First images from CONSTANTINE released

The first images from the upcoming NBC series Constantine have been released. Both show title character John Constantine, played by British actor Matt Ryan.

Constantine is based on the classic DC Comics title Hellblazer and focuses on a chain-smoking Liverpudlian con-man who helps defend the world from supernatural forces. Keanu Reeves starred in a 2005 movie version which got a lukewarm critical reception.

The pilot for the new series was produced by David S. Goyer (writer of Dark City, the Blade trilogy and Christopher Nolan's Batman films, as well as, less inspiringly, Man of Steel), written by Daniel Cerone (Dexter) and directed by Neil Marshall (The Descent, Black Sails, Game of Thrones).

Fuck yeah Constantine. Those are some impressive credits on the production team, I hope it delivers. Do you know if there's any information on when it comes out? I've not been able to find anything.
Also, just a minor detail, but I would hesitate to describe Constantine as a fighter against the supernatural. That could make him sound like some sort of hero, which he most definitely is not.

I'm assuming, if they get the full season order, it would debut this September.

Oh I do hope they have the guts to write him as the terrible person he is. (With redeeming - sorta - qualities, of course! I'd rather him on my side than off it. But terrible.)
