From the Press Release:
As production begins on the new pilot “CONSTANTINE” — from executive producers Daniel Cerone and David S. Goyer and director Neil Marshall — NBC, Warner Bros. Television, and DC Entertainment are today releasing the first official image of series star Matt Ryan in character as John Constantine.
“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.
“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.
UK native Matt Ryan (Layer Cake, “The Tudors,” “Torchwood”) stars as the title character.
The “CONSTANTINE” pilot is executive produced by Daniel Cerone (“The Mentalist,” “Dexter”) and David S. Goyer (The Dark Knight films, Man of Steel). Neil Marshall (The Descent, “Game of Thrones”) is directing from a teleplay by Daniel Cerone with story by Daniel Cerone and David S. Goyer.
“CONSTANTINE” is from Bonanza Productions Inc. in association with Warner Bros. Television and is based upon characters published by DC Entertainment.
Look for lots more soon!
