Matt Ryan’s rendition of the character John Constantine has garnered quite the following since his debut in the short-lived Constantine show on NBC. He even reprised the role on an episode of Arrow and voiced the character in the Justice League Dark animated film. Just yesterday we reported the possibility of Ryan making a comeback in Legends of Tomorrow and today it’s been confirmed! THR caught up with executive producer, Phil Klemmer on the matter and here’s what he had to say:
“As for the character of Constantine, we knew that an alienated, chain-smoking, bisexual, world-weary demonologist would feel right at home among our Legends. His appearance in episode 310 will involve the following: a revisiting of Arrow season four and the events following that season’s finale episode; a confrontation with this season’s Big Bad on Legends, the name we’ve only heard whispered until now, Mallus. [There will be] some hot sex, something that has been in short supply on the Waverider thus far in season three. and Damien Darhk (Neil McDonough), because how can you do an episode about dark magic and not have Damien Darhk? More than anything, the episode promises to be scary as you know what tonally, it’s The Exorcist meets One Flew Over The Cuckoo’s Nest. Demonic possession in a mental institution, what’s not to love?”
It’s always lit to see a beloved character get the on-screen treatment they deserve, especially for a fan-favorite character like Constantine. Who knows, maybe The CW will produce a Constantine series. What do you guys think?
Be sure to catch Legends of Tomorrow‘s 3rd season premiere tomorrow on The CW!
