well Well WELL, look at what NBC is bringing to the table:
Compared with the first attempt at the Hellblazer property, 2005’s Constantine:
Yeah, I think I’ll take NBC’s go at it, thanks (though I always dug Peter Stormare’s Satan). I wonder if they’ll be sticking with the supernatural aspects at all times or divert into the trickster/conman themes of the character, seen in arcs like “Hard Time” or “Freezes Over”?
Throughout the 300 issue run of Hellblazer, Constantine would refer to himself as “just a dabbler” when it came to magic and more of a trickster who would bullshit his way through most situations. Also curious if they’ll cut out the ever-present cigarette? Regardless, this looks super cool and is one of the few shows from the upcoming season that I’m actually looking forward to. Alright, squire?
