Arrow's fourth season could get a visit from John Constantine

Looks like NBC's supernatural DC series Constantine may not be completely dead. While the short-lived show was cancelled after a single season and no other network jumped in to carry it for a second round, it looks like the character of John Constantine may have another shot on a different DC show.

At Comic Con, Arrow star Stephen Amell teased that the new season of the show would feature a theme of magic and mysticism. IGN then asked if there was a chance Constantine could cross-over onto the series. Arrow producer Wendy Mercle had this to say.

“Yeah, we really want to do it. It’s something we’ve been talking to DC about and it’s just a question of some political things, but also the actor’s schedule. We’re trying to work it out, but we don’t know 100 percent if it’s going to happen, but we’re really optimistic and we would love to have him.”

With each subsequent run of episodes, Arrow has shifted from existing in a realistic, Nolan-esque world to one full of meta-humans thanks to the spin-off success of The Flash. Bringing in mystical elements would not be new as the third season revolved around R'as Al Ghul and his ability to bring back the dead. Season four will already have a villain in Damien Darhk so why not bring in Constantine?

While I was disappointed in NBC's take on the character, it would be cool to see him exist in a combined universe with The CW's quality shows. Here's hoping this is just the beginning of what DC's small screen cross-overs have to offer.

Arrow's fourth season premiere airs on October 7th.

Mark Ryan was pretty much all the good bits of Constantine: fantastic casting surrounded by a fairly average show.

Will be awesome to see more of the character.

I loved Constantine. It took a couple of episodes to find its footing, but it got there and in a big way imo. This is refreshing to hear, because lets face it, a few good guest appearances on one of these shows generally leads to a series. It would be cool to have him gust star on Arrow/Flash/Legends and then bring his show back to that network. They've already shown they can do some pretty amazing effects on the Flash so they could manage Constantine if done right. And frankly while the show's

And frankly while the show's ratings were not all that good for NBC, for the CW it's ratings would be Flash level. Give him a shot!

Actually that's not bad idea since Constantine's own show got canceled. He could be a recurring character in Arrow's 4th season or a character in the new DC superheroes series that has Atom and Firestorm.

May be it was because Flash was just so awesome and refreshing...but Arrow wasn't nearly as much fun last season. For me, that's a concern as I don't think it ever picked up the pace following the brilliant first half of season 2. That said, I really do like the DC television universe they've created and any attempt to bring in more characters is very welcomed. I'm still disappointed that they didn't tie Supergirl in to this and simply have her be the Superman of this world.

I'm up for it. I'd rather have small appearances of Matt Ryan as Constantine than none at all. However in a perfect world someone like Netflix would bring him back over to the UK and do the damn show properly.

uhhh why not? seems like everyone here supports Constantine and agrees that it took a few episodes to find its footing. It would just be a one episode guest spot.....so whats the big deal with "uhhh I hope not":
