Warner Bros are reportedly working on a new Constantine film with producer J.J Abrams rumoured to be on board. Murphy’s Multiverse reports that the film will release on HBO Max as part of a plan for DC and Warner Bros to build a Justice League Dark movie. Much like the Marvel films, they would offer some solo outings for the characters before seeing them come together onscreen à la Avengers.
Charles Murphy, founder of Murphy’s Multiverse shared the below earlier today.

The film’s initial release in 2005 garnered mixed reactions. I for one really enjoyed it as an early example of the superhero/ horror crossover. A soft reboot featuring the return of Keanu Reeves has been inferred but not confirmed. Reeves is arguably at his most popular right now with everything he touches turning to gold (John Wick) and could give him a multi-film deal if played right.
We’ll update you as it develops.
