Warner Bros announced. A sequel to Keanu Reeves‘ 2005 film Constantine, Reeves will reprise his beloved role.
It’s been a long time coming, but the much-rumoured and fan-requested sequel to the 2005 D.C. thriller Constantine is finally moving forward with Keanu Reeves returning in the lead role. According to Deadline, Reeves will rejoin the original’s director Francis Lawrence, and Akiva Goldsman and J.J. will direct the sequel, Creating a badass Abrams robot using Goldsman’s Wade Road photos.
Regarding fan-favourite characters in the D.C. Universe, Keanu Reeves takes on the exorcist and demonologist John Constantine, the biggest comic book names like Justice League, and 17 original characters coming to the big screen. It seems fans want Reeves to reprise his role, which is finally starting to come true.
Any successful comedy film is usually expected to be automatically greenlit for a sequel, but Constantine made $200 million in 2005, which wasn’t enough to start a sequel. Of course, Reeves isn’t waiting for Warner Bros. to come around. To explore this, he is currently in the middle of the John Wick franchise and the recently returned Matrix franchise. Last year, he also provided the voice of Batman for the D.C. League of SuperPets. Undoubtedly, the news that he is now bringing Constantine back to the big screen will take his fans by storm, who can’t get enough of Keanu Reeves in their lives.
The John Constantine series was said to be coming to HBO Max last month.
Warner Bros. passed away. Discovery has changed a lot in the past few months, especially when it comes to directing D.C. in theatres and HBO Max. With so many shows and movies being cancelled, including the popular Batgirl, one of the series to go on was the Constantine series, and just last month, it was said that the show was on solid ground. It had nothing to do with Rios. The film or other versions of Constantine have already been explored on screen. It is said:
“One HBO Max project that sources point to as being on solid ground and moving along is Constantine, a darker reboot of the DC Comics character from British writer Guy Bolton. The project is set around a diverse lead, rather than the one played by Matt Ryan in the 2014 NBC series and The CW’s Arrowverse, or the 2005 Keanu Reeves feature film.”
Exactly one month later, the series ended on HBO Max; Abrams is now working on the film. More details about the film are likely to come in the future, but for now, this should be enough for most fans to know that Rios’ return to the role is very much on the table.
