Matt Ryan to appear as John Constantine in DC’s Legends of Tomorrow
Following the cancellation of his NBC series, Matt Ryan reprised his role of John Constantine in an episode of The CW’s Arrow and now he’s set to return once again as the conniving dark arts master. The Hollywood Reporter brings word that Ryan will appear in a two-episode arc of DC’s Legends of Tomorrow in 2018, following their four-way crossover with Arrow, The Flash, and Supergirl.
Series showrunner Phil Klemmer reveals: “His appearance in episode 310 will involve the following: a revisiting of Arrow season four and the events following that season’s finale episode; a confrontation with this season’s Big Bad on Legends — the name we’ve only heard whispered until now Mallus; some hot sex — something that has been in short supply on the Waverider thus far in season three; and Damien Darhk (Neil McDonough), because how can you do an episode about dark magic and not have Damien Darhk? More than anything, the episode promises to be scary as you know what — tonally it’s The Exorcist meets One Flew Over The Cuckoo’s Nest. Demonic possession in a mental institution, what’s not to love?”
Ryan’s character will also have his very own animated series, simply titled Constantine, that will air on the digital platform CW Seed early next year. You can watch the first clip from the series by clicking here.
DC’s Legends of Tomorrow stars Victor Garber, Brandon Routh, Arthur Darvill, Caity Lotz, Ciarra Renee, Franz Drameh, Nick Zano, and Dominic Purcell. The series premieres on Tuesday, October 10 at 9 PM on The CW. You can check out a brand-new promo for the series in the player below!
Based on the characters from DC, DC’s Legends of Tomorrow is from Bonanza Productions Inc. in association with Berlanti Productions and Warner Bros. Television, with executive producers Greg Berlanti, Marc Guggenheim, Andrew Kreisberg, Phil Klemmer and Sarah Schechter.
