Constantine 2 with Keanu Reeves still happening despite DC shakeup

Constantine 2 with Keanu Reeves still happening despite DC shakeup

A Warner Bros. spokesperson says that Constantine 2 is still going ahead, and Keanu Reeves will be reprising his role.

Although there’s been a lot of changes to the upcoming DC slate, fans of Keanu Reeves’ breathtaking face can rest easy that a sequel to 2005’s Constantine is still on the way.

The superhero horror film was based on DC Comics’ Hellblazer, and starred Reeves as the titular exorcist John Constantine. With a 46% critic score on Rotten Tomatoes, Constantine wasn’t exactly a roaring success with reviewers, but its 72% audience score proves that there’s definitely a demand to see Reeves reprise his role, and last year it was announced that a sequel is indeed on the way.

Have a blast from the past with the trailer for Constantine below.

Since then though, it’s been all change in the world of DC. The CEOs of DC Studios, James Gunn and Peter Safran, recently announced the slate for the new, rebooted DCU. Superman: Legacy (which will not star Henry Cavill, sadly), is landing first on 11 July 2025, and Batman fans can look forward to both The Batman Part II and The Brave and the Bold - the latter of which will star a new actor as the caped crusader, and will follow the adventures of Bruce Wayne and his son Damian (AKA Robin).

While this is all exciting news, it’s rather bittersweet since many DC projects have been shelved in the process of the reboot. Because of this, rumours began to spread that Constantine 2 may have been scrapped, too. Thankfully, according to Entertainment Weekly, a Warner Bros. spokesperson has confirmed that the film is still going ahead with Reeves returning to the starring role.

At the time of writing, Constantine 2 hasn’t been given a concrete release window, so it could be a while before it hits cinemas. Given that we’re almost 18 years on from the first movie’s premiere, hopefully fans won’t have to wait much longer.
