Angels and demons throw down in official trailer for NBC's Constantine

05.11.2014

Fans seemed pretty happy when the first image of Matt Ryan as John Constantine popped up online back in March.  While I was overall fairly satisfied with the Keanu Reeves flick, it looks like the series is set to deliver something a little more in line with the comic (at the very least, with its lead character's design).  Constantine is set to debut this fall on NBC, but you can catch the official trailer for the Hellblazer TV series right now!  If demons, exercisms, creepy crawlies, lots of fire and incantations are your thing, then what are you waiting for?!?

Check it out:

TV shows can't generally keep up with the budgets of thier cinematic counterparts, but color me impressed with what NBC is throwing our way.  Neil Marshall (CENTURION, THE DESCENT) has directed the pilot penned by David Goyer (THE DARK KNIGHT, MAN OF STEEL), and their style seems to fit the occultist detective like a glove.  With Agent Carter and a second season of S.H.I.E.L.D. on the way (and plenty more in the pipeline), it looks like we'll have more comic-based TV shows than you can shake a demon stick at.  S.H.I.E.L.D. seems to have its fanbase pleased, so we'll see if NBC can deliver with what looks to be a pretty cool premise.

Constantine, starring Matt Ryan, Lucy Griffiths, Harold Perrineau, and Charles Halford, hits TV sets this fall on NBC.

The look suggest that he's John Constantine, but I still can't shake the image of Edward Kenway whenever I hear this guy talks.

The visuals look great, not sure about the actor playing Constantine. Really wish that HBO or another premium cable channel was picking this up though to give it the R rating it deserves. The picture was a bit misleading about the smoking, was thinking he was a smoker with all that smoke surrounding him, but no smoker in the trailer. Not saying they can't have a good Constantine show without a smoker but it would have at least been nice for diehard fans of the character. Although after watching

Although after watching the trailer again he does have a lighter so maybe he will be a smoker.

3 minutes of more redeeming footage than an entire 2hrs of Keanu Reeves.
As for the smoking...well most parents will complain because smoking can be imitated and seeing that on TV will cause their children to start smoking. I wonder what those parent's stand will be on exorcisms and black magic?

Yup...that's John Constantine

The smoking isn't an issue. just have him constantly having nic fits and freebasing patches. As long as it is alluded to I'm fine. I'll wait 'till I've seen it to judge, but for now I'm happy.

This trailer makes it seem like

a slightly more intense version of Goosebumps (the way its filmed etc) with a bad Cosplayer playing John Constantine.

This looks every so slightly better than Gotham at the moment. Crossing my fingers for both shows. And please, if we can't have del Toro's Dark Universe, at least have Zatanna show up on this one eventually!

I cannot believe people are complaining about him not smoking. Yes, let's have him do one of the most unhealthiest things so fanboys won't bitch. Are you fucking kidding me?

Seriously. Bond fans were all too happy when Brosnan's Bond kicked the habit.

He's a "Character" in a TV show why does it matter if he does something unhealthy. My god if we start censoring fiction because the characters do things unhealthy or dangerous then imagine how boring the future of TV, Movies, Novels is going to be. I guess you want to live in a world were everything is regulated for you and forced on everyone else so you can enjoy your smugness as you sip your kelp smoothie and go to your oxygen bar.

And if your kids are too weak minded not to resist

Looks good.

Not surprised to see him not smoking. Television has a rule against having a chain smoking protagonist. Movies do to, if the main character is a chain smoker, then the movie automatically gets an 'R' rating now.

further to that, it depends what kind of smoking. If someone is having a problem kicking the habit, or its just a casual or character trait, thats fine. If they are portraying it as something coooooool to do, then thatll be a ding against the movie.

I promise you, you'll never see a casually chain smoking protagonist in a PG-13 movie anymore.

I use 'casual' in the "relaxed, easy going" context. You'll never see a character who chain smokes just for the indulgence of it. Smoking will always come with a political context of "its bad for you kiddos".

true, while i think that someone who smokes regularly (chain smoking would have to be relevant to the character, like brad pitt eating in every scene in oceans movies) but if someone was a chain smoker, i dont think that would make it r rated but I do agree that directors/producers would kaybosh it just to avoid the headache that comes with it.

Wow that chick really looks like a young Rachel Weisz I wonder if they did that on purpose. And where are the arm tats, or was that a movie only addition. And I agree no cigs no joy. But I have a feeling we are all going to be let down by that one, maybe he will light up an e-cig. LOL

I just hope the show stays true to Constantine's roots and his characteristics.

Otherwise, the trailer was fine for what's to come.
