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.
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.
David "co-writer of Batman Begins, The Dark Knight, The Dark Knight Rises, Man of Steel, and Batman vs. Superman" S. Goyer's Constantine has found its NBC pilot star. Welsh actor Welsh actor Matt Ryan of Criminal Minds: Suspect Behavior is reportedly finalizing a deal to star as the show's Hellblazing titular hero, 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 Constantineis 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.
