Rakish, cunning and possessing a tie to the supernatural world that’s brought them nothing but pain. Sound familiar? Yes, we could be talking about John Constantine, the “hero” of the upcoming NBC series Constantine and the DC and Vertigo comics from which it draws its inspiration. But we could just as easily be referring to Mary “Zed” Martin, the vision-prone artist embodied on the show by actress Angélica Celaya.
As announced earlier today on USA Today, actor Michael James Shaw will be joining the cast of NBC's Constantine in the recurring guest role of Papa Midnite.
Time to start marking your calendar, Comic-Con attendees! Earlier this week, we announced a massive joint panel with Warner Bros. Television on Saturday night that will highlight the new DC shows hitting the airwaves this fall. Well, today we found out a lot more as WBTV announced their entire slate of Comic-Con panels, including standalone panels for Arrow, Constantine, iZOMBIE and Teen Titans Go!, as well as the time and location for the Saturday panel.
This week on DC All Access, we go to Infinity and Beyond!
Oh, and Constantine. We go there too. And to the world of Vertigo Comics to introduce a brand new series. And of course we spend plenty of time around the DC Comics office, so really, our LEGO Batman 3: Beyond Gotham segment and our Infinity Man and the Forever People bit are just the surface of what’s shaping up to be our most exciting episode yet!
