DC fans have been waiting for the return of Constantine for a while. When it was reported that executive producer J.J. Abrams was working on a new series for HBO Max you could not help to be excited. Then in a report from our friends over at The Illuminerdi, we learn that production on Constantine will begin this fall, under the working title of “Chimney.” Principal photography will run approximately through February 2023, filming in both the UK and Morocco. Now it seems The Illuminerdi has some breaking news on who the new Constantine will be.

Warner Bros. Could Cast Ṣọpẹ Dìrísù As The Next Constantine

With the Constantine series production to start this fall, many might be wondering who will be playing John Constantine. Well, it seems like we might have an idea after an exclusive report from The Illuminerdi. The Illuminerdi is reporting that Warner Bros. is looking at British Nigerian actor Ṣọpẹ Dìrísù to play the role of Constantine.

“According to our sources, Warner Bros. is circling Ṣọpẹ Dìrísù to play John Constantine in the new HBO Max series. Ṣọpẹ Dìrísù is an exciting possibility with the British Nigerian actor having experience in film, television, and on stage. With this series focusing on horror and the warlock often finding himself embroiled in supernatural mysteries, Ṣọpẹ Dìrísù could be the perfect actor to take on this beloved role. With experience in horror from the film His House and action with the British action crime drama series Gangs Of London.”

Of course, like I always say please take what you read here with a grain of salt as none of this has been confirmed by DC or Warner Bros. So until then this will stay under the rumor watch file.
