NBC’s Constantine pilot, based on the DC/Vertigo character John Constantine, began filming this week. The network released a behind-the-scenes image featuring the crew (which you can see above), while also offering a first glimpse at actor Matt Ryan as the Hellblazer. Now, NBC has unveiled an official, better image of Constantine. Needless to say, the character design is virtually identical to that of the comics’, which should please fans. Accompanying the image is a press release confirming the start of production, and also includes quotes from David S. Goyer. Stay tuned for more Constantine news as we have it.
As production begins on the new pilot CONSTANTINE — from executive producers Daniel Cerone & 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 & David S. Goyer.
CONSTANTINE is from Bonanza Productions Inc. in association with Warner Bros. Television, and is based upon characters published by DC Entertainment.
