NBC has officially ordered a pilot for a television series based on DC Comics's bisexual dark sorcerer John Constantine, reports Deadline.
Constantine will follow the titular mystical detective as he is pushed to protect our world from malevolent forces. The pilot is spearheaded by executive producers Daniel Cerone and David S. Goyer. Goyer previously served as script writer for Christopher Nolan's Batman trilogy and last summer's Man of Steel.
Originally a character from DC Comics' Vertigo imprint, Constantine was revealed as bisexual in an early-'90s issue of John Constantine: Hellblazer. The title would eventually run for over 20 years to much acclaim, and was adapted into a feature film starring Keanu Reeves in 2005.
Constantine currently appears in a self-titled comic book as well as Justice League Dark, which is under development as a movie, written by director Guillermo del Toro.
