Set Photo Reveals Matt Ryan as Constantine

Matt Ryan as John Constantine

NBC’s Constantine, based on the character from DC Comics and produced by David S. Goyer (Man of Steel) and Daniel Cerone (The Mentalist), will begin filming next week. A recently released set photo (right) reveals actor Matt Ryan (Criminal Minds) in costume as the supernatural detective John Constantine. The image originated from Slates for Sarah, a Facebook page dedicated to the recently deceased cinematographer Sarah Elizabeth Jones.

Matt Ryan’s appearance is strikingly similar to the John Constantine from the comics. In this photo, we see Ryan complete with Constantine’s signature brown trench coat, shirt, tie, and dirty blond hair. It’s a much needed departure from the Constantine Keanu Reeves portrayed in 2005.

Now that you have your first look at Matt Ryan as Constantine, do you think he’s a good choice for this iconic role? Are you looking forward to seeing what NBC will pull off with Constantine? Let us know in the comments.
