Warner Bros. has officially announced a sequel for the DC demonologist Constantine. Deadline reported on September 16 that Keanu Reeves would reprise his role in the 2005 film Constantine. The article also stated that the original film’s director, Frances Lawrence, would return to helm the sequel. In the past 17 years, the DCEU has seen several iterations of the character, but none have captured the same spark that Reeves did in the first film. Now, it appears that DC intends to resurrect the most dangerous demon hunter in its universe using the same individuals who brought him into existence.
Since the last time he saved us from the antichrist, Constantine has been a fan favorite of the DCEU. The film created a new world in which angels and demons lived among us and frequented some bizarre nightclubs. It rendered supernatural forces of good and evil relatable. John Constantine’s struggle did not consist solely of being an exorcist. It was an exorcism of his inner demons, cancer that was literally destroying his lungs and soul. With the announcement of Constantine 2, let’s hope Keanu Reeves has not resumed smoking.

Constantine 2: Plot
When thinking about a second Constantine movie, there are a lot of comic book plots that could be used. In the past, we usually saw him in the stories of other DC characters, but not often in his own. This is because his job is one where he is sometimes “on call.” Exorcists only work when they’re needed, like paramedics or pizza delivery guys. When a hero in the DC universe is having a strange religious experience or trouble with a demon, Constantine shows up.
Most of the time, we’ll only see the character in a cameo or one-shot, like how Johanna Constantine showed up in Sandman. But if we listen to this character’s personal story, we usually get a glimpse of the depths of hell that are inside every person.
Constantine had just stopped smoking when we last saw him. Since he was given a second chance at life, he seemed happy to start over and ready to appreciate what he had been given. But this new start didn’t come for free. Chas (Shia LaBeouf), his right-hand man, had died while trying to stop the antichrist. Father Hennessy was forced to drink himself to death by a spirit. And the insects had eaten Beeman up. Maybe we’ll see him on a mission to get even.
John could have also learned a very important lesson about how to invest in his own life and the lives of others. We might see Constantine carefully take Angela Dodson (Rachel Weisz) on as his new student in the mystic arts. Since Keanu Reeves is getting older, it might make sense for DC to make Constantine into a franchise with a new main character.
And Angela Dodson would be the best person to play the part. With the right training, her experience as a detective and her newly discovered psychic abilities could make her stronger than Constantine. Fans would be thrilled to see them together again. The old characters were a big part of what made the 2005 movie so exciting, and cult fans have been itching for a long time for the sequel to go deeper into the history of Constantine’s world.

Constantine 2: Cast and Crew Update
The next movie in the Constantine series is still a long way off, but Warner Bros. just announced some exciting names. John Constantine is back, and Keanu Reeves is back to play him. It’s an interesting choice because many other actors have played the part over the years.
In the DCEU’s Arrowverse, a popular line of DC canon based on the Green Arrow TV show, Matt Ryan played the character. In an HBO Max show that was never made, Sope Dirisu was supposed to play Constantine. And Jenna Coleman’s last role as Johanna Constantine was in the Sandman series by Neil Gaiman. Even though they were both goods in their own ways, neither of them moved us as much as Keanu Reeves’ original performance.
Fans of this version of the character would love it if they could see him in the lead role again.
Francis Lawrence will be in charge of the show. Putting together the star and the old director could bring back some of the magic we saw in 2005. Since then, Lawrence has had a successful career, directing I Am Legend, Water for Elephants, and taking over The Hunger Games movies starting with Catching Fire. The script is going to be written by Akiva Goldsman. He worked with Lawrence on the movie “I Am Legend,” and he has written some great movies like “Cinderella Man,” “The Da Vinci Code,” and “A Beautiful Mind.”
He has worked on some well-known DC projects, such as Titans and two Batman movies from the 1990s. Right now, he is known for his work on Star Trek: Strange New Worlds. Based on his past work, the next Constantine book will not disappoint. Goldsman has shown that he is a very good writer who knows how to deal with a title that has been around for a while and who has worked in the DC universe before. Along with J.J. Abrams and Hannah Minghella from Bad Robot, he will also produce through his company, Weed Road Pictures.
