Raise Hell TONIGHT with Constantine!
Hey, have you got plans for tonight? You do now, and they involve a hot Englishman performing exorcisms. Tonight at 10 o’clock on NBC (or Global for the Canadian Hellblazers out there), Constantine will officially come on the air! Check out the preview of the show above.
Based on the legendary Hellblazer comic series, this show is another installment in DC Entertainment’s wave of bringing their characters to the small screen for our viewing pleasure, along with Arrow, The Flash and Gotham. The urban-fantasy/horror series will follow John’s paranormal exploits with a mix of classic stories and characters from the source material with some new ideas mixed in to keep old and new fans alike on their toes.
The casting is, thank God, much more loyal to the source material compared to the nightmare that was the 2005 film with Keanu Reeves and Actual Cannibal Shia LaBeouf. Playing the title character for TV is dreamy Welsh actor Matt Ryan with John’s best friend Chas Chandler played by Charles Halford, coming from a supporting role on True Detective.
Be sure to check out the show tonight and tell us what you think. And if you like it, be sure to read up on some of John’s adventures with comiXology’s Constantine sale!
