That says Master, doesn't it? I'm getting new ones made!
Today, Warner Bros. and NBC have summoned the power of viral marketing and released a phone number out to the public for fans to call. For this promotion, actor Matt Ryan can actually be heard speaking as John Constantine, and he wants you to know he is not his friend Alec Holland. Want to know where you can reach Mister Holland? Dail the number to find out!
Alec Holland, of course, was a scientist in the DC Universe who was working on a formula for botanical restoration growth in a secret facility located in the Louisiana swamplands. One day, in a fatal act of sabotage, his lab was bombed--causing an inflamed Holland to run into the murky waters of the swamp to put out the flames eating away his flesh. It is here that the Green, an elemental force connected to all plant life on the planet, decided to make Holland their avatar--their warrior king! Swamp Thing!
Is this a hint that we'll be seeing Swamp Thing this season? Am I just rambling on so I can make this article longer? Tell us what you think below!
Constantine premieres on NBC this fall on October 24th.
Based on the wildly popular comic book series “Hellblazer” from DC Comics, seasoned demon hunter and master of the occult John Constantine (Matt Ryan, “Criminal Minds”) specializes in giving hell… hell. Armed with a ferocious knowledge of the dark arts and his wickedly naughty wit, he fights the good fight — or at least he did. With his soul already damned to hell, he’s decided to leave his do-gooder life behind, but when demons target Liv (Lucy Griffiths, “True Blood”), the daughter of one of Constantine’s oldest friends, he’s reluctantly thrust back into the fray – and he'll do whatever it takes to save her. Before long, it’s revealed that Liv’s “second sight” — an ability to see the worlds behind our world and predict supernatural occurrences — is a threat to a mysterious new evil that’s rising in the shadows. Now it’s not just Liv who needs protection; the angels are starting to get worried too. So, together, Constantine and Liv must use her power and his skills to travel the country, find the demons that threaten our world and send them back where they belong. After that, who knows… maybe there’s hope for him and his soul after all. The cast also includes Harold Perrineau and Charles Halford. Writer Daniel Cerone (“The Mentalist,” “Dexter”) serves as executive producer with David S. Goyer (“Man of Steel,” “The Dark Knight Rises”). “Constantine” is produced from Bonanza Productions in association with Warner Bros. Television. The show is based upon characters published by DC Entertainment.
