NBC Gets Constantine Right?

New Constantine image released by NBC.

There’s been a lot of talk about the Vertigo Comics character John Constantine. Not only did the character see a move from Vertigo to DC Comics, but there’s also a television series in the works. I’ll be honest, the Keanu Reeves movie sort of had me doubting that a television series would fly, but if this latest image released by the network is accurate, I think the Constantine series might get the Hellblazer character right.

This certainly gives me more hope for the series. Let’s hope NBC keeps the dark tone of the comics and does the character justice. Matt Ryan looks just about perfect as John Constantine here:

Also, for those not familiar with the comics. This is not a rip-of of Castiel from Supernatural. Castiel’s costume was actually inspired by John Constantine’s look, which dates back to 1985.
