Keanu Reeves won't reprise his film role on NBC's “Constantine,” but showrunner and executive producer Daniel Cerone thinks the supernatural horror series may be better off without him. “Some people really enjoyed Keanu in the role,” Cerone told TheWrap. ”but we felt more of an obligation to stay true to the character. Movies are often driven by star talent and when you have someone like Keanu Reeves who wants to play the role, then you sort of morph the role around the actor.” See photos: 19 Best and Worst Superheroes to Hit TV: What's Flown?

‘Constantine’ Review: Matt Ryan's Antihero Charms Overcome Standard Genre Trappings

1 hour ago

There are no new ideas under the sun, and there are certainly very few new ideas on television. How many medical and legal dramas can you count that are on the air right now? So it should come as no surprise that NBC's latest supernatural thriller “Constantine” feels very familiar. In fact, you could say that it feels a lot like The CW's “Supernatural,” in more ways than one. It's not to say that NBC derived this new series from the decade-old story of the Winchester brothers. “Constantine” is based on “Hellblazer,” a comic that ran from 1988-2013, and John. »
