In another stunning TV-related announcement from Warner Brothers, it looks like Swamp Thing's "supernatural advisor" -- the notorious John Constantine -- might be next in line for a television drama. Deadline is reporting that NBC is moving to develop a new series from David S. Goyer and Daniel Cerone based on the character.
There's certainly a rich history to pull from, as the character was created by Alan Moore and Steve Bissette in the midst of their Swamp Thing run, and he then went on to star in Vertigo's longest running series to date, Hellblazer, which just ended earlier this year with issue #300. The character has since been reintegrated into the DC Universe and currently appears in both Justice League Dark and his own solo book, Constantine.
This news comes only days after WB revealed Gotham over at FOX, and it remains to be seen what ties, if any, Constantine the show might have to the Justice League Dark movie that Guillermo del Toro has long been touting.
And of course, who can forget John Constantine's last live-action appearance in the 2005 Keanu Reeves flick?
