Constantine TV Series Trailer Is Surprisingly Exciting

Posted by Bob Muir on May 13, 2014 in Comic Books, Television |


Two weeks after I complained about DC and WB not taking full advantage of their comic adaptations, NBC put out this trailer for Constantine, a new TV series airing this fall based on the Hellblazer/Constantine comics, previously published under DC’s Vertigo imprint. And damn, this blows the trailer for Fox’s Gotham out of the water. Unlike the Keanu Reeves movie (which was enjoyable, but not actually a faithful adaptation), this looks like a real, well-made version of the original comics. Go on, watch this trailer and tell me you’re not excited to see a con man magician fight supernatural beasties as they creep into our world.

While I still believe that DC and WB are in a much weaker position than Marvel and its connected universe, I will admit that DC and WB’s model (i.e. almost every adaptation is separate) occasionally produces awesome results like this. (It also works better in this case, since Constantine generally did his own thing, despite nominally existing in the DC universe.) Again, this is just a trailer, but it’s got me far more excited than anything else DC and WB has been producing lately.
