Yesterday, it was revealed that Matt Ryan would be showing up on Arrow as John Constantine, a role that he played in the cancelled NBC show. Now, reports are coming out of how he will be involved in his one-shot appearance during the fourth season of the CW series, reported by TV Insider.

Executive Marc Guggenheim hinted at the fact that Constantine's involvement in the dark arts will factor into bringing Sara Lance back from the dead.

"Unlike Thea, who wasn’t fully dead, the consequences of using the pit on someone as dead as Sara was creates some unforeseen difficulties...and John Constantine is uniquely suited to help our team deal with those."

Guggenheim continued and made it pretty clear this is a one-time deal. No news yet on what episode Constantine will appear. We'll keep you updated as more develops.

I hope he makes a Pet Sementary reference.

I hope they retain the fact that he is the most cunning human being in fiction and he's a scheming scum bag that isn't afraid to sacrifice his friends for the greater good (I.e. himself). That would be the JC I know and love

If they only use him for a one-time deal, then its totally waste of great character

I'm guessing it'll just be the one time this season, but he'll be back in one way or another

At least if he's only used once this season, it shows that they cared enough to save what so many people have come to enjoy from Constantine. People, if we want him to have more appearances, we need to do it with our views, good reviews, and possibly money. We need to show support so they'll know we want him to continue to make appearances and possibly grow into something bigger from there.

I think it's now planned as a one shot. But maybe, just maybe with enough fan support he could appear in either Legends or Flash.

Makes a ton of sense. As i stated a ways back, having the Laz pit around opens up a whooole can of worms. Interested to see what complications come around with the resurrection. Seems they are gonna use it as reason for why they don't just bring EVERYONE back.

Something tells me that a demon is possessing Sara's body after coming back from the dead.

I'd love to see him on the Flash and see how Cisco and the rest of team Flash react to magic.

Sounds good to me. I do hope that this won't be John's only appearance in the DCWverse. And hopefully Constantine fans will spike ratings enough that the CW will consider expanding his role in the future.

That's cool. Hope he shows up on Flash too. I love how DC has the same TV universe now with Flash, Arrow, Constantine and Supergirl.

I hope they bring back Tom Welling Superman in a alternate Universe story(Flash is already doing it with Jay Garrick's) so why not at some point?

Next season of Arrow sounds like it'll be pretty sweet. Hopefully it actually turns out as good as it's hyped to be.

The actor's accent is patchy. Not sure why they hired a Welsh actor to play a character when there's loads of actors from a similar background to the character.

SO excited to see Matt Ryan is sticking around as Constantine in some capacity! Say what you want about his show, he perfectly nailed the character since day 1.
