It’s a good thing NBC released that Constantine trailer revealed at San Diego Comic-Con because it’s far superior to that last one we shared back in June and also goes well beyond that very first one we got, which essentially is a summary of the pilot episode. Not only does this new version continue to highlight Matt Ryan’s spot-on casting, but it also rocks loads of eerie imagery, a powerful build and some new material that offers up a more comprehensive sense of what to expect from the show’s first season.
Hit the jump to check out the Constantine SDCC preview. The show kicks off on October 24th at 10/9c and also stars Lucy Griffiths (for a little bit at least), Harold Perrineau and Charles Halford with Daniel Cerone and David S. Goyer aboard as executive producers.
Here’s the official synopsis for Constantine:
Based on the wildly popular DC Comics series “Hellblazer,” seasoned demon hunter and master of the occult John Constantine (Matt Ryan, “Criminal Minds”) specializes in giving hell… hell. Armed with a ferocious knowledge of the dark arts and his wickedly naughty wit, he fights the good fight — or at least he did. With his soul already damned to hell, he’s decided to leave his do-gooder life behind, but when demons target Liv (Lucy Griffiths, “True Blood”), the daughter of one of Constantine’s oldest friends, he’s reluctantly thrust back into the fray – and he’ll do whatever it takes to save her. Before long, it’s revealed that Liv’s “second sight” — an ability to see the worlds behind our world and predict supernatural occurrences — is a threat to a mysterious new evil that’s rising in the shadows. Now it’s not just Liv who needs protection; the angels are starting to get worried too. So, together, Constantine and Liv must use her power and his skills to travel the country, find the demons that threaten our world and send them back where they belong. After that, who knows… maybe there’s hope for him and his soul after all.
