Matt Ryan is returning to the role of John Constantine again, but this time in cartoon form. Following his own one-season show on NBC and a guest appearance on Arrow, he will now be voicing Constantine for the animated Justice League Dark. And here’s a sneak peek to prove it:
Justice League Dark is DC’s paranormal superteam, first introduced in 2011, comprising supernatural characters such as John Constantine, Swamp Thing, Zatanna, Frankenstein, Deadman, Madame Xanadu, and The Phantom Stranger. For a long while Guillermo del Toro was developing a live action movie for Warners Bros but the idea was eventually shelved last year.
In the animated version, which will go on sale on Blu-ray and DVD in the autumn, Ryan is joined by Camilla Luddington (Grey’s Anatomy, the current Lara Croft in the Tomb Raider games) as Zatanna, Nicholas Turturro (Blue Bloods) as Deadman, Ray Chase as Jason Blood/Etrigan The Demon and Jason O’Mara as Batman. The film is also features Black Orchid and Swamp Thing along with cameos from Wonder Woman, Superman and Green Lantern.
