Superman.
