John Constantine will be returning to an R-rated property, but it will be before the character is rebooted for J.J. Abrams and HBO Max.
According to inside sources, Constantine is being planned to appear on The Sandman TV series on Netflix. Apparently, he will not be played by Matt Ryan, who had a short-lived NBC show as the character before transferring to Greg Berlanti's Arrowverse of DC programs on the CW. And, before anyone speculates, Keanu Reeves will not wear the trenchcoat again for The Sandman. Constantine won't be the only mainstream DC character that will appear on the series as Justice League villain Doctor Destiny will create demonic havoc at a diner as he did in Neil Gaiman's comic-book series. I'm hearing whispers of Zatanna and Wesley Dodds, the Golden Age Sandman, as well but nothing confirmed.
