Promising words or portent of impending doom for the fledgeling DC Comics adaptation?! U DECIDE!
At the Television Critics Association press tour, IGN reporter Eric Goldman asked NBC Chairman Robert Greenblatt about the upcoming Constantine TV series (script written by David Goyer and Daniel Cerone). Greenblatt replied:
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.
We would point out that "I don't know the comic very well" isn't a great starting point for adapting a beloved comic book series, but that handicap hasn't stopped DC Comics from producing an entire line of monthly comics, so what do we know? Still no word on whether the show will adapt the Hellblazer or Nu52 Constantine version of the character, but at least we can rest assured that the supernatural "stuff" will be "scary."
Greenblatt also mentioned that it would be difficult for the show to crossover with DC shows on other networks, though he stopped short of outright dismissing the idea that Constantine will take place in the same universe as Arrow.
