Following the brilliant news that Matt Ryan will reprise his role as John Constantine for a one/off appearance in the massive successful Arrow. We now have a big rumour of what he will be doing in his visit in Starling City!
Its hard to say this is a spoiler considering CW themselves have heavily publicised the news that Sara Lance, who was murdered in the first episode of Season 3 in ARROW, is coming back and will play a pivotal role in the spin off, Legends Of Tomorrow.
We know that the Lazarus Pit will play a heavy role in bringing Sara back to the living and in a new role as the “White Canary”, but executive producer Marc Guggenheim has hinted that Constantine will also be playing a huge part in it all!
“Unlike Thea, who wasn’t fully dead, the consequences of using the pit on someone as dead as Sara was creates some unforeseen difficulties… and John Constantine is uniquely suited to help our team deal with those.” he said!
With magic playing a pivotal role in Season 4 and with Constantine’s one and only appearance coming in episode five and will be directed by John Badham who recently directed the Constantine episode “Danse Vaudou”, we can guess that this is the moment Sara will be brought back to the fold!
“Each year on the show, we have added and expanded the mythology with different elements. In season two we introduced the idea of superpowers, last year brought in the League of Assassins, and for season four, we always had a plan to introduce magic and mysticism… We were already swimming in those waters and that’s why Constantine is this great organic little development.” Guggenheim continued to add!
Sadly though while this is a TV Event to really look forward to, it sadly could be the last time ever we see Matt Ryan in this role!
Enjoy it while you can!
