As Warner Bros. prepares for their all out assault on television this coming fall, another casting announcement has been made. Deadline is reporting that Welsh actor, Matt Ryan, is finalizing a deal with NBC to play Constantine in their pilot.
The upcoming Constantine series is based on the DC Comics character of the same name. Keanu Reeves played the character in the 2005 movie of the same name. Whether that film will have any ties to this character (I’m doubting there will be), or if they will just use the comic books as their source material is unknown.
So far, along with another season of Arrow this fall, we will be getting The Flash, Gotham and Constantine. Marvel may own the comic book movie business, but DC/Warner Bros. is about to take over our televisions. (Source: Deadline)
