“Constantine,” which had a short run as a live-action series on NBC during the 2014-15 season, is being revived in animated form. The CW announced plans for the project Sunday at the Television Critics Association’s press tour.
The animated show is being produced by the channel’s original content arm CW Seed. The company also tweeted out a photo Sunday teasing what the project will look like (see photo below).
Along with the photo, CW Seed tweeted: “Executive producer @GBerlanti and writer David S. Goyer will be reanimating #Constantine on @cwseed, with @mattryanreal casting the spells!” Translation: Matt Ryan, who starred as John Constantine in the live-action version, will be back to voice the animated character.
Along with Greg Berlanti, executive producers on the new project reportedly include Goyer along with Sarah Schechter.
