John Constantine is Coming to 'Arrow'

Matt Ryan will reprise his role, from the NBC series, to play John Constantine once again.

No Caption Provided

When NBC's Constantine was cancelled, it was quite the bummer for fans. After months of trying to find the show a home, nothing really worked out. However, today at the Television Critics Association Press Tour, it was announced that Matt Ryan, who played John Constantine, would be coming to Arrow. Here's a video of Matt Ryan making the announcement.

Not sure when this will happen, but we'll keep you updated as more develops.

It seems like this is going to be a one-episode deal, according to numerous reports on Twitter and John will be teaming up with Oliver. Hopefully, this will lead to bigger things.

@cobsohn: Also finally get to Dr. Fate maybe too. But if not just having Constantine being a recurring character in that universe would be great, and maybe get him a show back, but this time on the CW

I'm happy to hear this but I won't be "freakin' out" until I hear the CW is picking up Constantine. I still believe it was the 3rd best show last year behind Daredevil and The Flash.

Thank god there's still hope we can get the show back! But I would prefer him not being on CW I don't want a season of Contantine focused on some teenage love triangle.

I honestly think it was tied with The Flash but I think CW would butcher Constantine.

If the writers handling the Constantine episode are the ones that gave us Seasons 1 and 2 of Arrow, I'm excited. If it's the ones who gave us the mess that was season 3, I fear for Constantine. I think if there is any show on the CW Constantine should be tied to, it Supernatural.

Not sure why people are excited about CW getting Constantine. This is the channel that aims towards the Twilight, Teen Mom crowd. CW is $hit along with all the shows it craps out. Constantine belongs on HBO or at least AMC. At least they could do the character justice.

Squee! So much squee. Wish I could be more articulate than that, but oh well. Glad they were able to save the Constantine character if not his show. ;D

@birdman400: It's like JLD, but NOT like Hellblazer, is not even close to that.

It's shame they are saying 'one time deal. Hopefully it'll increase viewership enough in eyes of whoever. So they sort something long term and that segues into a necro show for Constantine. I don't even watch Arrow and I'll be watching now.

Saying that. Let's see if they water him down even more though.

@justice_teen: weren't both those shows on the cw? they seem to have a decent track record with magic shows

Magic isn't gonna cut it for Hellblazer to get a show on the CW. For that he's gonna need some...

pretty white kids with problems. How funny is it that MadTV cracked their system around 15 years ago?

He should join Legends of Tomarrow so they can drop Cold & Heatwave. Hopefully we can get some more magical characters like Zatanna, Raven, Mary-Marvel & Jennifer Morgan, doing mostly naked rituals like kissing eachother while licking the Helmet of Fate while Zuariel & Shazam watch.

& can we PLEASE get Morgan Le Fey & that cool golden armor on the show so Arrow & Flash have to work with Ray & Rip Hunter to save Supergirl?
