“Not all souls go gently into the night,” warns occult investigator John Constantine.
A new trailer for the NBC show based on DC’s Hellblazer series was screened at Comic-Con and is now online. Welsh actor Matt Reeves stars as the title character in the dark themed show that is sticking much closer to the source material than the 2005 feature film starring Keanu Reeves. Warner Bros. Television has been working overtime this year with their stable of shows based on comic books. Constantine joins Arrow, and fellow newcomers The Flash and Gotham.
You can check out the show’s first trailer which was released at the NBC Upfront when the show went to series HERE.
Here is the show’s official synopsis:
“Based on the wildly popular comic book series “Hellblazer” from DC Comics, seasoned demon hunter and master of the occult John Constantine (Matt Ryan, “Criminal Minds”) specializes in giving hell… hell. Armed with a ferocious knowledge of the dark arts and his wickedly naughty wit, he fights the good fight — or at least he did. With his soul already damned to hell, he’s decided to leave his do-gooder life behind, but when demons target Liv (Lucy Griffiths, “True Blood”), the daughter of one of Constantine’s oldest friends, he’s reluctantly thrust back into the fray – and he’ll do whatever it takes to save her. Before long, it’s revealed that Liv’s “second sight” — an ability to see the worlds behind our world and predict supernatural occurrences — is a threat to a mysterious new evil that’s rising in the shadows. Now it’s not just Liv who needs protection; the angels are starting to get worried too. So, together, Constantine and Liv must use her power and his skills to travel the country, find the demons that threaten our world and send them back where they belong. After that, who knows… maybe there’s hope for him and his soul after all.”
Constantine is set to debut on NBC, Friday, October 24th at 10 pm.
