Well, we all fought the good fight, but it looks like Constantine in now officially in trouble as The CW, the network that runs Arrow, Flash and soon Legends of Tomorrow has officially turned down the chance tto pick up Constantine, putting him their DC uninverse.
And, to be honest, we’re really sad about it. Show runner Daniel Cerone Tweeted earlier, admitting defeat (below). Does this mean Constantine is gone altogether? Well, it’s hard to say, presumably we could see Matt Ryan pop up in Arrow somewhere down the line as Constantine or maybe someone else could pick it up, but we get the feeling this was its best shot.
At least for now.

The CW has compounded the defeat by announcing its 2015/2016 schedule which, while fun (Legends of Tomorrow has us buzzing here) could have been just a little sweeter…
The CW will launch its 2015-16 broadcast season in October, with premiere dates to be announced later.
