I don’t know what’s going on over at Warner Bros’ TV division, but they’re handing out shows to comic book characters like Oprah gives out cars. No, scratch that, I know exactly what’s going on.
The latest DC “hero” to get a series in development is John Constantine, whose comic Hellblazer‘s previous adaptation, starring Keanu Reeves, left many fans underwhelmed. This new attempt for NBC is headed up by Daniel Cerone (who you may recognize as the man behind the upcoming Gotham, as well as The Mentalist) and David Goyer (writer of about 2/3 of all comic book movies of the last 15 years).
Constantine joins The Flash, Gotham, Booster Gold, Amazon and fellow Alan Moore-creation League of Extraordinary Gentlemen as DC Comics projects in various stages of development. All of which, of course, would join Arrow if and when they make it to air.
It’s not yet known how this will affect Guillermo del Toro’s Justice League Dark film (if that even ever makes it to the top of his constantly-growing to-do list).
