Peter Stormare Says a Constantine Sequel is In the Works

Notch another one in the “sequels you never thought would happen” category, because Peter Stormare says a Constantine sequel is in the works. Stormare played Lucifer in a brief but memorable appearance in the Keanu Reeves-led 2005 adaptation of the Alan Moore, Rick Veitch, Steve Bissette, and John Totleben-created comic book magician and took to his Instagram account to state that a sequel is “in the works.”

There was a report back in July that a Constantine movie was in the works, but nothing had been confirmed by any stretch at that point and it wasn’t clear if that would be a new take or a continuation of the first film. Reeves played Constantine in the film, loosely adapted from the source by moving him from the UK to Los Angeles and making him an American. The film sees him get wrapped up in a case with a police detective (Rachel Weisz) set to prove her twin’s death wasn’t a suicide, only to discover a much larger — and supernatural — plot in place.

Again, it’s important to say that this is not exactly confirmation; Warner Bros. has not commented on any reports about a Constantine film as of yet. Back in July, producer Akiva Goldsman said that there was always a lot of talk about a sequel and said, “Boy, we wanted to make a sequel, We wanted to make a hard ‘R’ sequel; we’d probably make it tomorrow.”

Constantine has since seen a fair amount of life under Warner Bros.’ purview. He got his own live-action series where he was played by Matt Ryan, and after that show was canceled at NBC after one season Ryan brought the character to the CW. He’s since gone on to become a regular on DC’s Legends of Tomorrow. There were also the animated VOD films Justice League Dark and Justice League Dark: Apokolips War, both of which saw Ryan voice the character.
