A Constantine Series Is in Development

David Goyer and Daniel Cerone (making a second "The Mentalist" exec involved in a DC series) are developing a "Constantine" series for NBC. I'm actually pretty excited about the possibility of this.

http://www.bleedingcool.com/2013/09/...daniel-cerone/

So now that means we have "The Flash", "Gotham", and now "Constantine" in development from DC Ent at the moment.

Sound like they're throwing everything at the wall to see what sticks. Honestly though, of the three I think Constantine has the greatest potential if done right.

Better be.

I suggested Jamie Campbell Bower on Facebook in response to a friend who posted this information, as I think he'd be "gettable" for a weekly television series. She countered with Tom Hardy, which would be very good and not entirely out of the realm of possibility.

Constantine will be a sassy American black woman in this version.

Re: A Constantine Series Is in Development

So this'd basically be a PI procedural show with some supernatural elements/socio-theological kitsch thrown in? With maybe some wisecracks along the way? How stupefyingly novel - pardon me while I go spend some quiet time in a large, dark room so as to not hyperventilate with excitement.

Does this mean the film "Dark Universe" ( or perhaps "Justice League Dark" ) isn't happening?

Constantine has had great potential as a series from the beginning, but not on NBC. It needs to be either a British series or an HBO series. It would be great if it were similar in tone to Torchwood or the more recent Utopia. On NBC, it would not have the edge that a Constantine series really needs.

I liked the character in JLD Vol. 1, and I like these kinds of supernatural shows, so I'll gladly check this out if it happens.

"Justice League Dark" is still happening as far as I'm aware. This is probably something separate and that just focuses on Constantine.

Well, he's British and blonde anyway, I can't imagine him as Constantine though.

Shame this is on Network TV. I'd like to see it on HBO or the like - maybe HBO need a replacement for True Blood and will go for something like this.
