Constantine: First Look(s) at Papa Midnite

Papa Midnite is coming to Constantine this week, in the new episode titled "The Devil's Vinyl," and NBC have released a first official look -- and then a second, even more menacing -- at one of the great characters in the Hellblazer canon.

Michael James Shaw stars as Papa Midnite, a character who is often an uneasy ally -- and sometimes an enemy -- to Constantine in the comics. He served a similarly complex role in the 2005 Keanu Reeves film based on the character.

You can check out the second image, along with the official synopsis, below:
