1377906-picture_2If you haven’t heard – a  Constantine  TV series, which is based on a DC Comics property, is being developed by NBC. Constantine was originally created by Alan Moore in 1985, and he was the main character of Vertigo’s Hellblazer comic, which ran for over 20 years before it was replaced by DC Comics’ Constantine earlier this year.  While shooting the pilot episode, the cast and crew snapped a few shots of themselves for Sarah Elizabeth Jones, who died last month while working as a camera assistant on the Greg Allman biopic “Midnight Rider.”

Check out the photos below, which give us a look at Matt Ryan (Criminal Minds: Suspect Behavior) as the title character. The series also stars Lucy Griffiths as Liv, Harold Perrineau as the angel Manny and Charles Halford as Constantine’s friend Chas. It’s written by David Goyer (Batman Begins, Man of Steel) And directed by Neil Marshall (The Descent).

For those of you who are unfamiliar with the comic series (or the movie starring Keanu Reeves), “Constantine” centers on John Constantine, an enigmatic and irreverent con-man, who becomes a reluctant supernatural detective and is thrust into the role of defending the world against dark forces from beyond. When the daughter of a late friend is targeted by demons, Constantine steps in to save her.

The new photos come just days after some news of the TV series named Gotham, focused on Batman’s friend Commissioner Gordon and CW’s The Flash news.

My Take: This is altogether good news for me as I can see Constantine becoming very popular due to the huge popularity of tv’s Supernatural (of which I am a big fan) and I’m excited to see what will be done with the concept in comparison. Also Matt Ryan (shown below) looks like an awesome John Constantine.
