Following an unofficial image that debuted just yesterday, NBC has released the first official image of Matt Ryan as John Constantine for their upcoming series based on the DC/Vertigo character.
Executive producer Davis S. Goyer had this to say:
“I’ve been a fan of John Constantine since he was first introduced in 1985. This Constantine, envisioned by Neil Marshall and embodied by Matt Ryan, looks like he sprang directly from the comics’covers. Fans old and new are going to be in for a treat.”
The cast includes Matt Ryan as the titular character, Constantine will also feature Lucy Griffiths as Liv, Harold Perrineau as the angel Manny and Charles Halford as Constantine’s friend Chas. Written by Daniel Cerone (The Mentalist) from a story by Cerone and Davis S. Goyer, the pilot for “Constantine” is currently in production with Neil Marshall (The Descent) at the helm.
