Constantine was released in 2005, when it pleased the general public much more than the specialized critic, but one thing has survived very well in time: the performance of Keanu Reeves as John Constantine, who is almost as cultured as other characters of the actor, Neo and John Wick. Constantine was not exactly a box office success and the film never ended up winning a sequel. The director, Francis Lawrence, says he is still interested in the sequel and, to our delight, Reeves too.
The revelation came through Lawrence's interview with Slashfilm, when he explained that the entire team was interested in making a sequel, but wanted to go even deeper into the adaptation. Constantine was released with an indicative rating for over 13 years old, but the intention was to make a sequence with an R rating, that is, for over 17 years old.

Lawrence even revealed that he worked in a sequence for some time and that, now, the team has returned to talk about the subject. "Keanu, producer Akiva Goldsman and I really talked about it," he said. Despite the intentions, the rights of the comics ended up taking another turn and the title is involved in other plans after so long. It is undeniable, however, that fans' outcry for Keanu Reeves may change what is being planned for the character.
The director also regretted not being in control of the situation. "I don't even remember who has it, but with all these shared universes that exist now, with Constantine being part of Vertigo, which is part of DC, people have plans for these shared universes," he recalled. “You know, possibly different Constantines and things like that. Now, we don't have that character available for TV or cinema, which is a drag. ”

Lawrence demonstrated that he did not understand the fact that Constantine was being commented and planned without the work being offered to the original team. "I think it's kind of crazy when you have Keanu, who would love to make another Constantine, we want to make another Constantine, and people are like, 'Oh, no, we have other plans,'" he said.
