A new trailer for the upcoming Constantine TV show was released over the weekend, and along with the assorted cheeky comments, damsels in demonic distress and trenchcoated action, there’s a shot of Dr. Fate’s helmet. This image gave rise to excitement and positive feelings among many observers.
In fact, I liked this trailer, and Matt Ryan seems okay from the brief footage, although seeing Constantine labeled as being from “The DC Comics Universe” kind of made my heart sink. It’S VERTIGO DAMMIT. But anyway, looks like DC’s cosmic line-up will be getting some play. Is it too much to ask for Prez?
