Constantine: City Of Demons – Trailer

I’ve never thought that Matt Ryan’s portrayal of John Constantine was a particularly good one, though I don’t blame him more than the casting. For a start, Constantine is the comics is physically lanky and more roguish than Ryan played him. Ryan says all the right things, but never quite does so convincingly. Then there’s […]

I (Might) Have A Problem With Vertigo

According to The Hollywood Reporter, DC Comics is relaunching their Vertigo imprint, though I wonder why it stopped in the first place.
