Looks Like That Constantine Show is Happening Too!

I am generally pessimistic when it comes to movie and TV show adaptations of comics. Mostly because anybody can name-drop a famous property online just to get the publicity and the never mention it again. The Internet may claim that Power Rangers is going to get a movie reboot, but I won’t believe it until I see it. Likewise with all of these sequels to 20-year-old movies being announced. Or the apparently nine movies DC Comics has in some form of production. Heck, I still don’t think that World of Warcraft movie is going to come out, and they’ve almost finished filming.

But I guess it seems that Constantine TV show is going to be real. NBC put out a trailer this weekend.

I never read Hellblazer and I actually kind of liked the Keanu Reeves movie. So while I don’t have any particular interest in this show, I’ll probably watch it because of its roots. That’s the kind of geek I am. The trailer looks pretty cool, with its magic and specters and the like, but something about actor Matt Ryan as John Constantine doesn’t sit right with me. He seems too young to be this world-weary. And that outfit looks more like cosplay than something an actual person would wear. But I think he’s got the attitude down right.

So maybe it’ll be a good show!

    I’m really looking forward to it. I never read the Hellblazer comics but the idea of Constantine is pretty cool and I like all that demon jazz. I can only hope it’s good. the accent is pretty decent too but the actor is welsh so it’s not too far off from what we English sound like. Your right about the outfit, something doesn’t sit right with me about it, I think it’s the coat, too plain and thin looking maybe???

    • I think they’re trying too hard to replicate his comic book look instead of just dressing him in normal clothes.

        yeah it clearly looks as if it’s been made as an “outfit” of sorts. Fair enough they try to stay as close to the source material as possible, but don’t make the clothing, ’cause then it gets that paper thin quality that I hate in cosplay, just buy real clothes that are similar in style.
