Based on DC's Hellblazer series, the 2005 comic book flick Constantine became an unlikely cult favorite despite changing just about everything from the source material in order to fit star Keanu Reeves. Yet despite its popularity, there's still no sign of a second installment in the franchise. Here's a look at why we never got to see a Constantine sequel...
Keanu Reeves wasn't interested | 0:19
It wasn't a hit | 0:52
The pitch got tossed | 1:32
The Constantine TV show flopped | 2:11
It may be rebooted | 2:39

Yeah, why THE FUCK did John Wick (a predictable action flick not worth the hour and a half of your time with a boring unstoppable protagonist with superman like qualities lacking the kind of depth only surpassed by Steven Seagal's characters, and an even more mindnumbing bad guy we've seen a thousand times before) get a fucking sequel while such a gem as Constantine didn't? HAS THE WHOLE WORLD GONE CRAZY? A flawed hero with lungcancer in a race against time trying desperately to get into heaven? So much more fucking awesome, just saying, not even to mention Lucifer's appearance which completely steals the goddamn show!
The Reeves Constantine was really good up until the end. I never bought the white suit Kentucky Fried Satan look, or the spiel about God indulging his gambling addiction with the Devil, but I thought Reeves did an excellent portrayal and the demons (aside from Balthazar) looked pretty cool. It was a lot better than the material it was sourced from or any other interpretations of the character. I kind of wish they would have scrapped the whole relation to the Constantine comic and made a more original exorcist/detective movie.
Keanu Reeves IS Constantine, I know he neither acts like or looks like the Comic version but he introduced millions to the character and his DARK version became Constantine. I would LOVE to see a sequel with him and him in a DC Dark heroes ensemble
I wish they hadnt made the ending of the movie to set up a sequel... would have been pretty awesome had it ended on that iconic shot of constantine going to heaven and pulling the middle finger at lucifer
And i mean, if they made a sequel, they could have just added a prologue where it shows how lucifer pulls him back etc
All these shows run away from MAGIC! Just use the writer-given powers of characters to the fullest. Look at the pathetic Scarlet and half of MCU, look at others in DCEU. DC series are very good because they go to the fullest of the characters potential.
These type of movies (dark dc characters) don’t usually get sequels because they usually have controversial themes...such religious or political undertones, sometimes existential...which we have to admit is not something for everyone...not saying it doesn’t happen (like the Matrix)...but it really is quite rare to reach a box-office status and have enough return to create a sequel...look at V for Vendetta, it gained quite a popularity but subservience isn’t exactly something everyone likes...i’m actually a fan of these types of stories...often morally ambiguous characters with really good stories and character development but the reality is most of the time these movies only getting a cult following and eventual successful dvd releases...hopefully we get to have more favorable fates in the future for these types of stories but for now we can expect less from Hollywood
I would rather see keanu reeves in constantine 2 than a cheap knock off reboot series its like when they bought out the highlander movie and did a really bad job of the tv series it makes you want to headbutt the wanker directers who dont give a fuck about where the movies going they run out of ideas so they make it a dodgey tv series pure fuckupism so dont fuck this up ya wankers reeves is still the best for his movies you carnt remake a movie with out the main character who played it the best .
Matt Ryan's Constantine is joining the Legends of Tomorrow as a regular cast member in Season 4. I still have fond memories of the movie, but a sequel is probably even further out that it has ever been.
Constantine was a brilliant movie! The real reason Constantine wasn't that big of a hit because it was an adult movie. Justiceleague & Avengers are purely aimed at kids and young adults. Since there are 3 times the kids - those bullshit movies end up making billions. And of course, blockbuster doesn't mean the movie was good.
