Could John Constantine appear in Fox’s Lucifer series?

March 13th, 2018 by Marc Comments

Oh, John Constantine – or perhaps actor Matt Ryan – your fandom truly knows now boundaries.

After The Constantine NBC series was cackled prematurely, the fandowm fought hard and the character made it into The CW’s DC universe, appearing in Arrow way back in Season 4 (here) and he’s also making a return to that universe later this season of Legends of Tomorrow (here)… oh, and he’s getting an animated series too (here) which debuts on CWSeed on March 24th and will consist of 10 minute long episodes.

But now the fans seem to have latched onto another excuse to have Ryan portray John Constantine, this time in Fox’s Lucifer series.


Well, the Lucifer series IS based on the DC/Vertigo comic and the two characters have met in the comics:

So there’s definitely a way the character could appear.. but would he?

Well, a fan asked Lucifer, played by Tom Ellis, showrunner Joe Henderson if it might happen on Twitter and, to his credit, he seemed open to the idea, however was also aware of the sheer difficulty of making it happen:

“Honestly, now that he’s a part of the Arrow-verse (which I think is so cool!), I’m not even sure if it’d be possible. Also we would need a story worthy of that combo. So not this season, but you never know! (super unhelpful reply, I know)”

So, what would it mean if it happened? Well, it would unofficially mean that Lucifer is actually set in The Arrowverse too… and, while I must admit I’ve not watched Lucifer, the completist in me finds the idea very exciting, however impossible it would be.

So that would leave Gotham and I, Zombie still existing outside continuity… but, em, we could definitely see Constantine existing in those shows too.

Could John Constantine become the thread that ties it all together? Well, wouldn’t that be a thing.
