Matt Ryan confirmed to appear as Constantine in ‘Arrow’ season 4

News from the TCA, via Collider, is that Matt Ryan will indeed reprise role as Constantine during the upcoming fourth season of Arrow.

“The series is no longer on the air and luckily one of our parent companies, Warner Bros., was a production company on Constantine. We worked with them and it’s a great one-shot episode,” CW President Mark Pedowitz explained, when asked they secured the rights for the character’s appearance.

Ryan played the popular Vertigo character during a 13-episode season on NBC, but the show was canceled and ends the run for Hellblazer inspired show.

“Matt is an incredibly talented actor and his portrayal of this beloved character was always something we admired. The introduction of magic and mysticism on the show this season has provided a truly organic opportunity for us to bring John Constantine to Arrow and the CW’s DC universe. It will be a well-deserved tip of the hat to all the Constantine fans who were so incredibly supportive of that series.”

Episode 5 of season 4 is titled “Haunted” – here’s from their presser:

John Constantine is a weather worn exorcist and expert on the supernatural and the occult.  He is a detective, magician, and a hunter of demons, and will provide critical support to Oliver (Stephen Amell) when arrows aren’t enough.

The stars took twitter for a fun exchange, beginning with Arrow’s Stephen Amell to Ryan:
