NBC's take on the DC Comics line 'Hellblazer' isn't pulling any punches when it comes to the creepy stuff -- this is a television series about demons, after all -- and they're out in force in this new trailer for the 'Constantine,' straight out of this week's steadily winding down Comic-Con. The new series follows demon hunter/con guy (totally normal vocation) John Constantine (Matt Ryan) as he, well, cons people and fights demons. It's not very lucrative, but it's definitely busy.
Mid yesterday NBC provided us with a first look at its forthcoming 'Constantine' series with a brand-new trailer (as well as its other questionable fall offerings), but let's go a little deeper, shall we? Meet the DC Comics demon-fighting detective in our first official premiere clip from NBC's 'Constantine,' along with a few new photos of the cast!
It's been a good day for TV comic adaptations. Following The CW's official orders of 'The Flash' and 'iZombie,' Warner Bros. is adding another to the plate. NBC's 'Constantine' has officially been given the series green light, adapting the supernatural detective to live action for a second incarnation.
NBC's forthcoming 'Constantine' adaptation has piqued fan interest by adapting a more faithful version of DC's 'Hellblazer' than Keanu Reeves' 2005 cinematic incarnation, and the first images of 'Criminal Minds' vet Matt Ryan in character as the DC demon fighter should allay a number of concerns. As part of Slates for Sarah, check out the first look at NBC's new 'Constantine'!
Normally we'd expect Friday nights reserved for the likes of such run-off news as 'Space Jam 2,' but it seems NBC doesn't mind keeping its new 'Constantine' in the dark, so to speak. Welsh actor Matt Ryan has landed the title role in David Goyer's DC pilot for NBC, but what else have we learned about the demon fighting detective?
