While we have reported on rumours that Matt Ryan might get another stab at playing Constantine in future seasons of Legends of Tomorrow, news has come in that we may be wise to not hold our breath.

Arrow showrunner and executive producer Marc Guggenheim discussed John Constantine’s future in the Arrow-verse and, sadly, it sounds like it has already ended: “Back when Constantine was on, we were talking about a crossover. Then ‘Constantine’ wasn’t on, so we stopped talking about a crossover.

“It took a while. I think it was actually something Matt Ryan and Stephen [Amell] started talking [about]. It was always in the cards. When we were given the character, we were given the character with the understanding and the agreement that this is a one-off.”

Now, Guggenheim does state that at the time it was a one-off which doesn’t exactly mean the character cannot come back but reading between the lines we reckon it’s no longer looking good for Constantine in Legends of Tomorrow.

Is it enough knowing he exists in that universe? Well… that’s debatable.

#SaveConstantineAgain, anyone?

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
