For a character who had his own show canceled after just one season, years later Matt Ryan’s take on DC’s snarky English spellweaver John Constantine is still surprisingly flourishing. Along with guest-starring on Arrow and a full-time turn on Legends of Tomorrows, Ryan’s Constantine even got his own animated show—which is now being turned into a movie.
The CW launched the first five episodes of its Constantine series on its CW Seed streaming service earlier this year, but it left Constantine’s latest adventure—helping an old friend save his daughter from a mysterious demonic coma after a tragic accident—unfinished. Now, on top of the material released as those five episodes, it’s been turned into Constantine: City of Demons, a 90-minute movie that actually finishes the story the show began. [Source]
