    This Constantine actor is definitely better than Keanu; but he just doesn’t scream JC to me…still not quite right.

    Years ago, when they were first talking a movie or a HBO series, Julian Sands would have been PERFECT. I even kept telling people to get STING to play Constantine. I think he would have been a great choice too.

      Constantine would make an awesome HBO special Ian. Then we could get the Vertigo version of him. A John Constantine who isn’t using the word “cunt” in every other sentence just isn’t really Constantine. Also, he could be portrayed as the absolute selfish bastard that he’s supposed to be; something that I doubt the TV show is going to have the guts to show.

      • Insideman says:

        Yeah, Morlock… I think we are going to get the New 52 version of Constantine here– more of a CW Network show than anything else. I love the Supernatural TV series– and I think it is as valid as any other great TV show… But this is definitely NOT the John Constantine Hellblazer Vertigo character we all loved.

        • Morlock50 says:

          God, how many great stories where could have been used from Hellblazer? This could have been an intense horror show….but I’ll still check it out and hope for the HBO version of Y the last man or Preacher.

          That is if TPTB in DC want to acknowledge that 90’s Vertigo ever happened.

          • Morlock50 says:

            It just occurred to me that the characters who need to be grim and gritty, DC turns them into PG versions without bite. And great all-age characters like Captain Marvel (who I will never refer to as Shazam) are presented as grimdark.
