First Look At Matt Ryan As CONSTANTINE

NBC's tv adaptation of the excellent DC/Vertigo comic series began production today, and the network have released the very first still from the set, giving us a look at Welsh actor Matt Ryan as John Constantine. Fans should be very happy!

Surely nobody could have a problem with this? He looks damn near perfect! Costantine also stars Lucy Griffiths as Liv, Harold Perrineau as Manny, and Charles Halford as Chas. The show will be produced by The Mentalist executive producer Daniel Cerone and, the man who now very much seems to be DC/WB's go-to-guy, David S. Goyer. Constantine centers on John Constantine, an "enigmatic and irreverent con man-turned-reluctant supernatural detective who is thrust into the role of defending us against dark forces from beyond". The character is also expected to pop up in Guillermo del Toro's Dark Universe (an adaptation of the Justice League Dark comic book) and of course was already featured in his own movie starring Keanu Reeves - though thankfully this next incarnation will be a bit more blond..and British.

I approve if cipher approves since he's probably the biggest Constantine fan around here.

Neil Marshall is the guy who directed the Blackwater episode of Game of Thrones.

Gotta be good, then. At least the pilot.

MrCBM56, You beat me to it! All he needs is the cig.
Jhuntdaprodigy - 3/12/2014, 6:32 PM
While, an actor who actually looks exactly like the comic version of the character they're portraying, doth my eyes deceive me? Never been a huge Constantine fan, but I'll definitely be watching the premiere. Anyone know some good Constantine/Hellblazer stories a guy who doesn't know too much about him can check out?
MrCBM56 - 3/12/2014, 6:33 PM
I hope Swamp Thing and Zattana become series regulars, or recurring characters by the second season.
JoeMomma29 - 3/12/2014, 6:33 PM
I am so excited for this.
batz11 - 3/12/2014, 6:33 PM
[frick] this, he doesn't look like Keanu???
patrat18 - 3/12/2014, 6:34 PM
HAHAHA GOT TO LOVE DC! BEAUTIFUL!
ezio619 - 3/12/2014, 6:34 PM
i hope he smokes in this...
DrDoom - 3/12/2014, 6:35 PM
Looks like he leaped right off the comic page.

That's how you do it!
MrNiklander - 3/12/2014, 6:35 PM
Daniel Bryan Yes Cheer Daniel Bryan YES! Chant
MrCBM56 - 3/12/2014, 6:35 PM
Personally my favorite is Original Sins.
JillyMcBeam - 3/12/2014, 6:36 PM
Marvel is owning the big screen (for now) & DC is owning the small screen (for now).
blackandyellow - 3/12/2014, 6:36 PM
Joe, what'd you think of the Boys releasing Ware?
JoeMomma29 - 3/12/2014, 6:37 PM
@ Blackandyellow

Sad but he is up there in age I wish they would that with Romeo!
MidNightWind - 3/12/2014, 6:37 PM
Hell yeah!
DrunkenNukem - 3/12/2014, 6:37 PM
OMG....JEEZ HE LOOKS EXACTLY...

[frick] ....

Show me MORE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
MrCBM56 - 3/12/2014, 6:37 PM
I love the Hellblazer series because they're much more of a "graphic-novel" than a comic book. The series really set heights on what a anti-hero REALLY is.
Arrowhead77 - 3/12/2014, 6:37 PM
Looks great!
ezio619 - 3/12/2014, 6:37 PM
also i have heard the rumor that the character of Liv is actually Zatanna,is that true?
soberchimera - 3/12/2014, 6:38 PM
He just needs a cigarette in his mouth.
MrCBM56 - 3/12/2014, 6:40 PM
Comic books are taking over the media...
blackandyellow - 3/12/2014, 6:42 PM
Joe, yeah that cleared up a lot of cap space, but their D is the area that needs the most improvement. The Boys and the Steelers are both in shitty cap situations so they won't be very active during free agency.
