DC Entertainment’s Constantine, iZombie and The Flash TV Shows All Get Series Pickups

Untitled-2

To paraphrase the immortal Xzibit, "Yo dawg, we heard you like DC Comics, so we put DC Comics in your TV so you can watch comics while you read comics."

Two different networks announced today that they're picking up three different shows based on DC and Vertigo properties: Constantine on NBC, iZombie and The Flash on The CW. With Arrow headed into its third season at The CW and Gotham already in production at Fox, this fall will be filled with hour-long dramas based on DC Comics.  Industry scuttlebutt is that DC Chief Creative Officer Geoff Johns is the primary force behind getting these shows this far, making today a pretty good day for the longtime superhero writer.

Not everybody's stoked on The Flash's crimson TV costume, and so far The CW's iZombie sounds like a pretty big departure from its Vertigo source material, but judging by the first photo of Matt Ryan from the filming of NBC's Constantine pilot, the show's main character will be easily recognizable to those who've read Hellblazer or the New 52-ified Constantine comic -- especially compared to the 2005 Constantine movie.

Now that NBC's Constantine series has its title character in place in the form of Criminal Minds' Matt Ryan, it's filling out the rest of the cast with a few actors who have appeared in shows that share Constantine's occult, macabre, and supernatural overtones.

Charles Halford, who True Detective fans know as the memorable Reggie Ledoux, will play John Constantine's old friend and confidant Chas. Also joining the cast are Lost's Harold Perrineau, who will play an angel named Manny tasked with overseeing Constantine's actions, and True Blood's Lucy Griffiths, who will portray the female lead, Liv (just like The CW's Vertigo Comic adaptation iZombie will star a woman in supernatural turmoil - get it? Liv? Live? harharhar), a woman marked for death by a demon.

The Saga of The Swamp Thing 37 John Constantine

Last week it was announced that NBC is developing a new TV series based on the DC Comics character John Constantine, best known as the star of Vertigo perennial Hellblazer. The television project is helmed by writer/executive producers Daniel Cerone and David S. Goyer. It's a potentially exciting prospect, but it appears that Constantine's creators may only see a piece of the pie if the show actually goes to broadcast - and the identity of the creators of record who may benefit is somewhat unclear.

It's unclear just which version of the character might manifest, but John Constantine is headed for TV at NBC. Deadline reports that a Constantine drama has sold to NBC with penalty, meaning that if the pilot doesn’t make it to the small screen, the network will have to shell out a pretty penny to none other than writer/executive producers Daniel Cerone (The Mentalist) and David S. Goyer, known in these parts as the co-writer of Batman Begins, The Dark Knight, The Dark Knight Rises, Man of Steel, the upcoming Batman vs. Superman.

Trinity War Correspondence, Week Three: Batman Forgets To Ask Nicely and The British and The Bold Team-Up [SPOILERS]

CA_TWC_Week3

The story so far? When the hero Shazam entered Khandaq in order to spread the ashes of his fallen enemy Black Adam in the sands of the villain's home country, the Justice League (Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, those guys) sprang into action, hoping to avoid an international incident by kicking Shazam out of Khandaq. At the same time, the Justice League of America, a team of second-stringers assembled by the government agency specifically for the task of taking down the other Justice League, arrive with the same idea.

In the midst of all the arguing that ensues, Superman suddenly loses control and uses his heat-vision to kill Dr. Light, a member of the rival of America League. Superman surrenders himself and is imprisoned by Amanda Waller, leader of the ARGUS (Strategic Hazard Intervention Espionage Logistics Directorate) and the of America squad, and all the Leaguers convene to try and figure out what exactly what happened between Superman's eyeballs and Dr. Light's face.
