Comments Off on ARROW: Stephen Amell on Matt Ryan’s Guest Spot as Constantine

ARROW is no stranger to crossing over with other DC/The CW shows — the series has served as the launching pad/frequent crossover partner for THE FLASH, and it’s now helping to set the stage for the upcoming LEGENDS OF TOMORROW — but in tonight’s episode, it’s doing something new: crossing over with DC/NBC’s departed series, CONSTANTINE.

John Constantine’s magical knowledge will also prove to be vital — with Sara alive and soulless, Constantine might be the only one who can help put her back together.

Stephen Amell (Oliver) spoke with reporters on the show’s Vancouver set about working with CONSTANTINE’s Matt Ryan on the episode… Read more

ARROW and CONSTANTINE will have a crossover this fall as Matt Ryan is reprise his role of John Constantine on The CW drama.

CONSTANTINE was canceled after one season this May, but since the show falls into the DC universe, things worked out to bring his character to ARROW.

UPDATE: Per CW, Ryan will appear in episode 5, “Haunted,” and “John Constantine is a weather worn exorcist and expert on the supernatural and the occult.  He is a detective, magician, and a hunter of demons, and will provide critical support to Oliver (Stephen Amell) when arrows aren’t enough.

EP Marc Guggenheim says:

“We are thrilled to have Matt Ryan reprise the role of John Constantine on an upcoming episode of Arrow. Matt is an incredibly talented actor and his portrayal of this beloved character was always something we admired. The introduction of magic and mysticism on the show this season has provided a truly organic opportunity for us to bring John Constantine to Arrow and the CW’s DC universe. It will be a well-deserved tip of the hat to all the Constantine fans who were so incredibly supportive of that series.””

Details are still being kept on the DL, but are you excited to see Constantine on ARROW?

CONSTANTINE: Matt Ryan, Angélica Celaya, and Charles Halford Tease the Arrival of Jim Corrigan and Return of Papa Midnite

constantine-thumbThe CONSTANTINE crew will be introduced to a familiar face from the comics in this week’s brand new episode: Jim Corrigan. And, unfortunately for Jim, the initial interactions aren’t wildly positive.

“John and Jim cross paths on a case,” CONSTANTINE star Matt Ryan (John) teased to reporters on the show’s Atlanta set. “But what’s interesting is Jim is introduced to this world, which he doesn’t believe — he thinks, what the fuck is this supernatural stuff? There’s a great line where he says, how do you know this is real? What’s interesting about their relationship is they want the same thing, ultimately, but they’re coming at it from different angles, and they’re willing to sacrifice different parts of themselves. And ultimately, Corrigan wants justice, but that comes from a form of rage, a form of anger. With John, it’s complicated. There’s those things as well, but there’s a lot of other stuff as well. I think Jim’s world is very much based in the real world, and John, obviously, knows about the world beyond ours, so there’s other levels…and John uses his humor as a defense mechanism; he’s become good at hiding it. Whereas Corrigan, you can see more on the surface, he’s a little more scarred. But I think John’s problems are more deeper rooted…but he hides them well, I think.”

And because John doesn’t immediately click with Jim, Chas finds himself on guard around the newbie, too.
