Plans for a sequel to Keanu Reeves’ Constantine had been scrapped as a result of Warner Bros. had different plans for the character.

Though Keanu Reeves’ Constantine won’t have been a totally comic-accurate adaptation of the Hellblazer comics, many followers nonetheless loved the story it informed and the way Reeves introduced John Constantine to life on the large display. The movie’s cult following has raised questions on if a sequel is feasible, with director Francis Lawrence not too long ago telling Slash Movie that he’d even spoken to Reeves about reprising the function in an R-rated observe up.

“I feel all of us wished to do it. It was profitable sufficient. We wished to make a accountable, extra R-rated film. By accountable, I imply we’d make a film that wouldn’t value fairly as a lot as the unique, which we thought was going to be PG-13. We labored on the sequel for some time. We’ve got been speaking about it not too long ago. It’s at all times caught with all of us as a result of all of us love the film, and particularly realizing there’s an actual cult following for this film, it’d be enjoyable to make. Keanu and I’ve truly talked about it.”

Sadly that’s the place the excellent news ends, because the director revealed the character isn’t accessible for Keanu Reeves to return again to as Warner Bros. has different plans for the character. Because it was not too long ago introduced {that a} Justice League Darkish sequence is being labored on for HBO Max, it’s doubtless John Constantine could have a task in that. It’s not clear whether or not Matt Ryan, the star who presently performs the warlock in live-action, is being eyed for the HBO Max sequence or in the event that they’ll go together with a brand new actor. Both manner, it’s disappointing to see that Reeves’ Constantine received’t get a sequel.

“Sadly, I don’t even keep in mind who has it, however with all these shared universes that exist now, with Constantine being part of Vertigo, which is part of DC, individuals have plans for these shared universes. You realize, probably totally different Constantines and issues like that. Proper now, we don’t have that character accessible to us for TV or films, which is a bummer. All of us investigated it, however I feel it’s type of loopy when you may have Keanu, who would like to do one other Constantine, and us eager to do one other Constantine, and individuals are like, ‘Uh, no, we bought different plans.’ We’ll see what occurs.”
