NBC's CONSTANTINE to Tie to Cinematic JUSTICE LEAGUE DARK?

Now whilst it’s been confirmed many times that The CW’s ARROW and THE FLASH, not to mention FOX’s upcoming GOTHAM, won't tie into the larger cinematic DC world, it appears that NBC’s CONSTANTINE may just have a chance of being a part of the DCCU. Guillermo del Toro teased the idea whilst talking about his long-planned JUSTICE LEAGUE DARK movie.

Asked by IGN whether his movie could have any links to Matt Ryan’s small-screen John Constantine, del Toro said, “To me, film was… without a doubt to develop the movie, because I get to have fun. I would love to have the Spectre in it. He’s one of the most beyond moral characters in [the DC Universe] and he does crazy things. Like they’re doing with that CONSTANTINE. The only thing I may have cleared to them is that the TV series won’t affect my movie. They said that’s ok. They said you can have independence. Now when we see the series, if we could mesh with it and keep the same actor, depending on how the movie was going, I would be happy to consider that.”

So it appears that del Toro could be interested in featuring Ryan’s Hellblazer in his movie, depending on how CONSTANTINE plays out.

CONSTANTINE will debut on NBC on 24th October, with us still awaiting confirmation of the show finding a UK home.
