John Constantine has been around for a long time. Beginning as a supporting character in Alan Moore’s run in DC’s Swamp Thing, he later became the star of his own series, Hellblazer from Vertigo. After 300 issues, he joined the current DC continuity in four different series. However, despite his popularity on the page, he hasn’t had the best of luck on screen. With the release of Justice League Dark as part of the DC animated universe, we look back on his screen portrayals on film and TV. Keanu Reeves had one go in the 2005 film “Constantine” and Matt Ryan has had three attempts (with more to come?) in the 2015 TV series “Constantine”, as part of the CW DC TV universe in “Arrow”, and most recently in JLD. All these appearances and still no Funko Pop.
At the top of the episode, we also review a fantastic genre movie double bill, Kong Skull Island and Logan.
