Sneak Peek: Constantine Gets Some Unwanted Angelic Attention

Constantine Premiere Video

Most people would be happy to have an angel watching over their shoulder.

Most people are not Constantine.

In this exclusive clip from NBC’s forthcoming supernatural drama, exorcist-and-all-around-spiritual-wrangler John Constantine (Matt Ryan, The Tudors) gets a visit from a heavenly host named Manny (Harold Perrineau, Lost).

But Constantine’s not happy to see the winged one, and he’s even less pleased to hear about Manny’s mission.

The new series, based on the DC comic, follows Ryan’s tortured character as he fights evil, helps those in need and battles his own demons.

Press PLAY to watch the sneak peek of the series premiere — which airs Friday at 10/9c on NBC — then hit the comments with your early thoughts on the trenchcoated crusader.

    Constantine’s outfit reminds me of Castiel’s from Supernatural. I’m not familiar with the comic books but is that how he usually dresses?

    Constantine should give a big boost for a Grimm lead-in.

    Hoping for this to fail. The movie was a boring dud and NBC had a great supernatural show in Dracula, which they stupidly canceled. The declining ratings can most likely be attributed to the poor scheduling with long and frequent breaks in between episodes. They similarly killed the Dark Shadows revival in ’91.

    Looks really good! I am looking forward to this. I was one of the few (I guess) who loved the film with Keanu and Tilda as the angel. Hope it does well and I think it will.

    Nice to see Harold too.
