Before he was a Legend, he was a lowly sorcerer trapped in an asylum, but all that’s about to change. Join us as we look back at John Constantine’s beginnings in the Arrowverse with the pilot episode of his short-lived NBC series, “Non Est Asylum.”
Though the show wasn’t conceived to be a part of the Arrowverse, Matt Ryan’s later appearance on Arrow and subsequent starring role on Legends of Tomorrow gave the producers the chance to retroactively add that version of the character to this continuity. So while it may not be considered a core Arrowverse show like the ones that air(ed) on The CW, it’s still a fascinating section of the universe that left plenty of fans wanting more. There may not be any time-traveling here, but there’s plenty of supernatural horror at the beginning of what’s come to be regarded as arguably one of the best comic book character portrayals in recent history.
You can find the series on DCU right here. And if you’re not a member already, be sure to join the Arrowverse Couch Club, as we’ll continue hosting monthly meetings and special events like this during the ongoing hiatus. Click here for more information and here to join!
