It looks like in addition to a Dark Justice League series, we may have a new Constantine series coming up. According to The Illuminerdi, who was right in their rumors and speculations, HBO Max is preparing a spinoff of this dark universe, which will be more faithful to the character’s comics.

In previous interviews, Ryan, who was also Constantine’s original voice in DC Comics animated films, had previously expressed interest in participating in the Dark Justice League, stating that he would be offended if he wasn’t. not taken into account for the project.

Illuminerdi claims, however, that HBO Max wants Riz Ahmed (Venom, Rogue One) for the role of protagonist, or someone who has the same profile as the actor, being a BIPOC person – a term in English used to refer to black people. , natives or non-whites.

Like the Dark Justice League, the Constantine-centric derivative is to be produced by JJ Abrams. Previously, the boss of HBO had previously explained that Abrams is passionate about the team of heroes and that he is very excited to develop the project centered on these characters. Since then, no updates on the series have been released.

It’s important to remember that in 2020, Peter Stormare said that a sequence for the film starring Reeves is in development. No news of the project came after that.
