I can imagine Constantine's bass-and-percussion-filled extended trailer got the crowd's collective heart pumping, as it offers a rounded look at what the spiritually unhinged series will bring to NBC this fall. Or at least what the pilot will bring.
San Diego Comic-Con officially kicks off a week from today, so the timing is perfect for Warner Bros. to unveil the designs for the collectible bags, which will be handed out to all registered attendees when they arrive to pick up their SDCC badges.
While other series may have felt pressured into reshooting parts of the pilot to replace Griffiths’ character Liv with Celaya’s Zed, Constantine’s producer team doesn’t think that’s necessary.
Constantine hasn’t even hit NBC’s schedule yet, and the supernatural series based on the comic book Hellblazer is already laced with problems. On Friday, we learned that actress Lucy Griffiths, who was set to play one of the leads in the series, will not be continuing on Constantine.

Ask any fan of the Hellblazer comic series to describe the central badass John Constantine, and one of the first things out of that person's mouth will be, “He’s got a lit cigarette.” But as you can imagine, such an unhealthy habit won't be making it to NBC when Constantine begins airing on Friday nights this fall.
There is an impressive amount of comic book content coming to television this year. In addition to returning shows like Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. and Arrow, the networks will be flooded with programming like Marvel Studios’ Agent Carter and DC’s Gotham, The Flash, and Constantine. Really, it’s a comic book fans dream, but if you just can’t wait and want to get an early look at some of those shows, I have some very good news for you.
Set your DVRs! NBC has announced its Fall 2014 TV premiere dates. And if you have a DVR that allows you to schedule things months in advance, I'm impressed.

NBC has released the first big trailer for Daniel Cerone's small screen adaptation of the DC comic Hellblazer. Titled after the lead character, John Constantine, Constantine will star Matt Ryan as a man who "specializes in giving hell... hell."

NBC just announced one hell of a series order, as they’re moving forward with darkly comedic thriller Constantine, an adaptation of the popular DC comic series Hellblazer.

Production is underway for Daniel Cerone and David S. Goyer's pilot adaptation of DC Comic's Constantine, and today NBC has given us our first look at the lead character. The photo shows us Matt Ryan at John Constantine, the con-man-turned-occult-detective who finds himself reluctantly thrust into the role of defending our world against dark forces from beyond.
It took about three months of development, but NBC is apparently ready to commit to the new Constantine project. Back in late September it was announced that the network was working on a show based around the DC Comics anti-hero, and today Deadline has learned that a pilot has been officially given the green light and will be moving forward.
