Arrow,” executive producer Marc Guggenheim revealed in an interview the news of Matt Ryan the star of the now canceled Constantine will be reprising the role in the upcoming fourth season of Arrow.
“Matt is an incredibly talented actor and his portrayal of this beloved character was always something we admired. The introduction of magic and mysticism on the show this season has provided a truly organic opportunity for us to bring John Constantine to ‘Arrow’ and the CW’s DC universe. It will be a well-deserved tip of the hat to all the Constantine fans who were so incredibly supportive of that series.”
“Arrow” star Stephen Amell was vocal about his desire to work with Ryan during the #SaveConstantine campaign, and executive producer Wendy Mericle fueled the fire when she revealed that the “Arrow” team had been talking about a potential crossover with DC Entertainment. It seems as though their efforts have paid off, and the cast has subsequently taken to Twitter in order to celebrate.
“Arrow” season four is scheduled to debut Wednesday, Oct. 7 at 8 pm EST on The CW.
