John Constantine is back and this time he’s animated. No, I don’t mean his demeanor, I mean the medium chosen to present his latest adventure to the public, for the upcoming DC animated film Constantine: City of Demons. Because I don’t want to bore you with a bunch of nonsense about how Keanu’s take on the character was better, here’s the surprisingly thorough official synopsis for the film:
“A decade after a tragic mistake, family man Chas and occult detective John Constantine set out to cure Chas’s daughter Trish from a mysterious supernatural coma. With the help of the mysterious Nightmare Nurse, the influential Queen of Angels, and brutal Aztec God Mictlantecuhtli, the pair just might have a chance at outsmarting the demon Beroul to save Trish’s soul. In a world of shadows and dark magic, not everything is what it seems, and there’s always a price to pay. The path to redemption is never easy, and if Constantine is to succeed, he must navigate through the dark urban underbelly of Los Angeles, outwit the most cunning spawns of hell, and come face to face with arch-nemesis Nergal – all while battling his own inner demons!”
Constantine: City of Demons comes out on all the usual home video formats on October 9th, but in the meantime you can check out a trailer for the movie below.
