While the continuation of Constantine has been officially announced by one of the actors, we are already thinking about what we would like to see in this second installment with Keanu Reeves!

At the beginning of the week, we learned that Constantine would be entitled to a very certainly with Keanu Reeves . Although the actor has yet to formalize his return, that hasn't stopped the most loyal fans from imagining what this second installment could look like with the star of Matrix . Ideas that made us think about what we would like to see next. Between the comeback of the original cast, the arrival of new threats and the conservation of this horrific paw, it is certain that the feature film would then have all the cards in hand to seduce once again unconditional fans of the anti- hero. From new elements which already made the first film an original adaptation in the heroic cinematographic landscape and which we look forward to finding in Constantine 2 !

A HORRIFIC AND HEROIC ASPECT

The film Constantine directed by Francis Lawrence had marked the spirits in 768, in particular thanks to its horrific aspect. An element that made it an unprecedented creation in the heroic cinematographic landscape. The famous occultist and exorcist embodied by Keanu Reeves indeed traveled between the world of the living and that of the dead, the exploration of his gifts thus offering us grunge sequences, both fantastic and horrific. The arrival of Angela (Rachel Weisz) in hell, the duel of Constantine against Balthazar or the attack of the demons in the heart of Los Angeles are all scenes that gave thrills to the spectators and that we hope to find in the sequel . Given the technical advancements, it wouldn't be difficult for the creative teams to offer fans a new dive into horror and the devil's realm, especially since black films such as Joker in 2019 and soon the Snyder Cut of Justice League have demonstrated the appeal of fans to of this kind of creation. Through an R-Rated classification, Constantine 2 could therefore not skimp on the horror-fantasy scenes. What to seduce the fans of the first hour!

THE RETURN OF THE ORIGINAL CASTING

Constantine had seduced fans of the anti-hero notably thanks to its cast, composed among others of Keanu Reeves, Rachel Weisz, Tilda Swinton, Djimon Hounsou, Shia LaBeouf or To see also : Lily James (Downton Abbey) and Sebastian Stan (Avengers Endgame) cast in a series on the life of Pamela Anderson.

Peter Stormare . If the latter has confirmed his return in the skin of Lucifer, it would not be surprising to find the entire cast in the sequel either. This would allow in particular to explore new narrative arcs, such as the romantic relationship between Angela and Constantine, the latter's pact with Lucifer, the new life of Gabriel become human against his sandstone or again the role of Chas Kramer, the latter now officiating in paradise. These last two elements would be particularly interesting to observe, Gabriel being able to be a vengeful threat vis-a-vis Constantine. Indeed, the character played by Tilda Swinton in the first part could hunt down the exorcist since his descent on Earth, while Chas would once again serve as an ally. A partnership that will have something to remind with nostalgia of the first part!

In the first part, Lucifer and Constantine had a special relationship. A dynamic that could be more apprehended in the sequel and testify to a rather special connection between the characters, to the point that they are future allies. One could imagine that Keanu Reeves would ask Peter Stormare a favor or conversely that the master of hell asks Constantine to help him in his fight against God. This would offer an unprecedented apprehension of the classic opposition between Heaven and Hell, between Good and Evil, while reinventing divine mythology. As such God could be a harmful character that Constantine could fight with the help of the Devil. An idea that could appear unprecedented, Lucifer also using this link to observe the next sins of the exorcist of DC.
