Social Media | Constantine 1.2 Live-Tweet

To be honest, I enjoyed the first episode of Constantine. Its Metacritic score is lower than Gotham and The Flash, but that’s to be expected. It’s a horror show aired in the ass end of Friday night. The ironic thing about Constantine is that it’s the most direct adaptation of a DC Comics title (specifically, The Saga of the Swamp Thing and early Hellblazer) currently on prime time, live-action television.

Constantine is the only current DC Entertainment live-action television adaptation with the main character not created in the Golden Age (John Constantine first appeared in the June 1984 issue of The Saga of the Swamp Thing), so ironically, he’s less old-hat than a man based on Robin Hood, a man who runs really fast, and a young version of the character that defined Detective Comics. Just saying.
