John Constantine has been a popular character over the past decade, being featured in the 2005 hit movie Constantine starring Keanu Reeves as the title demon-hunting character, based on the Hellblazer graphic novels by Alan Moore and Stephen R. Bissette. We saw the character again in 2014’s series “Constantine” starring Matt Ryan who then joined “Legends of Tomorrow.” Constantine will now be kicking demon ass in J.J. Abrams’ “Just League Dark.”
Reports are now coming in ( via Dread Central) that there will be feature film spin-offs of “Just League Dark” which includes a new live-action Constantine movie that Abrams will be producing! But that’s not all! According to the Dread Central, Keanu Reeves is returning to reprise his epic role!
So far there are no details about the plot or other cast members, but we’ll keep you posted.
The original film, written by Kevin Brodbin and Frank Cappello, centers on demon hunter John Constantine who has literally been to hell and back. He sets out to help police detective Angela Dodson (Rachel Weisz) whose identical twin sister has allegedly committed suicide. The investigation puts Constantine and Angela in the middle of a plot that involves both heaven and hell.
