A few days ago news broke the John Constantine will be appearing on season 4 of Arrow. After the cancellation of Constantine on CBS, there were rumors on the show being picked up by Syfy but that fell through. With the news that Constantine will be making an appearance on Arrow, everyone is now speculating on what possible story line may be in play. According to IGN Arrow’s executive producer Wendy Mericle gave the following information
It was born more out of the storyline for Sara Lance. We needed someone to come in and help bring her back…He felt like the most exciting possibility and we’re just thrilled to get him. He brings such a different element to the show
When asked if this will be the wise cracking Constantine from his show she stated the following
Absolutely. He is coming in fully as who he was on the show. We’re getting wardrobe. We’re very excited to have him. He’s a tremendous actor. It’s so cool to have that cross-pollination. We are very lucky and DC was very generous letting us have him
So far Constantine is only coming back for one episode, but if written and performed right this could help bring back some interest in a Constantine show.
