Keanu Reeves’ Constantine could be getting a sequel. Here’s everything we know about Constantine 2’s development, release date, cast, and story.
Here’s everything we know about Constantine 2. Keanu Reeves joined the DC universe back in 2005 for a reimagined version of John Constantine aka Hellblazer. Reeves’ take ditched the character’s usual blonde look and British accent, but he made the supernatural detective his own. Constantine was the feature-length directorial debut for Francis Lawrence and had hopes of being a franchise.
When Constantine hit theaters in 2005, though, it was not a huge hit. The movie grossed over $230 million worldwide but earned mixed-to-negative reviews diminishing any chance of the sequel for the time being. However, Constantine has developed a cult following over time. With Reeves’ career resurgence thanks to John Wick, calls for Constantine 2 have only grown louder, leading to plenty of rumors that the sequel will happen in some form, either as a theatrical movie or even with Reeves returning as Constantine for a Justice League Dark HBO Max series.

The interest in Constantine 2 led to Reeves and others involved with the first film discussing the possibility of the sequel happening. This raises several questions, such as the status of Constantine 2, who will be in it, and when it will be released. Here’s everything we know about Constantine 2 so far.
Constantine 2 Is Reportedly Happening
Francis Lawrence and Keanu Reeves shared their interest in making Constantine 2 in the summer of 2020, and now the sequel might actually be happening. Peter Stormare starred in the first film as Lucifer and seemingly confirmed the sequel is coming. He randomly shared an image of himself in Constantine with the caption “Sequel In The Works.” It would be strange for Stormare to declare such a definitive statement if he hadn’t discussed Constantine 2 with the studio. However, he is the only person associated with the film so far to outright say that a sequel is in development.
Constantine 2 Release Date
Warner Bros. and DC Films have yet to give Constantine 2 a release date. Since the movie has yet to be officially green-lit, the current status of the development is not known. Since Lawrence and Reeves have been talking, it is possible Constantine 2 could happen quickly once (if) it is confirmed to be on the way.
Constantine 2 Cast
If Constantine 2 does happen, Keanu Reeves will undoubtedly be back as John Constantine. He’s expressed an interest in playing the character again, and he’s already going back to one previous franchise by playing Neo again in The Matrix 4. Since Peter Stormare was the one to discuss the sequel’s development, it would appear that Lucifer will be back for Constantine 2 as well. No other actors have teased their involvement.
Constantine 2 Story Details
There are no clear clues on what Constantine 2‘s story will be about. The first movie ended rather cleanly, outside of the post-credits scene of Shia LaBeouf’s Chas Kramer becoming an angel. That could factor into the story of Constantine 2 or it could go in a completely other direction with Constantine and Midnite (Djimon Hounsou) doing other investigations. Perhaps this time it will even be properly made for its R-rating.
