Well this is kind of disappointing

There is an article over comic book.com I believe the website is called it says that Matt Ryan wants to play Constantine in the TV show Swamp Thing what I mean by being disappointed is it means The character won’t be in the first season. Since I am i’m assuming shows in post production by now

But I hope they cast him as Constantine

I hope so too. I really like him as Constantine. I wish they’d do another animated film of his. He did the voice for Constantine too.

I hope he gets enough screen time to merit his show to return. Maybe even set up a Justice League Dark movie

Would not be surprised if they are still filming some episodes, but I wouldn’t know. Although I do completely agree that he should definitely appear as Constantine. With all due respect to Keanu Reeves (who did give a good performance I thought in Constantine), Matt Ryan plays the character so perfectly and true to the comics, especially in Legends of Tomorrow, that I can’t imagine anyone who could possibly do him better justice.

Surely, there exists another actor somewhere who would be amazing as Constantine.
However, Matt Ryan IS Constantine, as far as I’m concerned.
And who’s better as Constantine than Constantine himself?

Sure, I love Constantine, and Matt has Ryan captured him perfectly. But I really think it’s for the best that the first season of Swamp Thing focuses solely on Swamp Thing.

Once more for the DC execs in the back: I’ll watch just about any DC vehicle starring Matt Ryan as Constantine. Put him in Titans, put him in Doom Patrol, put him in Swamp Thing, I’ll watch it all.

We have no idea if he will be in season 1 or not, he could end up in the final scene of the season finale as a teaser for season 2. Still holding out hope for a new Constantine show here on the DCU

Dude absolutely CRUSHES it as Constantine. I’m sure 30 years from now, when some new bloke is playing the role, I’ll still pine for good ol’ Matt Ryan. I’d raise my subscription price $.50 a month for a season 2 of Constantine!

I wouldn’t count on seeing him in it. They aren’t connected to the Arrowverse.

It all depends on what his contract with CW network allows him to do. Because he wants to be in Swamp Thing. It’s where the character started

Maybe it’ll spin off into a Justice League Dark show?
