Now The Magic Begins With NBC’s Constantine Trailer
Now as the series commitments are getting confirmed, the trailers for these comic book show adaptations are hitting quick. Now the Constantine trailer has hit the scene giving us our first glimpse as to what the series will be like this fall on NBC. I’ll link the trailer below as I just got a youtube link to embed in here, sadly at this stage it is region locked but there is a solution! Thanks to Ari of Comics and Cookies I have a region free trailer that I can share with you good people across the rest of the world, check it out here. Either way, you can watch the trailer and we can all chat about it from there, so links in two places and after you’re done watching head on below and I’ll share more of my reactions. I’ll be here, just watch the trailer, enjoy and learn more about the Constantine show.
Now that hopefully everyone is caught up, time for Constantine trailer reaction time! I’m not a die hard Hellblazer fan but I’ve read enough to see that at least they got the look right. The people working on this show are wanting to connect the comic and television worlds to satisfy as many people as possible. Take note of this, Matt Ryan as John Constantine is an improvement over Keanu Reeves, a dramatic one. Captures the personality, wit, conversational tone, and he looks the part and that helps in believing he is Constantine. I was initially afraid that the show was going to try to be Constantine by way of The CW’s Supernatural and the trailer ends that speculation quick. Now in the full show I don’t know what we’ll be in for but at least in the trailer there’s an immense amount of promise in the full show.
Impressing me even further is the fact that NBC is scheduling Constantine after Grimm on Friday nights. I had a feeling they were going to do it as it just made sense and NBC did the the smart play. As I was thinking about all these comic shows, NBC’s best bet for Constantine to go over with the audience was to pair it with Grimm. The audiences will go together smoothly, at least let’s hope so for the sake of Constantine. I’m optimistic about Constantine as it looks like a good show if it lives up to the promise of the trailer. Response wise sounds positive so I’m happy to see where this goes from that rocking trailer.
