Constantine/Arrow Crossover Confirmed

After months of waiting and anticipation, Constantine fans have finally been rewarded. The Hollywood Reporter has confirmed that Matt Ryan’s John Constantine is coming to Arrow as a guest character.

This is fantastic news for fans of the canceled series and personally, I can’t wait to have two of my favorite characters in one show.

Great work Hellblazers, Constantine is saved!

Episode 52 – Back From the Dead

On this fortnight’s episode of Nerd & Tie, we return after three weeks to mourn the loss of Satoru Iwata, get super confused by the upcoming Sleepy Hollow/Bones crossover, consider the ramifications of The Lone Gunmen’s return in The X-Files revival, acknowledge that San Diego Comic Con is totally a thing that happened, and note Jurassic Park 5‘s inevitability.

Also, there’s some Ant Man in the mailbag.

And if you watch the video version of the podcast, you get to watch the insanity that occurs when Trae’s computer freezes while we’re trying to stop recording the show.

It’s kind of hilarious.

‘Arrow’ Producers Really Want a Constantine Appearance

Look, Constantine got cancelled, and that sucks. We were pretty fond of that show here at Nerd & Tie, and were sad to see it go.

But that may not be the last we’ve seen of Matt Ryan as John Constantine.

You see, the people behind Arrow want to bring Constantine into the CW’s DC TV Universe (or Arrowverse as many have dubbed it). Stephen Amell has made previous comments about this, as has Arrow Executive Producer Marc Guggenheim.

Well Arrow Executive Producer Wendy Mericle has also expressed the desire, as she and series star Stephen Amell told IGN:

“Yeah, we really want to do it,” said Mericle. “It’s something we’ve been talking to DC about and it’s just a question of some political things, but also the actor’s schedule. We’re trying to work it out, but we don’t know 100 percent if it’s going to happen.”

“Fingers crossed,” added Amell.

“But we’re really optimistic and we would love to have him,” said Mericle.

The appearance would make sense, as Arrow will be diving more and more into the mystical side of it’s world in the upcoming season — so I hope it happens.

Because I need more Constantine in my life.


Stick a Fork in It, ‘Constantine’ is Done

Constantine was one of our favorite shows of this last season, and all of us were sad to see it get the axe by NBC.

There had still been some hope that the show would continue, as the showrunners were trying to still shop it around to other networks and streaming services. Well, sadly it looks like that remaining hope has evaporated.

Constantine Executive Producer Daniel Cerrone released an official statement Continue reading Stick a Fork in It, ‘Constantine’ is Done

Episode 47 – The Good, the Bad, and the Unexpected

On this episodes we break things down into the Good (show renewals), the Bad (show cancellations) and the Unexpected (which is what it sounds like). Listen to and watch us celebrate iZombie, Agent Carter and Agents of SHIELD all getting new seasons. Listen to us lament the loss of Constantine… and Helix.

Then we get to Red Dwarf‘s two new upcoming series, a Myst TV show, and a thoroughly unneeded third installment in Frank Miller’s Dark Knight saga.

We also share our thoughts on No Brand Con and read the biggest mailbag in a long while.

This episode was sponsored by Zach Fisher. You can sponsor episodes too.

Pensacola Comic Con, Pensacola, FL – Aug 8-9, 2015

‘Constantine’ Officially Gets Cancelled By NBC

Constantine has been in a precarious position for a while, not having done the ratings that NBC had hoped for. Of course, since the show had the Friday night death slot, I’m not sure what they expected… but I don’t work in network television.

Sadly though, the news came via a tweet from showrunner Daniel Cerone that Constantine will not be seeing a second season on NBC earlier today.

Cerone apparently is trying to shop the show around to keep it going, and while I wish him the best of luck — the odds are slim.

It’s too bad really – Constantine was a pretty decent show even if it was too afraid to portray its lead as bisexual (as John is in the comics). I really enjoyed it, and am sad to see it go.

Episode 37 – 2014 in Review

On this episode of Nerd & Tie we do our second annual “Year in Review” episode – designed to take you across a magical wonderland of the best and worst that 2014 had to offer. From the wonders of the Flash and Constantine to the horrors of the non-Gundam Sunrise anime series, we cover everything and anything worth covering.

I think.

Two of us were pretty sick this episode, so we’re not sure what actually made it in and what wasn’t a fever dream.

PSA: “Constantine” Moving to 8/7C on January 16th

NBC’s official Constantine tweeted out the following, regarding the show’s return from mid-season hiatus on January 16th:

We’re pretty big fans of Constantine here at Nerd & Tie, but the show has had some rocky ratings. Moving timeslots is risky, but an earlier one like this is usually a good sign.

Or at least that’s what I’m telling myself.

Episode 35 – Video Unavailable

On this episode, we talk about the Jurassic World Trailer, the Episode VII trailer, Oscar Isaac’s casting as Apocalypse, Constantine’s order getting cut, Guillermo del Toro’s Justice League Dark script, Wonder Woman getting a woman director and, finally, our trip to Daisho Con.

We did a video version for this episode, but I (Trae) had my computer crash before it could be saved — so let’s just be glad the audio version survived, okay?

This has been a stressful evening.

Guillermo del Toro Has Submitted a Justice League: Dark Script

So after expressing interest in doing a Justice League: Dark film for several year, Guillermo del Toro has finally submitted his script, to Warner Brothers.  Tentatively titled Dark Universe, the film would follow some of the more magical members of the DC Universe. ( Such as Swamp Thing, Zatanna, John Constantine and Deadman.)

Its worth noting that DC did not list Justice League: Dark among their upcoming movies and its not like del Toro doesn’t have a full plate of projects already, but the fact that he appears to be serious about making my one of my dreams come true is really, REALLY exciting.
