No Smoking Allowed! John Constantine Will Need A Nicotine Patch In CONSTANTINE

Producer David Goyer (Man of Steel) revealed not too long ago that they were negotiating with NBC about allowing John Constantine to smoke in the series, but the director of the pilot - Game of Thrones Neil Marshall - has now confirmed that it won't be happening. Read on for details!

Constantine

In a recent interview with Collider, Constantine director Neil Marshall was asked about whether or not Matt Ryan's John Constantine will be allowed to smoke in the series, and the answer might just disappoint some fans! "No we’re not. It’s the one thing, a compromise I guess. On network it’s the one thing you can’t smoke on network. That’s one of his character traits. We’re working around that. We’re trying to get aspects of it in there as much as possible. We’ll see." As you may already know, the comic book version of Constantine suffers from lung cancer, but actually rids himself of it after selling his soul to two demons and tricking them into curing him. It's feasible then that this series takes place after those events, hence why he's no longer a smoker.

At the end of the day, it really doesn't seem like that big of a deal, especially when the trailer showed that they've got so many other aspects of the character's personality right. Either way, Marshall promised that NBC won't be holding back in other areas! "Hannibal is on NBC, and that’s pretty dark and disturbing. Whatever the regulations are, you can be as dark and disturbing as you want and we’re going to go in that direction. The intention is to be as dark and scary as possible with the show. And that was our whole kind of plan going in, to make it scary. So we’re going to explore all kinds of things. But the smoking is very frustrating. Who knows where it will go; where the story will go; where the character will go? There’s still lots of options." What do you guys think about these comments? Does John NEED to smoke?
