Constantine 2: Everthing you need to know

Keanu Reeves’ Constantine 2 got some new information after a lot of uncertainty about the DC project. There was also a hint about what the movie’s rating and content might be like.

It looks like there might be a sequel to the 2005 movie “Constantine,” featuring DC’s detective of supernatural mysteries, John Constantine. Keanu Reeves played the main character in the first film, and it was well-liked, establishing Reeves as a convincing and good-hearted hero. The possibility of a “Constantine 2” has excited the dedicated fanbase, who are eagerly looking forward to the next part of the story. The upcoming sequel is becoming a highly anticipated must-watch for fans of the franchise.

When Constantine came out in 2005, it didn’t become a huge success. Even though the movie made over $230 million worldwide, it received mixed-to-negative reviews. This made it unlikely for a Constantine sequel for many years. However, Constantine gained a dedicated fanbase over time. With Keanu Reeves’ career taking off again, especially with John Wick, fans started demanding a Constantine 2, and there were many rumors about the sequel happening. Eventually, the interest in Constantine 2 got Reeves and others from the first movie talking seriously about making the sequel. Now, it’s officially announced that the long-awaited follow-up is in the works.

In the 2005 film “Constantine,” the plot revolves around John Constantine, a troubled and cynical occult detective and demon hunter. Suffering from terminal lung cancer, Constantine navigates a world where angels and demons engage in a secret war for human souls. As he investigates the mysterious suicide of a young woman named Isabel Dodson, he discovers a broader conspiracy involving the half-breed demon Balthazar and the plans of the demonic son of Lucifer, Mammon. Along the way, Constantine forms uneasy alliances, including with a police detective named Angela Dodson, the twin sister of the deceased Isabel. Constantine’s journey leads him to confront dark forces, question his fate, and ultimately challenge the balance between heaven and hell.

Director Francis Lawrence has given an unexpectedly positive update on Constantine 2. He shared that after overcoming various challenges, they now have control of the character again. In an interview with GameSpot, Lawrence mentioned that he, producer Akiva Goldsman, and star Keanu Reeves have had discussions about the potential sequel. Here’s what Lawrence had to say:

“So Constantine 2 got obviously held up by the writers strike. And we had to jump through a bunch of hurdles to get control of the character again, because other people had control of the Vertigo stuff. We have control. Keanu and Akiva Goldsman and I have been in meetings and have been hashing out what we think the story is going to be, and there’s more meetings of those that have to happen–the script has to be written–but really hoping that we get to do Constantine 2, and make a real rated R version of it.”

Constantine 2 Cast & Crew

Discussing the cast of Constantine 2, Keanu Reeves is set for a fantastic return as John Constantine. Additionally, there’s speculation that Rachel Weisz might return as Angela Dodson, and Djimon Hounsou could reprise his role as Midnite, Constantine’s frenemy. When it comes to villains, there’s a possibility that Peter Stormare might return as Lucifer, and this time, fans are hoping to see him in a black suit.

Director Francis Lawrence (known for I Am Legend and The Hunger Games 2), who directed the first Constantine, is returning to helm the sequel. Furthermore, experienced screenwriter Akiva Goldsman (renowned for A Beautiful Mind and Star Trek: Picard) is taking charge of writing the script this time. Goldsman is also set to produce the film through his company Weed Road Pictures, along with J.J. Abrams and Hannah Minghella, who are involved through Bad Robot.


The plot of Constantine 2

As for the storyline of Constantine 2, Akiva Goldsman, the writer of the original film, shared in an interview with The Deadline that,

“The character is very much Keanu and the way he and Francis saw the world of good and evil, and the wonderful and authentic noir where there is a world behind the world of good and evil coexist with our world right up close. Beyond that, we are still discovering it as I am writing the script.”

According to this statement, it appears that the movie will likely have a similar foundation to the first Constantine film, where Constantine works to ensure the boundaries between Earth and Hell remain secure. Constantine 2 could explore various plotlines, including a direct sequel where we discover that Tilda Swinton’s character, Gabriel, is still alive and returns despite not wanting to be involved in the events of Constantine (2005).

Constantine 2 Release Date

The significant question now is when Constantine 2 will be released in theaters. Given the current developments in the DCU led by James Gunn, his next major project is Superman Legacy. Following that, “Batman Brave and The Bold” is the subsequent film in the DC movie lineup.

There’s a possibility that Constantine could be set in the DC Elseworld Universe, coinciding with the setting of “The Batman.” Another scenario is that Constantine might be released in the DCU right after Superman Legacy. Given the dynamic between Batman and Constantine, if James Gunn is familiar with it, he might bring it to life in a live-action adaptation as well.

Taking these factors into account, if the production of Constantine 2 starts around Thanksgiving, it’s reasonable to anticipate the movie receiving a release date either by the end of 2025 or in the middle of 2026. This timeline would provide James Gunn with sufficient flexibility to incorporate Constantine into upcoming DCU projects.

Constantine 2 Trailer

Currently, there isn’t a trailer available for Constantine 2. However, now that it’s confirmed that the movie is in progress, we can anticipate the trailer to be released sometime next year.
