NYCC 2017, The CW and DC Comics TV Spoilers follow.
Despite the Constantine live action series onlu lasting 15 episodes on NBC a few years ago, actor Matt Ryan as John Constantine has been a fan favorite popping up in CW Arrow and even in the animated Justice League Dark Blu-Ray. Now he’s back again announced at New York Comic Con 2017 (NYCC 2017)!
First for a new CW Seed animated series plus a visit with DC’s Legends of Tomorrow
Here is what DC and the CW had to say about new animated series.
John Constantine … a seasoned demon hunter and master of the occult. Armed with an arcane knowledge of the dark arts and a wicked wit, he fights the good fight. With his soul already damned to hell, he’ll do whatever it takes to protect the innocent. With the balance of good and evil on the line, Constantine uses his skills to face the supernatural terrors that threaten our world and send them back where they belong. After that, who knows… maybe there’s hope for him and his soul after all.
Here is what they also had to say about his DC’s Legends of Tomorrow visit.
Having Matt Ryan reprise his iconic — dare we say legendary — role of John Constantine on Legends is something that [executive producer] Marc [Guggenheim] and I have been working toward since season one, and now the stars have finally aligned,” executive producer Phil Klemmer tells The Hollywood Reporter. “While we are working to finish our 2017 Arrow-verse crossover, which is no joke the most ambitious bit of network TV that four shows have ever had the audacity and insanity to endeavor, we were looking for a way to make an equally exciting 2018 return. That’s how we came up with Matt Ryan.”
