Back in 2005 DC and Warner Bros. dipped their toes in the mysticism of the DC universe when they released the Keanu Reeve’s led film, Constantine. Since it’s release, a slew of passionate fans have been pushing for a sequel to no avail. If you remember, back in June, the Spoilerverse released an article titled #PausedNotStopped: Rise of the DCEU. In it we revealed some intriguing information which stated discussions had taken place within the DC/Warner Bros. brass for a potential Keanu reprisal as Hellblazer.
It appears that Keanu Reeves, yes Keanu, has had talks with WB about reprising his role of John Constantine for an upcoming project. While details are scarce this is an exciting development that should not go unnoticed. His 2005 portrayal is one of the bright spots in a time period of simply horrendous comic book films. There is also talk about a JJ Abrams produced Constantine movie. Whether these are one and the same or not has yet to be determined. Let’s just hope something pans out and we get an announcement soon! – posted on June 30th, spoilerverse.com
Today it seems that reveal as been confirmed by one of the co-stars of the 2005 film. Peter Stormare, who played Satan in the movie, posted a photo praising his portrayal on Instagram with a simple message saying, “Sequel In The Works”
From the moment Stormare posted this revelation the internet has burst into a frenzy over the possibility of a sequel. The question now is, with Keanu busy with a slew of projects including sequels to John Wick and the Matrix will he find the time to join the DC Multiverse?
Are you excited at this possibility?
