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.

It's unclear just which version of the character might manifest, but John Constantine is headed for TV at NBC.

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.

‘Hellblazer’ #300 Marks The End Of An Era For Constantine And Vertigo

hellblazer-lede

With the 300th and final issue of Vertigo's Hellblazer, out this week, several tumblers shift and lock into place. John Constantine moves to the New 52 on a full-time basis, with a new title beginning in March; the reset button is pushed on his continuity, and the most writer-driven character of the last thirty years is yanked from the comfort and promise of a Mature Readers label and forced to grow up again in a PG-13 world; and the longest-running title in the Vertigo line concludes a twenty year run, as the imprint focuses exclusively on creator-owned comics. It's a sad time for misfits everywhere, as Hellblazer is o
