A “Constantine” series is in early development at HBO Max, Variety has learned from sources.
The search is currently on for an actor to lead the series in the role of John Constantine, with Guy Bolton attached to write. According to sources, the show would tie in to the “Justice League Dark” series that is currently at the works at the streamer with J.J. Abrams executive producing via Bad Robot.
HBO Max declined to comment.
It has yet to be officially confirmed which DC characters would factor into the “Justice League Dark” series, but Constantine was a part of the team in the comics as were heroes like Swamp Thing, Madame Xanadu, Deadman, and Doctor Mist, among others.
John Constantine has been portrayed onscreen both in film and television in the past. The first live-action incarnation of the character was played by Keanu Reeves in the 2005 film “Constantine.” Matt Ryan then played the character in the NBC series “Constantine” before reprising the role in The CW series “Arrow” and “Legends of Tomorrow.”
