Close

Warner Brothers is beginning to make some big moves in the race to catch up to Marvel.

The company has added another DC Comics inspired show to a television lineup: Constantine will appear on NBC.

The new show will be executive produced by David S. Goyer, who has been rumored to be writing the upcoming Justice League Movie, as well as Batman vs. Superman, as well as Daniel Cerone.

According to indiewire, Constantine is a con-man-turned-detective who battles demons from beyond.

The character of Constantine was last seen on screen in director Francis Lawrence's 2005 film which starred Keanu Reeves. No star has been announced to take on the role for the television version.

The news came just days after Warner Bros. announced a Commissioner Gordon series, Gotham, which will air of Fox.

Constantine will be executive produced by David S. Goyer, who has been rumored to be writing the upcoming Justice league Movie, along with Daniel Cerone (The Mentalist).

Goyer is currently writing the script for Batman vs. Superman, and has been making headlines by defending his controversial ending to Man of Steel.

One thing Goyer can promise about Batman vs. Superman is that he will be sticking to his usual methods and just writing what feels right, instead of focusing on fan input.

"From a fan point of view, we're conscious of that when you're working on these things, but you can't let yourself be paralyzed by that," he said. "At the end of the day you still have to create something and if you think, 'What would the fans like' or 'What will the audience like' then you stop being creative. You have to write the story that you want to write and hope that people want to see it."

Batman vs. Superman arrives in theaters July 17th, 2015. Constantine will air on NBC.
