DC Diehards Question Keanu Reeves’ ‘Constantine 2′ Movie!
We previously reported that a Constantine reboot was in the works and now it’s happening.
CelebnMovies247.com reports that Keanu Reeves’ voice has been heard since he spent the better part of two decades voicing his desire to play a certain occult investigator for a second time.
Which would make you think that you’d have thought the announcement of a Constantine sequel would have been the subject of unanimous praise, right?
Well, that hasn’t exactly turned out to be the case, which comes as a surprise. The first installment was a decent-sized box office success back in 2005, and the prospect of seeing Reeves headline a comic book blockbuster is arguably even more tantalizing now than it was back then, especially when both Marvel and DC have been chasing the star’s signature for what feels like forever.
And yet, as you can see from some of the reactions below, not every DC diehard is overjoyed to discover that the action icon will be diving back into the thick of the supernatural action.
I enjoyed that keaunstantine movie for what it was but it was a terrible adaptation and I’m pretty sure no Hellblazer fan actually wants him to be the DCEU’s Constantine

WBD wants to make a Constantine movie, but will also ship out a disconnected, competing show about the same character to another studio at the same time?
That makes no sense to me.

Keanu Reeves is back as John #Constantine 17 years too late This confuses me. It’s like bringing Ryan Reynolds back as Green Lantern. I like Keanu as an actor, but honestly, how and why does this connect to the future of the DCEU?https://t.co/CI4YTqmThO pic.twitter.com/ZgfFSduOTe

shouldn’t we get a Constantine movie set outside the DCEU or even a DCAU Constantine animated series? why are we making a sequel to the Constantine movie NOW?
also, was this movie any good enough to deserve a sequel or not? https://t.co/9gkGbyA63m
