What do you think? Are you a fan of Constantine? Will you watch the new special?
Well for those who DO like animation, yes, very interested. Loved their Vixen mini-series and hey they’ve been on roll with this stuff so I’m not complaining. Could lead into a un-cancellation, you never know.
Sorry…I stopped watching cartoons a long time ago…even the good ones.
I enjoyed and miss the orginal show but I have zero interest in an anamated version. Sorry.
I wish they would bring back Constantine I miss the show. It would be a great addition to the CW line up.
