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.
Yesterday, NBC gave us our first look at the new Constantine series heading to the airwaves this fall. Clocking in at around three minutes, this just-released trailer suggests that we can expect Constantine to be bleak, subversive and horrifying.
In other words, absolutely perfect. Here’s the trailer:
Mere moments after The CW announced that The Flash and iZombie have been picked up for series, NBC has announced that the fourth DC Entertainment series under consideration has also been given a green light.
That’s right, John Constantine is getting a TV show.
Now that’s how you rock a trench.
With production underway on Constantine, NBC’s new pilot from executive producers Daniel Cerone & David S. Goyer and director Neil Marshall, NBC, Warner Bros. Television and DC Entertainment have released the first image of series star Matt Ryan in character as John Constantine.
If you caught Blair Herter’s conversation with Geoff Johns in this morning’s new episode of “DC All Access” (or if you’ve been following the entertainment news over the past few months), you know that DC Entertainment currently has five television shows in development. While some of them are based on well-known DC characters, a few focus on characters that are a bit more obscure. However, they all have their roots in serialized comics.
John Constantine: chain-smoker, wise-cracker, all around jerk—and the one person who would do anything, sacrifice anyone, to save the world from evil.
