NBC and Warner Bros Television have published the first official photo of Matt Ryan (The Tudors, Torchwood) in character as John Constantine from the upcoming series, Constantine. Based on the DC Comics characters, Constantine is being brought to life on the small screen by executive producers David S. Goyer (the Dark Knight trilogy, Da Vinci’s Demons) and Daniel Cerone. Cerone wrote the script from a story he and Goyer conceived.
Filming is currently underway with Neil Marshall (Game of Thrones) directing.
“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,” said executive producer David S. Goyer.
The cast of Constantine also took part in the “Slates for Sarah” campaign and posted a photo from the set to the Facebook page dedicated to the memory of the camera assistant who was killed on the set of Midnight Rider. [photo below the official photo]
Constantine follows enigmatic and irreverent Liverpool con-man-turned-occult-detective John Constantine, who is reluctantly thrust into the role of defending our world against dark forces from beyond.
Featured in hundreds of comic book issues, John Constantine has been a DC Comics staple since his first appearance as a supporting character in Swamp Thing in 1985. The character was subsequently featured in his own bestselling Hellblazer and Constantine comic book series.
