If you’ve been wondering what we’ll see Matt Ryan be up to as Constantine in the mid-season premiere of ‘Legends of Tomorrow‘ titled “Daddy Darkhest,” then you’ll be happy with this synopsis and teaser! After a crushing one season cancellation on NBC, we’ve all been wanting more of Constantine, and now the character will be more visible, at least on ‘Legends of Tomorrow.’ While this shouldn’t get anyone’s hopes up that the series will return, we can at least get more of Ryan’s fantastic take on the Hellblazer.
With the character already showing up in the fourth season of ‘Arrow,’ it was only a matter of time before we were able to see him again in the Arrowverse. And now the CW has released a better look at what Constantine will be up to when he joins the ‘Legends of Tomorrow’ team:

As to how he’ll play into the plot, the synopsis goes as follows:
After Sara’s (Caity Lotz) encounter with Mallus, the Legends are paid a visit by
John Constantine (guest star Matt Ryan), a demonologist detective. The Legends
agree to accompany him to a present-day psychiatric hospital and they are surprised
to discover who Constantine is trying to help. During the exorcism, Sara, Leo
(guest star Wentworth Miller) and Constantine go missing, leaving Ray (Brandon Routh)
and Zari (Tala Ashe) to try to take care of Constantine’s client. Meanwhile, Amaya
(Maisie Richardson-Sellers) and Nate (Nick Zano) once again come face to face with Kuasa.
Dominic Purcell also stars.
While I’m not thrilled that we’ll see “Constantine go missing” it could be a hint that he’ll have more of a recurring role in the upcoming season than had been initially hinted at.
