There hasn’t been a lot of promotional media for the upcoming NBC series Constantine, but hopefully that doesn’t mean anything as far as its quality goes. I’m cautiously optimistic about this one. The Keanu Reeves Constantine movie wasn’t terrible, but it wasn’t exactly faithful to the source material. This series looks a heck of a lot closer to the comic books, and the first episode is being directed by Neil “Battles of Blackwater” Marshall, which could be awesome. But you never know with this kind of genre television. If it isn’t cheesy right out of the gate, it might quickly devolve. For now, though, Constantine has my attention.
Constantine premieres on October 24, 2014.
