NBC Chairman On CONSTANTINE’S Tone And Possibility Of Network Crossover
With all the talk about Guillermo del Toro’s Justice League Dark, few people thought that a TV series based on one of the characters was a possibility. They thought wrong. NBC ventured to take a gamble on the character Constantine with David Goyer and Daniel Cerone executive producing, by ordering up a pilot.
NBC Chairman, Robert Greenblatt, chatted a little bit with IGN about the series. While he wasn’t a total open book about the series, he did offer up some interesting tidbits. “I don’t know the DC comic very well, but there is dark, interesting stuff in it, but it’s also got some witty banter. It’s a fun tone, although the supernatural stuff is scary,” He explained.
With all the new DC television shows that are popping up, fans are clamoring for a cross over of some sort. We already got one when Barry Allen visited Starling City in Arrow. But what about any network crossovers? Could we see Fox’s Jim Gordon helping out NBC’s Constantine? While it’s not currently in the cards, Greenblatt does leave a ray of hope. “Cross-network is really hard. It’s hard enough to do it within your network. I think let us see how the pilot goes before we answer that question,” he said.
With the new Constantine TV show, people have assumed that Justice League Dark was dead. Guillermo del Toro has stated that it is still a go and that DC/WB is looking to expand it’s characters on all forms of media. While we wont know the fate of Constantine on the big or small screen for quite some time, it does appear that DC is trying to get their character in front of their audiences in all types of media.
