Here’s some disappointing news for the fans of the 2005 movie Constantine, starring Keanu Reeves.
Warner Bros. Discovery announced in September 2022 that the movie would be getting a sequel after nearly 20 years, but since then there has been no further word on the project.
Thanks to industry insider KC Walsh, fans learned that the recently announced film, Constantine 2, might have been cancelled. In response to a now-deleted tweet, Walsh stated that “Constantine 2 is not happening.” The insider revealed that it was a “desperate” move by Warner Bros. “That was a movie they greenlit in desperation because they weren’t sure the direction of DC here and needed to have something post-2023.”
The cancelation of Constantine 2 comes on the heels of three other projects that were also cancelled, including Doom Patrol, Titans, and Pennyworth. Furthermore, there was the incident involving Batgirl and its controversial cancellation. These recent events highlight the volatility of Warner Bros. in the past few months.
Despite the cancellation of Constantine 2, fans can still expect to see the character of Constantine in the future of DC Comics. For example, he could show up in James Gunn’s new Swamp Thing movie. The two characters have a complex relationship, and putting them together could pave the way for a Justice League Dark movie. Furthermore, Gunn could potentially cast Reeves in a role such as Deathstroke, which would be fitting for his talent.
The next DC Comic movie to be released in theaters is Zachary Levi’s Shazam! Fury of the Gods, which will hit theaters on March 17. Fans are hoping that this movie will be given the future that was taken away from Constantine.
The future of the DCU is bright, but it seems that Constantine will not be a part of it. Fans are disappointed by the cancellation of Constantine 2, but there is still room for the character of Constantine to make an appearance in future DC Comics movies. The next movie to be released is Shazam! Fury of the Gods, and fans are hoping that it will be a success
