Right off lets peek at the trailer for the new NBC show...

Few things of note. The look is pretty spot on. Hey hes blond an a Brit! Now to look at that 2005 movie...

looks was off but Keanu Reeves has the character fairly well pegged. But looked nothing like him. Note the lighter? Yeah NBC says no smoking....

"We’ve known for some time that a cigarette-smoking John Constantine might not be featured in the upcoming Constantine TV show, as producer David S. Goyer previously said it was under negotiation with NBC. Now it seems it’s official – the famously cancer-stricken, chain-smoking Constantine will not be allowed to light up so much as a single cigarette during his self-titled series.

During a recent interview with Collider, Constantine pilot director Neil Marshall (The Descent, Game of Thrones) confirmed that the occult detective will be missing what many would consider an essential ingredient of the character – a move largely attributed to network standards and practices. That loud sound you just heard was the force of a thousand sighs from Constantine fans who hoped NBC might faithfully adapt the character.

On the surface, one wouldn’t think the loss of a single personality trait would be enough to derail as well-drawn a character as John Constantine, but it really can’t be overstated just how iconic an aspect ofHellblazer John’s addiction is. There’s a reason that the 2005 Constantine film starring Keanu Reeves made sure to retain the title character’s smoking habit, despite jettisoning many other recognizable aspects of his look and background.

Taking away Constantine’s cigarettes is almost akin to taking away Batman’s orphan origin or Superman’s status as the last son of Krypton. It’s an integral part of who he is, one made obvious by the fact that almost any picture of the character includes a lit cigarette dangling from his lips."

Always wondered If NBC has a special unit that just sits an thinks.. how can we screw this up? Code named them S.N.A.F.U.

Any way might check it out. Less enthusiastic to say the least.
