New trailer for NBC's Constantine series teases Doctor Fate appearance

06.10.2014

A new trailer for NBC's upcoming Constantine series has landed online, and while it does give us another look at the new show starring Matt Ryan as the occult detective, the trailer also contains a tease for the DC comic book character Doctor Fate. The Helmet of Nabu worn by Doctor Fate is revealed at the 47-48 second mark in the trailer, and I wonder if this means there will be other DC characters appearing on NBC's new series as well.

Check it out:

I've only read a few of the comics, but I don't remember Doctor Fate playing a huge role in Constantine or Hellblazer. If Doctor Fate does make an appearance on Constantine, there's a chance the show might be a part of a larger DC television universe, and won't just be a stand-alone series. I'm just speculating here, however Guillermo Del Toro has talked about wanting to do a Justice League Dark movie with John Constantine, so maybe a few of these characters will instead end up on television series directly connected to Constantine.

I've liked everything I've seen so far for Constantine, and I'm pretty excited there's a chance DC characters who don't appear in the comics might be popping up on NBC's new series. Which characters would you like to see appear on Constantine?

Constantine will premiere on NBC on October 24, 2014.

So here's what I think. Arrow is awesome. Constantine trailer looked impressive as did what I've seen of the Flash thus far. The Gotham trailer looked pretty good too. It's a shame that Arrow and Flash isn't going to share a universe together with the other shows (Gotham being a prequel). Assuming everything is of the same quality as Arrow...you've then got a TV universe that could give Marvel a serious beat down in the TV stakes department (albeit Shield season 2 and the Netflix shows

Assuming everything is of the same quality as Arrow...you've then got a TV universe that could give Marvel a serious beat down in the TV stakes department (albeit Shield season 2 and the Netflix shows could change all that) and a brilliant supporting platform to their, in my opinion, thus far lackluster, cinematic universe. Unfortunately with all their TV shows, Arrow/Flash aside appearing to be in separate universes, together with what happened with Green Lantern, MoS not being what I had hoped it would be, and the, what seems like, a rushed job of getting the JL together, I still think WB's excel at disjointed thinking...or they're fooling us all and have a secret plan to tie this all together. How cool would that be?

The only scene I really want to see them recreate from the comics is the one from Swamp Thing #37. When Constantine meets up with Swamp Thing and asks "mine if I smoke?". Then proceeds to pull a piece of ole Swampy, roll it and smoke it. That right there showed me it was a character I was gonna enjoy.

Apologies, it was Hellblazer #9 where that happened.

The time slot sucks

but this series looks great so far. I hope it finds its audience. As for adding other DC characters, I'm on the fence: it would be great to delve into the Vertigo characters but I highly doubt they'll be allowed to add Dream or Death to the mix.

We were promised Madame Xanadu, Shade, Enchantress, Mindwarp Swamp Thing, the Demon, Deadman, the Spectre and Zatanna and we will probably get them. I doubt if they will be called Justice League Dark though.

Suppose TV's Green Arrow and the Flash appear in the Justice League movie. NBC won't want Constantine appearing in a Justice League movie because then they'd be promoting CW shows. But what they could do is develop a separate Vertigo Cinematic Universe with characters that will be

If only they would make a Fables TV series. None of that Once Upon a Time bullshit that Disney made.

Hopefully we'll get a taste of Guillermo del Toro's Justice League Dark within this show, and the appearance of Dr. Fate is a step in the right direction. What we all want is Zatanna though, am I right?

I'm kind of sold on this after watching the trailer. I liked the Keanu reeves version and I kind of like the direction they're going with it. I just hope they're not copying the grim route because Grim is a real crappy show

Between Constantine and Gotham, I have higher hope for Constantine so hopefully it will pay off nicely.

I really don't have much hope for this series since it's on NBC and on Friday nights. But I guess if Hannibal, and Grimm can get popular and multiple seasons, I guess Constantine could too.

This show could be amazing if it was on Netflix.
