CONSTANTINE First Official Image1 Trenchcoat alert: First look at Matt Ryan as Constantine

NBC has released the first official image of actor Matt Ryan as John Constantine in the upcoming pilot. Trenchcoat check, stubble, check, cigarette, no, but there is a memorial swirl of smoke behind him.

The pilot is being produced by Daniel Cerone & David S. Goyer, who wrote the script, and directed by Neil Marshall.

What d’yall think? I’m intrigued.

  1. To quote Keanu Reeves, “Whoa.”

    In addition to removing the smoking & drinking & swearing, I hope they will improve the luck that Constantine’s ladies have! In the comic, they were always dying, or having bad luck. Wouldn’t it be cool if a 2-week relationship led to GOOD LUCK for the gal? They end up winning the lottery, or finding their long-lost biological fathers. I hope this John Constantine is guilty of only loving too much. A large aspect of his character dynamic needs to be that every time he loves a girl, she gets a great boon, and he pays some sort of suffering. Constantine should always be putting others in front of himself. No sense of selfishness at all. The ladies would love that in a TV star.

    BRJ, are you going to post this nonsense on EVERY website? It was tired the first time you tried it out on Bleeding Cool.

  4. Big Roth Johnson says:

    Nergal says I have to…

    By the way, you also have posted opinions on at least 2 websites. We get it, you prefer the Keanu/New 52 Constantine.

  5. Charles Skaggs says:

    BRJ, I don’t actually, but I’m not so narrow-minded that I’m not willing to give the series a chance (should there even be a series) because I’m too hung up on petty details.

  6. Big Roth Johnson says:

    Maybe I’m just amused at all the feigned surprise – “WHAAATT??!! Some people are upset Constantine is a smoker? I had no idea that is the kind of thing fans cared about!”

    It takes me back to the Keanu announcement. “Nooooo, his Britishness is a character affectation…”

    But I do agree, Brooklyn Constantine deserves a shot, as did Agents of SHIELD.

    “One, Poochie needs to be louder, angrier, and have access to a time machine. Two, whenever Poochie’s not on screen, all the other characters should be asking “Where’s Poochie”?”

    I have to admit, this thread, and my talk of Spider Jerusalem, has given me a craving for a cigarette and a big bucket of fried caribou eyeballs.

    “I hope this John Constantine is guilty of only loving too much.”

    Because that sounds exactly like the character.

  10. Well, seeing as how Marvel has definitely conquered the cinema, it stands to reason that DC would want to swarm the networks – and yeah, both Constantine and The Flash LOOK the part, it’s true – but I think you & I both know that’s where the quality control is gonna end.

    David Goyer? You mean the guy who wrote that great FF movie where Galactus was a cosmic dust mote? Yeah. That’s who I’D want to bring my characters to the small screen. Here’s hoping Dan Didio will write some scripts, too. When he’s not taking the time out to ruin classic Kirby characters, anyway. Yeesh.
