SDCC '14: New Trailer For CONSTANTINE; 'Papa Midnite' And More Confirmed For Season One

A new trailer has been released for Constantine, and it features more footage from the pilot episode and our first look at future instalments too. Meanwhile, a number of well-known Hellblazer characters have been confirmed for an appearance during the first season...

There's some great new footage featured in the latest trailer for Constantine, though a lot of it might be familiar if you managed to get your hands on a copy of the recently leaked pilot episode. However, we also get to see some scenes here which are NOT from that first instalment, so it's well worth watching either way. In related news, David S. Goyer told IGN TV that Papa Midnite and the Newcastle Crew will both be making their way into this season at some point, and they're not the only familiar faces who will be popping up. We know Zed is coming, while The Spectre has been heavily hinted at a number of times in recent interviews. So, what about Zatanna and other members of the Justice League Dark? "I'm sure many of you saw the Doctor Fate helmet [in the pilot]," Goyer teased, "and that was a clear indicator of our intentions." Who would you guys most like to see in Constantine? Sound off with your thoughts in the usual place!

Can't believe they stopped him being a smoker, but still, this looks awesome.

"We have access to the occult corner of the DC universe" - David S. Goyer on Constantine

This show sounds awesome so far.
Zatanna is a must see. Recurring role then regular for season 2!

Kids creep me out. I don't mind them getting hurt.

I cannot wait for this show, I am a huge Hellblazer nerd, Seriously how good has SDCC been this weekend? there is just so much epic TV and Cinema coming to our eyes, I think I might just soil myself with glee.

@ProfessorX they didn't stop him being a smoker, they just can't show him smoking on screen, presumably due to censorship issues. There's a scene in the pilot though where you see him putting out a cigarette, so his smoking is suggested even without being shown.

So a second season has already been greenlit!..fantastic

This looks really good! Zatanna was one of the characters Smallville got right:



Looking forward to seeing her on Constantine. I'm curious how she'll be adapted this time.

watched the pilot a few weeks ago,its good but this trailer shows all the best bits from that episode.
Batmaniac - 7/27/2014, 4:40 AM
There's an abundance of characters I want to see on the show, but if I had to pick 5, it would be Zatanna, Madame Xanadu, Deadman, Andrew Bennett and Swamp Thing.
mgeoff88 - 7/27/2014, 4:47 AM
I would also love to see Swamp Thing appear on the show.

I remember when I was a kid, I would watch the Swamp Thing TV show with my dad:



Good times.

3Hrs ago i made an article about this news video.... i embedded it and it wasnt workin... i dont knw y? even the image too.. [frick].
DrunkenNukem - 7/27/2014, 5:04 AM
Awsome!!! bring it!!! i think Black Orchid and Shade could work in this show

I hope they use some good CGI for the Spectre, he needs to get done the same way Dr. Manhattan did in Watchmen movie...

Swamp Thing or Frankestein can work with make up and cgi, but Etrigan and the Spectre need good cgi..
TheDudeRusty - 7/27/2014, 5:06 AM
Give me the Phantom Stranger
ProfessorX - 7/27/2014, 5:15 AM
"they didn't stop him being a smoker, they just can't show him smoking on screen"

Oh, well that's okay then...

MightyZeus - 7/27/2014, 6:07 AM
Now this is a show i'm really excited for!!!

I don't think any other show based on a comic book can match up to this, cept for The Walking Dead.
Desrow - 7/27/2014, 6:13 AM
Awesome

Stubner - 7/27/2014, 6:54 AM
Give me Swamp Thing or GET THE [frick] OUT!


Not really. I'm actually looking forward to this more than The Flash, Arrow, and SHIELD at this point.
DrunkenNukem - 7/27/2014, 7:34 AM
Walking Dead can´t do shit against Constantine

In WD the real threads are the humans. .the Zombies are just there walking around showing their faces to the camera..

Etrigan is who I'm waiting for. This show is shaping up to be freaking fantastic.
KaneRomita - 7/27/2014, 9:10 AM
The pilot was very good and seemed to hint at an 'American Gothic ' type storyline. I know it's a long shot but I'd LOVE to get some Swamp Thing action..
KaneRomita - 7/27/2014, 9:12 AM
The pilot mentions Baron Winters a lot and a chunk of the episode takes place in Winters' mansion ( see Swamp Thing #50 - one of the greatest comics of all time)
JacksonVegaIII - 7/27/2014, 9:29 AM
its ridiculous them not showing him smoking, its silly n petty n completely pointless, also is the actor american? what accent is he going for sounds kinda irish, i was under the impression constantine was a liverpudlian

EzioKenway1225 - 7/27/2014, 10:24 AM

SidTheSloth - 7/27/2014, 10:28 AM
All i want is The Phantom Stranger and Deadman
0megaDaGod - 7/27/2014, 11:39 AM
That would be dope if Arrow and Flash made up a Justice Society/League while Constantine gets a Justice League Dark of his own
gman3025 - 7/27/2014, 11:43 AM
I was at Comic Con 2014. They had a awesome tent setup outside that you got a 4D experience of a 3 minute promo for the series. The best thing was that there were actors walking around as Constantine and they were giving out his business card from the trailer.

I called the phone number and their is a Swamp Thing reference on the voicemail greeting!

call 404-248-7128.
PapaMidnite - 7/27/2014, 7:21 PM
WOW, looks awesome! The Newcastle incident in flashbacks... sweet!
case - 7/29/2014, 10:02 AM
All kinds of rad. Did they reshoot parts of the pilot for the first episode? I'm down with that. Tighten up the screws then cut em loose.
xstartripper - 7/29/2014, 11:51 AM
@case Yeah, they changed the demon among other things (now the demon is Constantine himself).
