I don't like it. Now listen, I've been a Hellblazer fan since I started picking up the book after his appearance in Sandman. However, I really enjoyed Keanu Reeves' Constanteen and was hoping we'd see an eventual sequel. Despite the vast changes made in the film, it had something....special.
I hope this doesn't suck but for some reason this guy just doesn't strike me as John.
I'm right there with you on the front about Reeves' movie. Despite being a rather....... jarring departure from the source material, at least in terms of origin and look, for Constantine(It rhymes with line) it was a good movie. Sometimes that works, like with Blade who's movie was VASTLY different to how he was in the comics.
However unlike Blade, John Constantine as a character is already interesting enough to where he doesn't need to be changed all that much.
Also he looks perfect to me, jumping on the bandwagon right here.
"Doesn't matter what the press says. Doesn't matter what the politicians or the mobs say. Doesn't matter if the whole country decides that something wrong is something right. This nation was founded on one principle above all else: the requirement that we stand up for what we believe, no matter the odds or the consequences. When the mob and the press and the whole world tell you to move, your job is to plant yourself like a tree beside the river of truth, and tell the whole world — "No, you move."
