‘Constantine’: NBC Offers First Glimpse of DC Comics Character

NBC is hoping to rev up comicbook fan interest in its Warner Bros. TV drama pilot based on the DC Comics property “Constantine.”

The Peacock on Thursday released a photo of star Matt Ryan in character as the Liverpool conman turned occult detective John Constantine, who finds himself battling dark forces to protect Earth.

“Constatine” hails from David S. Goyer, Neil Marshall and Daniel Cerone. The trio boasts plenty of genre-fan cred through Goyer’s work on “The Dark Knight” series, Marshall’s time on “Game of Thrones” and Cerone’s stint on “Dexter.”

“I’ve been a fan of John Constantine since he was first introduced in 1985. This Constantine, envisioned by Neil Marshall and embodied by Matt Ryan, looks like he sprang directly from the comics’ covers. Fans old and new are going to be in for a treat,” Goyer said.

The Constantine character made his comicbook debut in 1985 as part of the “Swamp Thing” series. He then toplined his own “Hellblazer” and “Constantine” series.

British theps Matt Ryan’s past credits include Showtime’s “The Tudors” and BBC’s “Torchwood.”
