Over the course of the past few months, Warner Bros. Discovery has made headlines after canceling a slew of projects. Most of the notable cancellations to occur happened to DC titles including Wonder Twins, which was well into pre-production, and most recently, Batgirl, which was nearly finished. Now, DC fans are curious about what will happen to DC’s previously announced slate of television shows and movies, especially those on HBO Max. While the DC’s future slate remains uncertain, a new report from Deadline suggests that Constantine is still very much moving forward.
The outlet states that Constantine, which is being developed through J.J. Abrams‘ overall deal at the studio, is on solid ground and is still moving along. In fact, it seems to be one of two projects believed to still be moving forward. Deadline also stated that Duster, which Abrams co-wrote with LaToya Morgan, still has its series order and looks to be active.
Constantine, which hails from writer Guy Bolton, will see a diverse lead in the role and is imagined as a darker reboot of the DC Comics character. Rumors earlier this year stated that British-Nigerian actor Ṣọpẹ Dìrísù had been cast as Constantine. The actor’s casting was never confirmed, though.
As it stands, nothing has been officially announced, but it looks like Constantine might be a series saved from cancellation. After all, David Zaslav is said to be a fan of Abrams and, so long as Zaslav feels Abrams’ work is quality, it seems likely Abrams will continue to chip away at his packed slate of projects.
