While it seems everyone passed on Constantine, it’s learned Matt Ryan’s future may not be over as the Hellblazer as IGN caught up with Arrow executive producer Wendy Mericle and Amell at Comic-Con who offer some hope.
“Yeah, we really want to do it,” Mericle said of having Constantine appear on Arrow. “It’s something we’ve been talking to DC about, and it’s just a question of some political things, but also the actor’s schedule. We’re trying to work it out, but we don’t know 100 percent if it’s going to happen.”
“Fingers crossed,” added Amell.
“But we’re really optimistic and we would love to have him,” Mericle offered.
It’s still unknown exacly why Constantine didn’t get picked up elsewhere as the series did have higher ratings than some of the CW shows. Honestly, I’m almost beginning to wonder if it’s something more to do with Warner Bros. internally and possibly either David Goyer, who seems to be out of the picture as of late, or maybe the planned Justice League Dark movie, which will feature a Constantine as well. WB already put the kibosh on the Suicide Squad on TV, maybe something similar went down with Constantine?
