After NBC cancelled the Constantine show, Matt Ryan went on to reprise his role as the Hellblazer on an episode of Arrow this season, thus integrating him into The CW’s DC-TV Universe. However, fans have been wanting to see John Constantine appear again, either on Arrow or one of the spin-off shows. Now, a new rumor suggests that Constantine will return once more…as a legend of tomorrow.
According to Bleeding Cool, the current plan is for John Constantine to become a series regular on DC’s Legends of Tomorrow. The catch? This will have to wait until the show’s second season, assuming it will be renewed. Bleeding Cool claims that Legends of Tomorrow would “radically” change its cast and mission with each season, comparing it to Justice League Unlimited.
Additionally, The Vampire Diaries alum Steven R. McQueen is being looked at for a hero role for Legends of Tomorrow season two. The hero’s name is currently unknown. McQueen has been a fan-favorite to play Nightwing in the Arrowverse for a while, but that character is off-limits to the show right now. Nightwing will be in TNT’s Titans show – if the show gets made – and he is expected to play a role in the DC Extended Universe.
While this info sounds great, take it with a pinch of salt for the time being. It is a rumor that has yet to be confirmed by anyone involved with Legends of Tomorrow. In fact, the show is two months away from premiering, so talk of a second season now may be premature. But, this isn’t out of the realm of possibility. Stay tuned for more as we have it.
DC’s Legends of Tomorrow premieres Thursday, January 21st on The CW.
