As much as i love the character I dont see this one surviving unless they turn it into some sort of True Blood knock off. Maybe if he's smoking Constant-ly.

Matt Ryan looks ok for the part. Let's hope they don't gloss him over but still keep a few of the rough edges he had from the original comic. This female companion s**t is annoying. Typical tv producer move...they don't seem to realize Constantine works on his own, and doesn't need female or male companions. Let him meet people along the way, as he would more often be doing his own thing like in the comics, and then running into friends or acquaintences...and demons. He doesn't need a TEAM, but I guess we'll see what happens with that idea. But if they have them all debriefing at the end of each episode in some sort of effin office or cafe setting, I'm gonna upchuck a demon made of stinky cheese. Please don't turn this show into Friends: Crowley's Cuppa. 

Only positives so far: Neil Marshall directing the pilot, and David S. Goyer co-writing the pilot. 

Man, I wish Denis Leary was a Brit.

 @Rmund: totally agree!  It sounds like this female lead business is the first step in creating a cookie cutter show rather than a faithful, original production.  An ensemble cast is used to create running storylines of interpesonal drama.  Constantine is a misanthropic prick who doesn't do interpersonal drama.  If they have to ape another series, I at least hope it's House, not Supernatural.

I'll give this a chance, but I really have trouble seeing how this can work on network T.V.  Constantine is a very dark, harsh comic.  The conversion will be very interesting to see, if it's pulled off effectively.

Any chance other mystical denizens of the DCU  showing up? Zatanna, Dr.Fate,Swamp Thing, Etrigan?

I only hope the female companion is on long enough for Constantine to sleep with her then screw her over like he does every woman he has any kind of relationship with. I will watch this show just for the chance that the Stranger will make an appearance.
