Matt Ryan Could Potentially Star In A New Constantine TV Show

Published

DC/Vertigo’s foul-mouthed but loveable magician has very bad luck. Both in the realities of his stories and in the many attempts to adapt him to screen. From the mediocre film, the good TV, and even the fantastic animated films, he seems to never be able to stick a landing. But his luck may be turning around in the near future.

Matt Ryan Shines As Constantine

While the film staring Keanu Reeves failed on many levels, the TV show from a few years ago didn’t. One of the best aspects of the short-lived series on NBC was the casting of Matt Ryan. A genuine comic book fan himself, he imbued the rough edges of Constantine with just the right amount of likeability.

DC clearly agrees with the consensus as Matt Ryan has become the literal face of the character despite the cancellation of his show. Going on to voice the character in cartoons such as Justice League Action and guest-starring in Legends of Tomorrow. He’s even provided the voice for the amazing animated adaptation of Hellblazer: All His Engines in Constantine: City of Demons.

DC Universe Streaming Service Provides A New Opportunity

The streaming service known as DC Universe has provided us with two shows so far, with many more in development. Due to not being limited by the sensors on traditional television, they are allowed to move into R-rated territories in these shows. If you have ever read a Hellblazer comic then you know that Constantine’s entire shtick is that he is R-rated.

DC not to long ago announced a Swamp Thing TV show. John Constantine actually made his first appearance in the pages of Swamp Thing as a joke about the singer Sting. One can only hope that he will cameo in this show.

Other Possibilities

Matt Ryan’s guest appearances on Legends of Tomorrow have been seen as great. The CW’s onslaught of DC TV shows has not stopped for nearly eight years at this point and show no signs of stopping. More are on the way, including Batwoman, but they have recently axed the one that started it all.

Arrow has had mixed reaction over the course of its eight-year run. But it did ignite an entire shared universe for DC on TV, which was a great idea. Let’s hope the John Constantine is called in to replace Arrow‘s missing slot in the DC quiver.
