This weeks episode of Arrow brings the character of John Constantine to Star City. After his show was unjustly cancelled by NBC last year, the character was left in limbo, with all the mainstream Networks unwilling to pick the series up for another run. Luckily, the Hellblazers (Constantine fans) spoke up and requested he make an appearance in the Arrow/Flash universe, and it actually works pretty well. Like Robert Downey Jr as Tony Stark, Matt Ryan as Constantine is just a perfect piece of casting. I pity the actor who picks up the role in Justice League:Dark. 

I’ll admit now, I don’t normally watch Arrow. I struggled to make my way through the first episode of series one. It felt like a badly made American soap opera from the 80’s. But after this episode, my interest has been piqued. 

When this broadcast in the US last week, it saw ratings spike with an extra two million people tuning in. Hopefully it will inspire the team behind Arrow and The Flash to bring Constantine into more episodes. I’m sure there’s space for him in Legends of tomorrow. If not then there’s always Supergirl..

Arrow airs on Wednesday’s at 8pm on Sky One.

American network, NBC have ordered a pilot for a Rupert Grint headed Superhero show.
The part was reportedly written with Grint in mind, he will play a New Yorker, whom is obsessed by Imperial City, a comic book series his now deceased father created.

He’s spent his whole life believing he owns all nine issues. But when a mysterious comic book collector arrives and reveals the existence of a tenth issue, he discovers that the world of Imperial City is all too real, and he is the one person who can save it.
