‘Papa Midnite’ Will Battle CONSTANTINE In NBC Series; New Details On Pilot’s Setting

With Matt Ryan set to play the titular character, we have new details for NBC’s Constantine pilot and potential series, which is eyeing a Fall 2014 premiere. Confirming what @HellblazerTV previously revealed, Bleeding Cool reports that Papa Midnite will recur as a villain, if the pilot is ordered to series. The pilot will give the character an origin subplot, before pitting him against John Constantine throughout the show. Midnite was previously played by Djimon Hounsou in the 2005 Constantine film.

Additionally, we have details on the pilot’s setting. Constantine will take place “in and around” New York. There will also be scenes that occur in the Ravenscar Psychiatric Hospital, but unlike the comics’ version, it will apparently also feature in New York rather than the UK. While that will be the primary setting of the pilot, other potential episodes will travel beyond New York. Finally, Bleeding Cool adds that we should expect a lot of familiar storylines and characters, as well as reinvented ideas to fit within the world of the show. Stay tuned for more news as we have it.
