Here we go: It sounds like the Constantine could live on post-cancellation on the CW. Arrow’s working hard to make it happen, cementing themselves as the premiere home of live-action comic book characters on TV.

Executive producer Wendy Mericle told IGN:

Yeah, we really want to do it. It’s something we’ve been talking to DC about and it’s just a question of some political things, but also the actor’s schedule. We’re trying to work it out, but we don’t know 100 percent if it’s going to happen.

... But we’re really optimistic and we would love to have him

The question that prompted the answer was that season 4 was clearly going to go heavily into mysticism, which naturally pairs with John Constantine. A few months ago, Amell told Wizard World Chicago that he had been in discussions to show up on Constantine looking for information on the Lazarus Pit. It seems likely that similar reason would bring Matt Ryan’s Constantine into Arrow.

I like this. I like this a lot. I like Matt Ryan as Constantine. I like Arrow not only committing to mysticism for season 4, but bringing him on board. Once again, the people behind Arrow take a look at everything DC has and says, “Oh, we can totally make that work.”
