While the Constantine show was cancelled after only one season, DC gave the demon-hunting character a second chance in a crossover episode of Arrow, and are now bringing new life to the character with a CW Seed series. Now, fans can get their first look at what the art style for the show will look like with a poster from the New York Comic Con.
Featuring an art style similar to the likes of CW Seed’s Vixen and the upcoming Freedom Fighters: The Ray, Constantine will take the magic-using anti-hero to the animated realm early next year. Collider has shared the poster for the series at the New York Comic Con, which can be seen below:
The show’s premise is as follows:
This all-new animated series from Warner Bros. Animation and Blue Ribbon Content follows DC’s popular comic book character John Constantine (voiced by the live action series star Matt Ryan), a seasoned demon hunter and master of the occult. Armed with an arcane knowledge of the dark arts and a wicked wit, he fights the good fight. With his soul already damned to hell, he’ll do whatever it takes to protect the innocent. With the balance of good and evil on the line, Constantine uses his skills to face the supernatural terrors 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.
Constantine raises Hell in 2018. Matt Ryan returns to provide the voice of the title character.
6 Superheroes Who Deserve Animated Shows
One of the greatest tools in the craft of filmmaking is the often overlooked art of animation. Animation is a tool that can bring any drawable creation to life in vibrant ways without the limitations of a budget or having to find a way to pull something off in real life. Animation can be as far out and unhinged as it wants to be.
The art of the comic book is very similar to that of animation. Comics often show heroes doing things that could never happen in the real world. As much as live action can capture a lot of these moments, animation allows for much more freedom. Animated superhero shows have been popular for quite some time now, and some have even received critical acclaim for their depiction of comic book characters and honoring the source material.
With all this in mind, I decided to write about 6 heroes who deserve their own animated shows. Click Next to get started!
