Earlier today it was announced that Keanu Reeves and director Francis Lawrence would be re-teaming for a sequel to Constantine (2005). JJ Abrams’ Bad Robot will produce the sequel with Akiva Goldsman penning the script. Abrams was initially developing a series focusing on the character for HBO Max, but that, and Madam X has been shelved, marking a major change of direction. Fans have been wondering what was happening with Abrams’ Justice League Dark projects, and now we know. One fan celebrated the news by creating a new piece of fan art that shows a very different look for Reeves as the character.
An artist on Instagram that goes by the handle of @Spdrmnkyxxiii, revealed a new piece of fan art that shows Reeves as John Constantine with a trench coat in tow. The fan art gives the actor the characters signature blonde hair this time around and it looks good. Although it’s highly doubtful that Reeves will get Constantine’s iconic blonde look, it’s definitely great to hear that he’s coming back. You can check out the fan art below!
