In some news that’s sure to put a grin on the face of many a genre fan, it’s been confirmed that Matt Ryan will be reprising his live-action Constantine role.
As per The Hollywood Reporter, Ryan’s John Constantine will turn up in two episodes of DC’s Legends of Tomorrow upcoming third season. Ryan, of course, played Hellblazer for one solitary season of NBC’s sadly-canned Constantine. Since then, he’s appeared in a fourth season episode of Arrow, while Ryan has also reprised the role in animated form, previously in the impressive Justice League Dark animated film and soon to be seen in CW Seed’s animated Constantine series.
On Ryan’s Legends role, showrunner Phil Klemmer explained, “His appearance in episode 310 will involve the following: a revisiting of Arrow Season 4 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 Waverider thus far in Season 3; and Damien Darhk, 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?”
As mentioned, as well as DC’s Legends of Tomorrow, Ryan will headline his own animated Constantine series early next year.
