Keanu Reeves is bringing back his fan-favourite character of John Constantine in the sequel to the blockbuster movie Constantine (2005). The sequel announcement has been made recently and after 17 years ago, the film is being revived for a sequel. As much as fans love Reeves and the roles he has played in the past, many are not very excited about the Constantine sequel. Let’s find out what that it is and how the netizens are showing mixed a response to the Constantine sequel announcement.
Constantine sequel greenlit
The sequel of Constantine has been greenlit by Warner Bros, which had also backed the first part. Constantine was based on DC Comics’ Hellblazer comic book and raised over USD 230 million in worldwide gross when it was released in 2005. The film featured Reeves as the titular exorcist who has the ability to perceive and communicate with half-angels and half-demons in their true forms and can travel between Earth and Hell. The movie has both style and substance and the characters make it an entertaining watch.

After the Constantine sequel was confirmed to be in development, the reactions of the fans have not been very positive. Many said that the first movie was not ‘good enough’ to merit a sequel. Others claimed that 17 years is too late for the sequel announcement. Check out some of the reactions below.
