NBC’s new supernatural TV show has Matt Ryan’s character, John Constantine, in a tug between Heaven and Hell. Pictured in the newly revealed comic book style poster for the show, Constantine sits in the middle of the two sides.
How’d he get into this position? Well the new trailer reveals all of that. Watch the trailer below.
As a new TV spot for Constantine illustrates, the show’s reluctant hero has something of a dark past that involves a ritual gone wrong and Constantine accidentally sending a young girl to hell, damning his own soul in turn. In the pilot episode Constantine is voluntarily locked up in Ravenscar Psychiatric Facility and is attempting to recover from the trauma of the event, but it isn’t long before he finds himself drawn back into the world of the supernatural.
