It was announced last month that Matt Ryan’s Constantine would be heading to Arrow during the new season and now one of the show’s big bosses is talking about the surprising, but welcomed appearance.
NBC’s Constantine didn’t score high enough ratings to be renewed for a second season, but it did land some hardcore fans by the end of its run. Now those fans will get to see their favorite supernatural detective team up with their favorite masked vigilante and hopefully get a little closure about the fate of the series.
See what Arrow‘s co-creator Marc Guggenheim had to say to Superhero Hype about John Constantine’s stint on the show below:
“When you see him in the show, honestly it feels like we’re doing a Constantine/Arrow crossover, and it’s so exciting… We’re just really glad we got the chance to extend Matt Ryan’s run as Constantine by at least one more hour of television. I think you’ll see he fits very neatly into our universe. It never feels forced, it feels right. Stephen’s on screen vibe with Matt is just very natural, it’s as if these guys had been working together forever. I think people are really going to love the episode. John Badham (WarGames, Saturday Night Fever) directed it and it was just a happy circumstance, but John had also directed an episode of Constantine. It all works and it works really effortlessly. It worked effortlessly with a lot of effort I should say. I can’t wait for people to see that episode, if you thought it was a thrill just to see that one shot of Matt in the trailer wait til you see a whole episode with him.”
Arrow returns to The CW on October 7th at 8 p.m. ET.
