Back in November, Matt Ryan reprised the role of John Constantine for a special guest appearance in The CW’s Arrow, prompting rumours that the character could be lined up for a recurring role as part of the roster of DC’s Legends of Tomorrow.
Well, it doesn’t look like that is going to be the case, as executive producer Marc Guggenheim has revealed to CBR that the crossover was planned before Constantine’s cancellation by NBC, and that it was always intended to be a one-off.
“Back when Constantine was on, we were talking about a crossover. Then Constantine wasn’t on, so we stopped talking about a crossover. It took a while. I think it was actually something Matt Ryan and Stephen Amell started talking [about]. It was always in the cards. When we were given the character, we were given the character with the understanding and the agreement that this is a one-off.”
