Constantine fans got another return to form with news that Matt Ryan would reprise his NBC role for the upcoming Justice League Dark, but that was only a trial run. The demon-fighting detective (and his live-action voice) will return as an animated CW Seed series, the first photo of which is already here!
The first installments of Cartoon Network’s new Justice League Action will bow as early as this Friday, and the latest look at our “Shazam Slam” beginnings trot out even more DC favorites. Arrow meets Constantine yet again in a new clip, along with Swamp Thing, Wonder Woman and more.
With Doug Liman recently signing on to helm Guillermo del Toro’s long-developing Dark Universe project, it shouldn’t be much longer now before supernatural forces invade the live-action DC movie universe. Until then, the animated DCU is a step ahead with Justice League Dark, unveiling the first official trailer for their latest R-rated feature — hopefully it’ll be a bit less controversial than The Killing Joke.
A few months ago, the first featurette for the upcoming DC animated movie Justice League Dark hit the internet. And while the film has yet to receive a release date for home video — or its inevitable “one night only” theatrical showing as part of a Fathom Events promotion — it appears that the first official group shot of the Justice League Dark superheroes has finally found its away online for your viewing pleasure, courtesy of iO9.
It doesn’t appear as if Constantine will be returning to The CW just yet (though Matt Ryan has his own Justice League to attend to), so where best to get your fix of the chain-smoking demon-detective? NBC’s Constantine will officially hit Blu-ray in October, after time spent on CW Seed.
The Arrow-verse may feel a bit busier than usual this year, to add both Supergirl and a host of other DC heroes and villains to the ranks. Unfortunately, that crowded feeling might push Matt Ryan’s John Constantine to the fringe, as Arrow bosses have no plans to return the character in any capacity just yet.
Arrow showrunners made clear that Matt Ryan’s crossover return to the role of Constantine was a one-off for Season 4, but in lieu of seeing the actor’s take once again, we can at least hear it in the animated Justice League Dark. A new featurette goes behind-the-scenes of the long-awaited adaptation, including Ryan’s return as the chain-smoking demon-fighter.
