Will Constantine survive the pilot?

NBC has cast their Constantine. Matt Ryan (Layer Cake, Flypaper) will portray the character originally created by Alan Moore for DC Comics. 

“The project centers on John Constantine (Ryan), an enigmatic and irreverent con man-turned-reluctant supernatural detective who is thrust into the role of defending us against dark forces from beyond. John Constantine is described as a working-class Londoner with rakish good looks, scruffy blond hair, deadpan humor, and signature trench coat, who has been studying the dark arts since he was a teenager. When the daughter of a late friend is targeted by demons, Constantine steps in to save her”.

Constantine is being written by The Mentalist’s executive producer Daniel Cerone. David S. Goyer (Man of Steel) is co-writing the script. Will Constantine be able to survive the pilot? Sound off below Maniacs!

 Yay! He's a Brit.  Looks the part too.  I'm onboard, hope they don't skimp on the horror or go too heavy on the soap opera possiblities (it is NBC after all).  Wonder if we'll see some other Justice League Dark characters?

How will this effect Del Toro's JLD movie..?

Well... PROPOSED movie.

Constantine is the most brilliant comic book character ever created so they better not screw this up

JLD wont be happening if we never get a JL movie. DC is not looking too strong in that dept. they are doing great on TV but give them more than an hour time slot and they lose their freakin minds lol

I still like Keanu version and will watch from time to time.  I am on board for the first few ep's anyway.  Bet they drop the cigs however.

No Keanu? no wiseguy :)

Matty ICE whoo hoo; oh wait, a different Matt Ryan. 

I wonder if they would do the unthinkable, have the same character in JLD; nah that would make way too much sense and DC would never go for it.
