Matt Ryan to Reprise Constantine in Animated JUSTICE LEAGUE DARK

Heads up, Hellblazers...John Constantine's coming back to TV.

ComicBookMovie.com has word that Matt Ryan, who starred as DC Comics/VERTIGO character John Constantine on the short-lived (but fondly remembered) NBC series Constantine, will reprise the role for the upcoming DC Comics animated movie Justice League Dark.

The project was first rumored last month, with a formal announcement at Comic-Con International San Diego 2016 last week, along with Teen Titans: The Judas Contract and Batman and Harley Quinn.  The special features for Batman: The Killing Joke have leaked online and include a sneak peek at Justice League Dark

According to the 8-minute feature, the principal voice cast includes:

Matt Ryan as John Constantine
Jason O'Mara as Batman
Camilla Luddington as Zatanna
Nicholas Turturro as Deadman
Ray Chase as The Demon/Jason Blood

Other characters featured in Justice League Dark include Swamp Thing, Black Orchid, Felix Faust, and the Demons Three.  The House of Mystery will also make its appearance.

Created in 2011 by Peter Milligan and Mike Janin, Justice League Dark first appeared in Justice League Dark #1 as a team of supernatural character in the DC Universe who handle situations deemed unfit for the traditional Justice League.

Other members of the team included Andrew Bennett, Amethyst, Doctor Mist, Frankenstein, Madame Xanadu, Mindwarp, Nightmare Nurse, Pandora, the Phantom Stranger, Shade the Changing Man, Timothy Hunter, and Zauriel.

A live-action film adaptation of Justice League Dark is reportedly still in development at Warner Bros., although director Guillermo del Toro, who had been working on the project since 2012, is no longer attached to the project.

If you'd like to check out the 8-minute feature, you can view it below thanks to Mr. Marbles on YouTube...

Justice League Dark is expected to arrive on home video and video on-demand sometime later this fall.
