“Yeah, we really want to do it. It’s something we’ve been talking to DC about”, Mericle said, before adding that there were some issues they needed to work out first.
The fourth season of “Arrow” has already confirmed the likes of Anarky and Mr. Terrific, so could Constantine actually be next?
“Arrow” stars Stephen Amell as Oliver Queen/Arrow, Katie Cassidy as Dinah “Laurel” Lance, David Ramsey as John Diggle, Willa Holland as Thea Queen, Emily Bett Rickards as Felicity Smoak, John Barrowman as Malcom Merlyn and Paul Blackthorne as Detective Lance.
After a rocky start, Constantine developed into a pretty solid show for a lot of fans that stuck with it and that just made it all the harder when it ended up getting canceled by NBC. “That was and is on the table”, he previously stated after the show was taken off the air in May. But then, attention turned from crossovers to cancellation, and we didn’t hear much else.
But the term “political things” might be too dismissive of the complications surrounding this particular crossover.
The network’s president, Mark Pedowitz, went on the record this past May in response to the idea. It’d also serve as a nice goodbye for the character (or heck, maybe a doorway to even more appearances?) and the fans left hanging by Constantine’s own cliffhanger finale. He’s an incredibly talented actor, especially when he’s being sinister, and it helps for a show like Arrow that he doesn’t really look like a real person. A nice ominous touch, given the promise of a character resurrection via Arrow, no?
NBC’s cult favorite Constantine might be gone, but it’s not forgotten.
