Now Constantine might be getting a show on NBC (deadline.com) from Daniel Cerone and David S. Goyer.

I never thought I'd say this but soon there may be too many comic book shows on television.

We're looking at a landscape in 2015 that at present could consist of:

Arrow
Constantine
The Flash
Gotham
Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.

What'll be announced tomorrow? Booster Gold? Amazon? Hey, wait. Those were already announced and still presumably in the works too.

Seriously? Didn't the Keanu Reeves movie bomb?

Then again, the Buffy the Vampire Slayer flick was horrid, and that show was on forever.....

Nope. $100 million budget, $230 million box office.

As of right now, it has the 439th best worldwide gross.

Constantine is one of my guilty pleasure movies. Everytime it comes on I watch it. As for the TV show, I would give it a try.



Life is hilariously cruel.

I really liked Francis Lawrence's Constantine. (backofthehead.com) Hell, I still like it.

Constantine's competition as a series wouldn't be other comic book shows, it would be all the other magic shows that are on the air. Supernatural could still be around. There's American Horror Story. Grimm (is that still around?). Probably others too. Oh, Sleepy Hollow now. Plenty of scary magic shows on TV.

Speaking of comic TV shows, Bendis's Powers seems trapped in development hell. Are they shooting the second pilot yet?

Constantine would be better for HBO or Showtime than network TV.



Ma'am, there is only one God, and I don't think He dresses like that.

Powers is pretty much doomed at this point if all the other hero shows out there. To be fair, by the time it comes out it will be old hat. NBC has gotten a bit dark with Hannibal and Grimm, so it may work.

As long as they can do it justice, unlike say, the Dresden Files series...

My wife and I were tossing around casting ideas for this (because what else can you do when you hear such news) and came to the following conclusions:

If Constantine is British: Jason Isaacs (Lucius Malfoy in the Harry Potter series, Awake)

If Constantine is American: Sean Patrick Flanery (Boondock Saints)

As long as he is British, a chain-smoker, and pessimistic I'm all on board. At least two of the three.



I believe in The Shield....
