There is a great battle beginning to happen between Marvel and DC on both the big screen and the small screen, with both companies now bringing out plenty of television shows to air alongside their movies that are being lined up in the coming years. One of the most exciting DC shows that we are looking forward to seeing is Constantine and the new trailer has got us even more excited.
Those of you who remember the Constantine movie with Keanu Reeves will remember just how poor that film was but, this new Constantine trailer alone already looks better than that. Constantine will see actor Matt Ryan (Criminal Minds) in the lead role, with actress Lucy Griffiths (True Blood) playing his love interest.
We have no doubt that most of you are familiar with the story behind Constantine, but the official synopsis for the Constantine television series is, "A man struggling with his faith is haunted by the sins of his past but is suddenly thrust into the role of defending humanity from the gathering forces of darkness."
As well as starring Matt Ryan in the lead role of Constantine, with Lucy Griffiths playing his love interest, the supporting cast for Constantine is also fairly strong with the likes of Harold Perrineau, Charles Halford, and Miles Anderson, among the many others to appear in the series. Constantine will premiere on NBC this Fall.
While we wait for Constantine to premiere on NBC later in the year, feel free to take a couple of minutes or so to take a look at Matt Ryan, Lucy Griffiths and co. in the new Constantine trailer below. We thought it was pretty good but what do you think?
