"Ask and you shall receive"
For a few months now, fans have ask WB to bring Constantine back in any way, shape or form to the silver screen and for a whilte; that notion seemed to be nothing more than wishful thinking from the fans. The show was cancelled due to low ratings and regardless of the time slot it aired on; tv producers only care about numbers; and Constantine's were very low. Now me personally, I have to admit that I've never read Hellblazer or any other book featuring John Constantine (although I really want to!) so I came into this show with no expectations. I did like Keanu Reeves' Constantine movie from a few years back but I was told that the comic was much different, I don't see how; but that's what I was told. Anyhow, I watched the show with my wife and I have to admit; I really liked it! In my humble opinion Matt Ryan was brilliant as Constantine. But, if you're going to build a tv series for the long haul; the cast has to be on point as well and I think that's where the series was lacking a bit.
Regardless, after fans clamoring for Constantine's return, after countless tv executives telling us the show is dead in the water, after the #SAVECONSTANTINE campaign died down and even after entertainment channels told us it was over; Constantine will be coming back after all! And not only that, he'll be coming back in a little tv series known as ARROW!!! It's almost poetic if you think about it, everyone thought it was dead but it's followers kept on believing until one glorious day; he rose from the ashes like the spirits John Constantine deals with on a daily basis. The best comic book writer couldn't have written it any better really! I'll end with this my friends, rejoice in your victory; because you've earned it! When everyone that seemed to know what they were talking about told you to "give it up", when they told you to "let it go", you didn't and because of that; your wish has become a reality! Be happy, enjoy the fruits of your labor and always remember this day; always remember what you can accomplish if you never loose faith. Welcome back John Constantine... your fans missed you. #Cosntantine
