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.
All is right with the world now that DC’s Legends of Tomorrow is running new episodes again. The series about D-list DC superheroes teaming up to fix time discrepancies (and sometimes create them) is arguably the highlight of The CW’s DC lineup, with its light breezy tone and chemistry between the characters. Let me put it this way…LoT is the only show of its brand where I can watch an entire episode without ever thinking a subplot is wasting my time or a particular character is a drag.
Ever since his failed NBC show, John Constantine has been asked to be in the CWverse via fans, and they go their wish in Season 04 of Arrow. But…it was only one episode, and he didn’t have that big of a role. So, with the arrival of Legends of Tomorrow, fans asked that the demon hunter/con man be allowed to come to that show. And the team were all for it, and it appears as though that’s going to happen in this upcoming season.
Pretty cool, huh? Looks like it’s going to be about some kind of giant. Like, a really rich giant. That eats castles.
