    Honestly, it seems like there’d be more potential there (in a Constantine show) than what I was feeling from the Oliver-less Arrow.

    I've heard the occasional rumbling about the possibility of a revival of his solo show. Might be a good replacement for Supernatural in The CW's lineup. Although with the announcement that Bad Robot is exploring movie and series possibilities for Justice League Dark, that might put a kibosh on those plans.

    I wonder if the solution they used to their Rasputin problem was inspired by all the memes in between Infinity War and Endgame about Ant-Man defeating Thanos by crawling up his crap hole and enlarging? Obviously, Ray is
    not going to crawl up Rasputin's ass on network prime-time television, but the effect is the same.

    You know very well what I mean. You have to take it with some seriousness or it just falls apart.

    It’s the Mick Foley mentality from WWE. If you don’t take his personas seriously, it doesn’t work.

    Bad Robot signed a big deal with WB and from the gist of what i got from the article I read is that the might do solo stuff with the Justice League Dark characters, not just them all together in one group for one TV series or one movie series. Might be hope for a Constantine series yet.

    Even so, Constantine generally seems to be treated as the lead character of JL Dark in its various forms, so it stands to reason that he'd be the linchpin of any movie project they did, and they'd probably develop their own version of the character.

    Wonder Woman and Zatanna are the current leads of the series.

    I said "generally." Screen adaptations tend to draw on the entire history, not just the current stuff.

    Great episode. Legends is back and as delightfully batshit crazy as ever. I think this new evil dead storyline is going to be great for the show.

    Lovely premiere.

    Mildly disappointed they didn't use Boney M's Rasputin as the soundtrack at some point.

    Just offering the information. Including WW in JLD may be a cool way to keep her in the DCEU following he solo film.

    I was waiting for that to play too. It would have been awesome!

    I was thinking the same thing.
    Great opener, and it's basically now the only Arrowverse show that I'm still watching, so I'm glad it's still working with a subversive mind set.
    I tried about 10 minutes of the Arrow and Canaries back door pilot and found it ludicrously self-serious--even by Arrow standards.

    Long may the Legends legend!

    I think it takes things just seriously enough for it to work. The stuff based around Sarah and her reaction Oliver's death shows that they can still deal with serious stuff when they need to.

    I mentioned it in regards to the crossover but Caity Lotz has been good as a grounding influence that helps anchor when things get crazy.
