UPDATE: It has now been confirmed that Constantine will show up in episode 9 and 10 of Legends of Tomorrow!
Comicbook.com reports that Legends of Tomorrow fans will be getting their long-awaited wish: Matt Ryan will be back as John Constantine in live action sometime this season!
Constantine originally aired thirteen episodes on NBC in 2014 and 2015, then was sadly canceled. Still, Constantine made a special guest appearance on in the fourth season of CW’s other DC hit Arrow. Oliver called in his old friend to help Legends’ Sara Lance (Caity Lotz) get her soul back after a Lazarus Pit resurrection had gone awry.
The character, portrayed by Ryan, will get his animated show on CW Seed in early 2018. A new trailer for the CW Seed series was released today which you can see below.
But now he will also be seen in live-action as he will guest star in an episode of the third season of Legends of Tomorrow. Not much is known about his appearance yet, but according to showrunner Phil Klemmer, fans can expect to see Constantine performing an exorcism on the show this season.
Fans have long been hoping for a Constantine guest appearance, and Klemmer now says it would be “a crime” not to have him on. Ryan can also be seen voicing the character in this year’s Justice League Dark animated movie.
Legends Of Tomorrow Season 3 premieres on Tuesday, October 10 at 9/8c on The CW!
