Constantine (2014 - Present)

John Constantine is a man waging war against the forces of darkness — from both within himself and the outside world. An irreverent, working-class con man and occult expert, he’s an experienced exorcist and demonologist with an extensive list of supernatural contacts, with their own paranormal talents and abilities.

Following the aftermath of a tragic incident, Constantine has voluntarily checked himself into an asylum and sworn off investigating matters of the supernatural. But when a cryptic message calls him out to reluctantly resume his old life, he finds himself saving the life of a young woman, Liv, whom he’s never met — but is connected to in a very important way. For Liv is something of a human compass for dark forces — able to locate and see the supernatural world that the rest of us cannot. With these forces gathering power in the world, Constantine and Liv ally themselves with Manny, a rogue warrior angel, and Chas, Constantine’s giant childhood protector — the only friend who’s managed to stay alive. Based upon characters published by DC Entertainment and executive produced by Daniel Cerone (The Mentalist) and David S. Goyer (Man of Steel, The Dark Knight films), CONSTANTINE reflects the lore of the fan-favorite comic, combining noirish storytelling with the evolving mythology of John Constantine, a morally challenged character who doesn’t come down on the side of either good or evil…but ultimately might be the only thing defending us against the dark forces from beyond.

Constantine - Official Trailer

Based on the wildly popular comic book series Hellblazer from DC Comics, seasoned demon hunter and master of the occult John Constantine specializes in giving hell... hell. Armed with a ferocious knowledge of the dark arts and his wickedly naughty wit, he fights the good fight - or at least he did. With his soul already damned to hell, he's decided to leave his do-gooder life behind. But when demons target Liv, the daughter of one of Constantine's oldest friends, he's reluctantly thrust back into the fray - and he'll do whatever it takes to save her. Before long, it's revealed that Liv's "second sight," an ability to see the worlds behind our world and predict supernatural occurrences, is a threat to a mysterious new evil that's rising in the shadows. And now it's not just Liv who needs protection; the angels are starting to get worried too. So, together, Constantine and Liv must use her power and his skills to travel the country, find the demons that threaten our world - and send them back where they belong. After that, who knows... maybe there's hope for him and his soul after all.

From Executive Producer David S. Goyer (Batman Begins, The Dark Knight Rises) and director Neil Marshall (Game of Thrones, The Descent) comes a dark new thriller that proves fighting evil is a hell of a job.

DC on TV: The Comics Behind the Shows

If you caught Blair Herter’s conversation with Geoff Johns in this morning’s new episode of “DC All Access” (or if you’ve been following the entertainment news over the past few months), you know that DC Entertainment currently has five television shows in development. While some of them are based on well-known DC characters, a few focus on characters that are a bit more obscure. However, they all have their roots in serialized comics.

DC Entertainment Co-Publisher Dan DiDio on the conclusion of HELLBLAZER

"We're supremely proud of Vertigo's HELLBLAZER, one of the most critically-acclaimed series we've published. Issue #300 concludes this chapter of Constantine’s epic, smoke-filled story in style and with the energy, talent and creativity fans have come to expect from Peter Milligan, Giuseppe Camuncoli and Stefano Landini. And no one should worry that John is going to hang-up his trenchcoat - he lives on in March, in the pages of the all-new DC Comics New 52 ongoing series, CONSTANTINE, by writer Robert Venditti and artist Renato Guedes."  - Dan DiDio, DC Entertainment Co-Publisher
