‘Constantine’ To The Big Screen? Matt Ryan On Board For Possible Film


In a recent interview, Constantine star Matt Ryan discusses a possible standalone movie for his character from the new NBC series.

Though Ryan admits to not knowing much about this possible development, it doesn’t seem like he or team of producers for the show have ruled this out. Ryan did offer his taken on the 2005 solo Constantine film which starred Keanu Reeves as a very different John Constantine:

“I liked the movie for what it was as a standalone movie. It’s not in the same space in my head though. Since I started this, I’ve delved into the comics and not really thought about the film. What’s funny is, I went out to dinner with a friend of mine the other day and she said, ‘Oh, a producer friend of mine is coming’, and he was the original producer of the Constantine movie. That was funny.”

When it came to a chance of seeing his own perspective, a more accurate take on the DC/Vertigo character and head of Justice League Dark, he stated:

“I’m not sure. The show’s made by Warner Bros., which has the deal with DC, and it’s licensed to NBC, so I don’t know how the ins and outs of that work. But as an actor, how amazing would that be to do a crossover?”  via ScreenRant

It’ll definitely be a refreshing change of pace to move to the big screen considering most, if not all, TV networks are nearly exhausting the Superhero bandwagon, including Fox and NBC.

Networks like the CW, however, have been working with DC Comics for a while considering old favorites like Smallville and its most recent spinoff series, The Flash.

It’s great seeing how hyped Matt Ryan is to take the character to the silver screen, and with the upcoming Justice League Dark inspired film,  now titled Dark Universe to be directed by Guillermo Del Toro the possibilities of seeing this newest take on John Constantine on the big screen are quite likely.

Constantine will resume on NBC, January 16, 2015
