Marc Guggenheim Discusses Bringing Constantine into Fourth Season of Arrow. One of the few surprises from Arrow’s season four trailer was the return It of Matt Ryan as Constantine from the NBC series. EP Marc Guggenheim gave some info on the Hellblazer’s arrival in Star City.
Fans have been trying to save Constantine for months after the cancellation a few months ago. Even though John Constantine’s return probably won’t give him a second chance on the small screen, his appearance on Arrow may be a good way to bring him back into the fold. SuperHeroHype caught up with EP Marc Guggenheim about Constantine’s return to the DC TV Universe, and here’s what he had to say about the reason fans should be excited about his appearance on Arrow.
When you see him in the show, honestly it feels like we’re doing a Constantine/Arrow crossover, and it’s so exciting… We’re just really glad we got the chance to extend Matt Ryan’s run as Constantine by at least one more hour of television. I think you’ll see he fits very neatly into our universe. It never feels forced, it feels right. Stephen’s on screen vibe with Matt is just very natural, it’s as if these guys had been working together forever. I think people are really going to love the episode. John Badham (WarGames, Saturday Night Fever) directed it and it was just a happy circumstance, but John had also directed an episode of Constantine. It all works and it works really effortlessly. It worked effortlessly with a lot of effort I should say. I can’t wait for people to see that episode, if you thought it was a thrill just to see that one shot of Matt in the trailer wait till you see a whole episode with him.
It will be interesting to see if this episode will lead to anything more beyond the show for the character. Perhaps a second life for Constantine? It might be wishful thinking, but the character could easily make future appearances on Arrow and The Flash or even get a role in the upcoming DC’s Legends of Tomorrow. What do you guys think?
