Is A Live-Action Show for “Constantine” is in talks? Fans have been begging for superhero news in these difficult times and DC has been answering the calls off late.
Constantine is a 2005 superhero movie based on DC Comics’ “Hellblazer”. Francis Lawrence was the director of the movie. The movie was a hit but the sequel never managed to come together. But after 15 years we might get a spin-off of the movie. Although there was a series based on the comic book and movie on NBC it got canceled after just one season due to low ratings.
Release Date of “Constantine: Live-Action Show”
According to sources DC and Warner Bros. are reportedly working together for the live- action show. JJ Abrams is roped in for producing it and the production house will be Bad Robot Productions. We do not have an official date of release yet for the show.
The Plot of the Live-Action Show
Constantine is based on the DC comic book, Hellblazer. The protagonist of the story John Constantine is a cynic who has the ability to perceive and communicate with half-angels and half-demons in their true form. He wants salvation from eternal damnation in Hell for a suicide attempt in his youth. He exorcises demons back to Hell to earn favor with Heaven but he has become weary over time. Constantine helps a troubled police detective learn the truth about her twin sister’s death while battling terminal lung cancer. He simultaneously unravels a much larger and darker plot.
There is no update on whether the live-action show will be a soft reboot of the movie or will be a complete reboot. The show is reportedly to be similar in tone to the HBO Max’s “Justice League Dark” series. Although there is no announcement about whether the two stories will be connected.
In December, “The Batman” co-writer Mattson Tomlin who is an avid Hellblazer fan, shared a GIF from “American Psycho” with the revised quote, “I need to buy some comic books” This lead to speculations that he might be working on something Constantine-related. Check out the tweet from Tomlin here.
