It seems like just yesterday we were expressing disappointment about Constantine 2. See, Keanu Reeves stars in this excellent 2005 movie Constantine and its upcoming sequel. yesterday news began spreading that the sequel was no longer happenings. But, like in life, time heals all wounds and we’re now back in a happy place where Constantine is back on the WB Discovery slate. At least it is according to EW:
Well, rest assured that, even in the face of a lot of reshuffling of the DC superhero slate, the film is still happening.
A spokesperson for Warner Bros. confirmed to EW that Constantine 2 is not scrapped. Internet chatter going around social media suggested it had been.
Reeves will be reprising his role of John Constantine, the magic-wielding occult expert made popular by Alan Moore and Stephen R. Bissette’s Hellblazer comics.
Anything that falls outside of that main DCU line-up, including the upcoming The Batman — Part II, will exist as standalone stories under the “Elseworlds” umbrella.
For now, you can rest easy that Reeves is still going to be raising Hell, no matter where he falls.
This is definitely reassuring news for those (of us) who are looking forward to Reeves reprising his role. This news is definitely comforting for fans of his version of Constantine and I wouldn’t mind where he lands in the DCU. Now that we know this project is still moving forward we can sit back and relax. It’s fine. Everything’s fine. We’ll keep you updated if this changes (again).
That’s all for now…
