Constantine: 15th Anniversary Reunion Comic-Con@Home Panel

Keanu Reeves, director Francis Lawrence, and producer Akiva Goldsman reunite to reflect on the making of the 2005 DC Comics adaptation. Moderated by Collider’s editor-in-chief Steven Weintraub.

Constantine is a 2005 American superhero film directed by Francis Lawrence, in his feature-length directorial debut, and starring Keanu Reeves as John Constantine. Rachel Weisz, Shia LaBeouf, Tilda Swinton, Pruitt Taylor Vince, Djimon Hounsou, Gavin Rossdale, and Peter Stormare co-star. With a screenplay by Kevin Brodbin and Frank Cappello, the film is based on DC Comics Hellblazer comic book, with plot elements taken from the “Dangerous Habits” story arc (issues #41–46) and the “Original Sins” story arc. The film portrays John Constantine as a cynic with the ability to perceive and communicate with half-angels and half-demons in their true form. He seeks salvation from eternal damnation in Hell for a suicide attempt in his youth. Constantine exorcises demons back to Hell to earn favor with Heaven but has become weary over time. With terminal lung cancer, he helps a troubled police detective learn the truth about her twin sister’s death while simultaneously unraveling a much larger and darker plot.
