J.J. Abrams’ Constantine Still Moving Forward
Published 1 year ago
With the cancellation of the release of Batgirl, a lot of fans were worried what other properties were going to get the axe. Star Wars director J.J. Abrams was said to be working on a project for DC, and while some thought the project would be cancelled, it’s apparently still a go.
According to Deadline, Abrams’ Constantine reboot is said to be ‘on solid ground and moving along.’ WB Discovery CEO David Zaslav is said to be a fan of Abrams’ work, so it’s likely any of his projects won’t end up cancelled—even if Constantine is said to be a smaller project—which DC is said to be moving away from.
For now, rumors are going around that WB has a new 10-year-plan for DC that is no different than Marvel’s run with the Infinity Saga. It’s also unclear what Zaslav’s stand is going to be when it comes to Zack Snyder and his fans, because it looks like Ben Affleck is coming back for some Batman roles in the future.
Besides Constantine, other projects that are still said to be in development include the Black Superman movie from Ta-Nehisi Coates as well as Zatanna from Emerald Fennell. Not to mention there’s also the sequels to Joker, Aquaman, and The Flash; plus Blue Beetle which is still undergoing production.
Admittedly people are still disappointed about Batgirl, which was said to have tested well with audiences. Maybe there’s wiggle room for a future release, but as of now, people are waiting to see what the new management of WB is going to do.
No release date has been set for J.J. Abrams’ Constantine reboot.
