We already know that Jim Corrigan, a.k.a. The Spectre, is heading to NBC’s upcoming DC TV series Constantine – with Emmett Scanlan (Guardians of the Galaxy) set to portray the character – and now executive producer David S. Goyer (The Dark Knight Trilogy, Man of Steel) has spoken about the possibility of delving further into DC’s supernatural universe during an interview with Screen Rant. Read what he had to say below…
“I think you’ll see some of those…If the show takes off…even within the first 12 episodes we’ve introduced two or three characters from the broader DC universe that are not just exclusively from Hellblazer. Corrigan has been mentioned, but there’s a couple of other characters we haven’t talked about that will show up as well. If the show takes off and we get our back nine and come back a second season, we sort of have access to that whole corner of the occult universe… [Swamp Thing] has been thrown around. It’s not something I think we’d attempt in the first season. We need to make sure that we can pull off the special makeup effects. We don’t want to do a cheesy version of Swamp Thing. It’s a lot easier to do Doctor Occult or Zatanna or Jim Corrigan than it is to do Swamp Thing. So we’ll see.”
