Constantine slowly gained the status of a cult film, thanks not only to the setting achieved by its director Francis Lawrence, but also to the interpretation that only an actor like Keanu Reeves could give the protagonist: John Constantine.
Years later there would be a television series for NBC that lasted only one season and that had some crossovers with Arrow and Legends of Tomorrow. However, the program ended there.
Now, and as part of the streaming wars, HBO Max is preparing a new Constantine series (via) that will be produced by Bad Robot, JJ Abrams’ production company for Warner Media, the house of HBO Max, WB Pictures, etcetera. And as another important detail, it seems that the series will be set not in the United States but in London by ensuring that its protagonist would be a “young Londoner”
Another detail is that the statement indicates that the protagonist will not be sought to be Caucasian, but rather the diversity of the character that has previously been played by Keanu Reeves in the film and by Matt Ryan in the first Constantine series will be sought.
For its part, HBO Max will arrive in Mexico and Latin America in June 2021, being one of the first countries to test the streaming platform outside the United States.
Sergio López Aguirre Stanley Kubrick once said “To have a broader vision, not only see good movies, but also the bad ones” obviously I listened to him in the second and it is very funny.
