The first images and a new banner for NBC's upcoming 'Constantine' series have arrived online. The blazing banner comes in along with a trio of fresh stills from the new show which stars British actor Matt Ryan in the title role alongside Brit co-star Lucy Griffiths ('The Numbers Station'). The duo feature in the new pics including one particular still that almost appears to show Constantine having a sneaky feel-up! The show's pilot is helmed by 'The Descent' director Neil Marshall and is based on the original 'Hellblazer' graphic novels from DC Comics. David S. Goyer ('Batman Begins') and Daniel Cerone ('The Mentalist') are on board as executive producers. Head below for the goods.
"In Constantine, based on the comic book series "Hellblazer" from DC Comics, seasoned demon hunter and master of the occult John Constantine 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, 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. And 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."
