Matt Ryan's Constantine Comes to Arrow in New Pics and Promo Footage
Constantine may be cancelled, but Matt Ryan's acclaimed interpretation of the character is alive and well, as he is making a highly anticipated appearance on Arrow next Wednesday in the fifth episode of the season, "Haunted."



In the promo, Oliver enlists Constantine's help to restore the soul of the newly resurrected Sara, who will have to be killed again if her dark side isn't reined in. According to this footage, the plan is extremely dangerous, and has the potential to kill them all (although we all know she ends up on Legends of Tomorrow, so we pretty much know how this ends). 

It's a little sad to hear Matt Ryan say "On with the show" after his show was cancelled, but at least we can all be happy that the door is open for Constantine to appear on CW shows. The character is probably a little too dark for The Flash, but it's possible that he could become a recurring character on Arrow, especially since Ryan and Stephen Amell have great buddy chemistry. The best usage of the character, however, might be on Legends of Tomorrow, especially since it's going to be an anthology series with a ton of cast turnover. Maybe he could even be a series regular in the second season, after a few of the original team members are killed off.
