It was confirmed last month that Matt Ryan's fan-favorite occult detective John Constantine will return to The CW in live-action for a two-episode arc in DC's Legends of Tomorrow. Now, as we continue to inch closer two his two-episode arc on the eclectic superhero drama, executive producer Marc Guggenheim has provided fans with a first look at the appropriately on-brand cover page of the script for Episode 10, titled "Daddy Darhkest."
The image shows what would otherwise be an ordinary script cover bearing the show's logo and some of the episode's technical details. However, the background includes a red necktie and a lit cigarette, signature items belonging to DC Comics' chain-smoking con man/magician.
Shortly after the announcement of Constantine's impending return to live-action, executive producer Phil Klemmer revealed details about the character's arc, noting that the narrative takes place, chronologically, after his appearance in Arrow Season 4, in which Oliver Queen called upon Constantine to restore the soul of Sara Lance.
Ryan starred as Constantine on NBC’s live-action 2015 series, which was canceled after just 13 episodes. In addition to his guest role on Arrow, Ryan voiced the character earlier this year in Justice League Dark, the director-to-DVD animated movie, and will star in the upcoming Constantine animated series, debuting next year on the CW Seed digital platform.
Airing Tuesdays at 9 pm ET on The CW, DC’s Legends of Tomorrow stars Victor Garber as Martin Stein, Arthur Darvill as Rip Hunter, Dominic Purcell as Mick Rory/Heat Wave, Caity Lotz as Sara Lance/White Canary, Franz Drameh as Jefferson “Jax” Jackson/Firestorm, Brandon Routh as Ray Palmer/Atom, Maisie Richardson-Sellers as Amaya Jiwe/Vixen, and Nick Zano as Nate Heywood/Steel.
