Official Trailer for NBC's Constantine

Check out this 3 minute trailer for the upcoming show.

On Fridays, this fall, NBC is launching the long-awaited new series Constantine, based off the hit Vertigo comic. Here's a full, 3 minute trailer for the upcoming series.

It seems like the only thing missing from this trailer is Papa Midnite. One thing is for sure, they're going to give this show a creepy, horror vibe, and many fans will truly appreciate that Constantine is being played by a Brit.

What do you guys think about the upcoming series? Will you watch it?

Yes sir that looks amazing

Posted by Wardishy

I'm not as familiar with Constantine as some, but I'm still looking forward to this series.

Also @g_man; I saw another clip this morning where he pronounces his own name. It's "Constan-TEEN". Thought you might be interested. :)

I never imagined they would make something that look so right.

I will miss the cigarettes though. Beggars can't be choosers I suppose.

That looks good But I have 1 important complain that if I am wrong my turn it to amazing.

My problem is that Constantine looks like he gives a f**k, and I don't really sense that snarky douchebag in him, but then again this is a 3 minute trailer, so I could be wrong.

This looks so right!

Also, why he can't be shown smoking? Is there a law that forbids it on TV shows?

Edited by 2cool4fun

@nahuel: I think TV's have to restrict smoking scenes, and having a main character smoke is not really restricting it.

Wow, I'm really impressed by the upcoming DC shows. I'm happy that DC might be able to exist well on TV!

Posted by Nahuel

@2cool4fun: Thanks for the clarification. Hope they at least insinuate he smokes (a lot) so we see him struggling with cancer...

The second clip crushed any hope for it being good.

This show will get smoked out since there's no smoking. =P

I'll still give it a try.

But about Preacher...Seth Rogen.

This seems promising, but the voice seems a bit off. Hopefully Constantine won't growl every line of dialogue...

How much you wanna bet NBC is going to cancel it later on? They've been doing a good job so far. Anyways this looks interesting

Pure crap

No way could this ever be dark enough to work.

Meh! Keanu played the part better IMO.

Edited by judasnixon

Three things I would like to see in the first season.....

1. The female lead dies, because all of John's friends get killed.

2. He goes back to london.

3. As the season goes on his coat gets dirtier and more worn out....

Are you serious? There's one trailer and a 1,5 minute long clip. How can you even judge?

Yes to all of these...also because the actress doesn't seem to act well...

He's probably from the future and saw the whole series!

I thought the pronounciation of his last name was "Constan-tiiine" not "Constan-teen" or am I wrong

Edward Kenway - Pirate, Assassins, badass now Paranormal investigator

You're right, they just couldn't get the name right the second time either.

@billy_batson: I know this is nitpicking but thats gonna be abit annoying to hear throughout the series -_-

I don't see it as nitpicking. It's his name ffs. How can they not get it right?

Posted by those_eyes

@inferiorego: @billy_batson: They showed enough clip to where you get a feel for how he will be. Just seems like this version is too soft and acts like he cares too much.

Posted by CantDance93

Looks good!

Edited by JonSmith

I'm... intrigued. Blonde, smarta**, Constantine is a good start. Still need to see whether or not he's a lying, backstabbing, scoundrel more evil than some of the demons he faces. I doubt it, given from what I've seen thus far, but there's always room for a character to stop giving a f***. And if the crux of the series is Constantine TRYING to be a better person in spite of his previous lying, backstabbing, scoundrel ways in order to win back his soul, only to keep falling back into old habits...

I'd be onboard with that. And given that the trailer shows him checking himself into an asylum, immediately walking away from a possessed girl before realizing he should go fix it, and selling his soul and another girls... I'd say there's a good chance that might be the way they're going.

... I just really hope that girl he stopped with a taxi isn't supposed to be Zatanna.

I dunno, man... Girl just discovering magic abilities, her mysterious father disappeared for reasons unknown, Constantine knew said father, and has an interest in protecting her...? Sounds like what they might try to make Zatanna into.

Thank you! Thats my problem with it as well

Looks really good. I got a "Supernatural" vibe from it and the lead seems pretty cool as Constantine.

I really love Supernatural but Hellblazer is not Spn. That's the problem.

Posted by Kal'smahboi

I think this looks great so far. The only thing that's missing in the trailer is his "cleverness" and wit but that's hard to convey in one shot and doesn't really bring in viewers. I hope they write the character well. Seems pretty spot on otherwise :)

Posted by TheManInTheShoe

Hm, might check it out.

Posted by Jphu8414

Man Matt Ryan looks like he's really going to nail down his part as John Constantine

Posted by Skit

I'm surprisingly impressed. My only complaint would be his voice, but I can get over that.

@billy_batson Second clip?

Posted by laabitres

i hope it doesnt get cancelled
