NBC's CONSTANTINE Described As Dark, Witty And Scary
"There is dark, interesting stuff in [the Constantine pilot], but it’s also got some witty banter. It’s a fun tone, although the supernatural stuff is scary." NBC's chairman also touched on the possibility of the Hellblazer show crossing over with The CW and Fox DC Comics programs.
Here's NBC chairman Robert Greenblatt on the network's Constantine tv series that was recently ordered to pilot [via IGN]. Said Greenblatt, "I don’t know the DC comic very well, but there is dark, interesting stuff in it, but it’s also got some witty banter. It’s a fun tone, although the supernatural stuff is scary." And on the ever-present question of crossover potential with the other DC shows (Arrow and Flash on CW, Gotham on Fox), Greenblatt would only say, "Cross-network is really hard. It’s hard enough to do it within your network. I think let us see how the pilot goes before we answer that question!” David Goyer (Batman vs Superman) and Daniel Cerone (Dexter, The Mentalist) are executive producing the project for NBC. Stay tuned to find out if Constantine gets a full season order or ends up like the peacock network's last DC Comics project (Wonder Woman) which never made it past the pilot stage.
