Guess the CW isn’t done with John Constantine!
News broke today that the beloved character will revisit the Arrowverse, this time on Legends of Tomorrow. According to GeekTyrant, series showrunner Phil Klemmer offered details on the appearance:
“As for the character of Constantine, we knew that an alienated, chain-smoking, bisexual, world-weary demonologist would feel right at home among our Legends. His appearance in episode 310 will involve the following: a revisiting of Arrow season four and the events following that season’s finale episode; a confrontation with this season’s Big Bad on Legends — the name we’ve only heard whispered until now Mallus; some hot sex — something that has been in short supply on the Wave Rider thus far in season three; and Damien Darhk (Neil McDonough), because how can you do an episode about dark magic and not have Damien Darhk? More than anything, the episode promises to be scary as you know what — tonally it’s The Exorcist meets One Flew Over The Cuckoo’s Nest. Demonic possession in a mental institution, what’s not to love?”
Matt Ryan started playing the titular character in the failed NBC series, he hasn’t left the role, recently voicing the character for the Constantine animated series on CW Seed as well as his Arrow season 4 appearance.
I’m excited to see what Constantine gets up to with our Legends, but will have to wait until after the big 4-way crossover.
