No, they weren't connected as far as I know. They never should have been connected, honestly, especially as bad as the New 52 did it (they met because Zatanna was literally a magical dancer and/or stripper in a magic based club Constantine went to
). Hopefully she won't show up in Constantine, especially if they are using the New 52 comics as inspiration. She was ok in Smallville, but they didn't really get her right there, either. But if she has to be used by any of the shows, I wouldn't want her tied to Constantine outside of the bad comics.
Constantine and Zatanna did have a relationship prior to the New 52. He appears as her lover in Zatanna's Secret Origins. She's appeared in Hellblazer, too.
Well, I never said that they didn't interact pre New 52. I meant that they weren't tightly connected, when someone thought about Zatanna they didn't automatically think of Constantine and vice-versa (generally speaking). Its like how Cyborg was actually in the last Justice League of America run before the reboot, but he wasn't really connected with the league until the reboot. In the New 52, both Zatanna and Constantine have a lot of connected backstory, which they definitely didn't have pre-reboot.
