Deadman

Deadman Deadman (Boston Brand) is a fictional character, a comic book superhero in the DC Comics universe. He first appeared in Strange Adventures #205 (October 1967), and was created by Arnold Drake and Carmine Infantino. Despite a few rumors, there are no Deadman movies officially on the slate as of 2012.
Director Guillermo del Toro speaks on using Matt Ryan, star of NBC's Constantine as the Constantine in his Justice League Dark film. "..if we see the tv series and we can mesh with it or cast the same actor depending on where the movie is going, I would be happy to consider that."
With Smallville's series finale earlier this year it was reported that The CW was looking for another DC character to take its place. Sources say that Deadman is next in line.
