John Constantine appears in a new, rather surreal adventure where he must find out the whereabouts of the two creators of his current television show on NBC.
If that wasn’t strange enough, this isn’t a live action short. The three and a half minute film has been produced in claymation (stop motion animation using clay figures). This isn’t a fan project either, televisions Constantine, Matt Ryan voices the main character on the video which appeared recently on the official DC Entertainment YouTube channel.
Is this a way to flag up interest for the show? NBC is currently undecided on Constantine’s future which is a shame as many fans are really enjoying this take on the character who last appeared on screen in the feature movie starring Keanu Reeves.
