New ‘Constantine’ trailer teases Doctor Fate, more Matt Ryan footage

The DC universe is expanding with The Flash, a Batman prequel series in Gotham and the popular Vertigo title Hellblazer will have a show titled Constantine.

This is the second trailer and offers pretty much the same footage and insight as the first one, watch it here. Fans were quick to identify the “Easter Egg,” or obvious introduction of Doctor Fate as the Helmet of Fate is clearly visible.

Created in 1940, Fate is a major player in DC’s supernatural universe as the helmet gives the wearer spellcasting abilities, super strength and other powers such as telekinesis.

Constantine’s pilot episode was directed by Neil Marshall (Game of Thrones) and produced by Daneil Cerone and David Goyer. Matt Ryan stars as the title character with Lucy Griffiths and Harold Perrineau also on the show. Check out the full synopsis below.

 

Here’s the official synopsis for Constantine:

Based on the wildly popular  DC Comics series “Hellblazer,” seasoned demon hunter and master of the occult John Constantine (Matt Ryan, “Criminal Minds”) specializes in giving hell… hell. Armed with a ferocious knowledge of the dark arts and his wickedly naughty wit, he fights the good fight — or at least he did. With his soul already damned to hell, he’s decided to leave his do-gooder life behind, but when demons target Liv (Lucy Griffiths, “True Blood”), the daughter of one of Constantine’s oldest friends, he’s reluctantly thrust back into the fray – and he’ll do whatever it takes to save her. Before long, it’s revealed that Liv’s “second sight” — an ability to see the worlds behind our world and predict supernatural occurrences — is a threat to a mysterious new evil that’s rising in the shadows. Now it’s not just Liv who needs protection; the angels are starting to get worried too. So, together, Constantine and Liv must use her power and his skills to travel the country, find the demons that threaten our world and send them back where they belong. After that, who knows… maybe there’s hope for him and his soul after all.
