Could Constantine join season 2 of DC's Legends of Tomorrow?
That's what Bleeding Cooling is reporting. They were contacted by a "reliable" source, who informed them that plan is to have Matt Ryan's John Constantine "appear as a series regular in 2017’s season two" as part of The CW's plan is supposedly to have DC's Legends of Tomorrow "radically switch casts and missions each season."
Earlier this year, heaven and earth were moved to make it possible for Matt Ryan to reprise his Constantine role on Arrow. His appearance gave the show a spike in ratings and reignited interest in seeing more of Ryan as the chain-smoking demon hunter.
We reached out to The CW for comment. We will update as soon as we hear back from them.
