The 2005 Constantine was a disappointment. … From what we have been told, the DCEU version will be a soft reset and a sequel to the 2005 film, with initial talks with Keanu Reeves and Tilda Swinton.
The film released in 2005 would have a restart and Warner Bros wishes Reeves has the leading role. Constantine, released in 2005, was for many fans of the DC Comics character, a disappointment. One of the strongest criticisms of the film is that it abandoned the British origins of the protagonist in favor of making it American.
The positive points were the participation of Peter Stormare and Tilda Swinton as Lucifer and Gabriel, respectively; as well as visual effects.
However, despite criticism, Constantine has become a cult film for some viewers who admire Keanu Reeves.
This is how Reeves would return to the role of the memorial hunter. This is reported by the We Got This Covered website, which indicates that Warner Bros plans to bring John Constantine to the DCEU.
The actor would not be the only one in the company’s plans since Tilda Swinton would also be in talks to return to the franchise
Regarding the plot of the film, it would tell how Gabriel wishes to take revenge on Constantine for what he did in the first film.
If you remember, at the end of the 2005 film, the hero could be seen manipulating Gabriel to lose his divine protection, allowing Lucifer to burn his wings and make her mortal. Apparently, in this new movie, she will be seen trying to recover her divine abilities and defeat the hero, which would make the film a sequel.
Another option would be a restart for the character, which would make him more faithful to the comic. This means that Constantine will be British and with blond hair, as seen in the series aired in 2014 and canceled after 13 episodes.
