Tracing back to 2005, Constantine was an unsurmountable let-down where fans were dismayed in seeing John Constantine’s British origins being ditched in favour of making him American. Though the movie seemed to be crummy in a glance, Peter Stormare and Tilda Swinton excellently depicted Lucifer and Gabriel which was brought live with imaginative visual effects.
Amending with meticulousness: A new Constantine
But now buzz has surfaced that the decade-old character might not be completely forgotten. Sources close to WGTC said that Warner Bros. is planning to bring John Constantine into the DCEU! Initially, one idea was to have a comic-accurate Constantine on the screen, with earlier reports saying their focus was on Legion and Beauty and the Beast star Dan Stevens for the part which seems to have fallen through, though, asking for a re-evaluation at present.
The story of vengeance: Gabriel
Reports indicate that the DCEU version will be both a soft-reboot and a sequel to the 2005 film, with both Keanu Reeves and Tilda Swinton in early talks to return. Though neither has officially signed on the deal yet, if the studio can lock them down, the plot would see Gabriel out for revenge against Constantine.
While the finale of the 2005 movie saw Constantine manipulating Gabriel into losing her divine protection, allowing Lucifer to burn her wings and make her mortal, the new movie will apparently see her trying to regain her divinity in order to bring down John Constantine.
Hoping For The Better
Perhaps Warner Bros. is just hoping to get Reeves in a comic book movie while he’s hot. And so, the older Reeves gets, the more interesting he will be as an actor, which certainly professes in being a better Constantine today.
