There are only two types of people in the world: those who love Matt Ryan as Constantine, and those who don’t give a fig who Constantine is or who plays him (because they don’t read comics or they live in a cave or something). So while we await news of when we might see Ryan playing the surly sorcerer in a live action Arrowverse show (soon, please) we can tide ourselves over by listening to him voice the character in the forthcoming CW Seed animated Constantine series. And here’s the poster for that series!
The Constantine animated series will consist of five to six 10-minute episodes and will premiere in 2018. The series is produced by David S Goyer (Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, The Dark Knight trilogy, the Constantine live action series), Greg Berlanti (The Flash, Arrow, Supergirl) and Sarah Schechter (Riverdale, DC’s Legends of Tomorrow). It’s been written by JM DeMatteis which is very good news indeed as he’s a comic book writer who’s not afraid to get deeply, deeply weird (check out his Moonshadow graphic novel).
