The latest news, from this years New York Comic Con, is that Ryan to reprise his role in a guest appearance as John Constantine in the forthcoming season of DC’s Legends of Tomorrow, as well as voicing the character in a new animated series from CW Seed.

After that, who knows… maybe there’s hope for him and his soul after all.
