However, with the news of the sequel comes with the confirmation from Variety that the Constantine series in the works under HBO Max will not push through. Still, what's Constantine without Keanu Reeves, right? The sequel marks the beginning of the vision of Lawrence for more films.

In 2005, Constantine released in theaters following the DC Comics Hellblazer where John Constantine banners the movie. He is a cursed exorcist and demonologist who can communicate with half-demons and half-angels and could go back and forth to Hell and Earth.

There is no release date yet for Constantine 2. The first film is currently available to stream on HBO Max.
