If there is one character who has suffered the most during the “superhero TV boom” that’s been going on the last six years or so, it’s John Constantine. The character was put on NBC for a season that really resonated with fans, but not enough for NBC to renew it. Then, to show faith in the character, the CW brought him in for a guest spot on Arrow in Season 04. But, fans wanted more.
So, he got to be in the animated movie Justice League Dark (voiced by the actor who did the live-action take, Matt Ryan), and is about to get his own CW Seed series. He also guest starred in several episodes of Legends of Tomorrow (including one that aired last night). His chemistry was so immediate with the cast that fans begged for him to be made a full-time member. And…they might get their wish.
For Warner Bros and the CW are stating that IF Legends of Tomorrow gets a fourth season, John Constantine will be a full-time member of the cast. Now, you might be thinking, “Why are they saying “if”?” Well, the show isn’t renewed…yet. Ratings point to the show getting renewed, but as of right now, it’s not confirmed.
Still, IF this happens, and IF Constantine gets to be a mainstay in Legends, this would likely not just boost the show to an even higher level, it’ll be a payoff years in the making.
