Netflix’s TV series, Lucifer, is successfully gaining fans as they binge-watch the show. A new character in the series, Constantine, is stirring fans’ imaginations as they are moved to imagine Keanu Reeves in the role.
Still far away in the future, Lucifer season 6 is already a fan favourite thanks to Keanu Reeves’s 2005 character, Constantine. Constantine joined the show and left Lucifer season 4 at a major cliffhanger. Subsequently, the character will also be a part of Lucifer season 5. Could Keanu Reeves reprise his role as Constantine in Lucifer season 5? Well, one can hope!
- Coronavirus hits the Satan, production of Lucifer season 5 is halted
- Will Constantine come back in season 5 of Lucifer?
- Who is a better Constantine— Keanu Reeves or Matt Ryan?
Coronavirus hits Satan
Coronavirus has put a halt on many productions. Recently, the production of Lucifer season 5 was halted due to worldwide paranoia. Until now it was unclear when was the next season going to go live on Netflix. There was no release date pattern in the past seasons. While Lucifer season 4 was released in May 2019, season 3 went live in October 2017.
There are no ritualistic releases when it comes to this Netflix show. So, while fans knew that production was in process, there was no way to analyse when they would get to see Lucifer (and Constantine) again. Yet it was anticipated that it would be in 2020. But now that the production is on a break due to coronavirus, Lucifer season 5 release date might not be before 2021.
While it is a far-fetched imagination that Keanu Reeves can come to the show, fans do envision the character of Constantine to come back for season 5 of Lucifer.
Who is a better John Constantine— Keanu Reeves or Matt Ryan
The makers of Lucifer chose Matt Ryan to cameo as the show’s Constantine in season 4. John Constantine is a DC comics anti-hero who is an occult detective and con man. Before Constantine appeared in Netflix’s series Lucifer (2019), he was famously portrayed by Keanu Reeves in Constantine movie (2005).
Constantine’s box office collection was $230.9 million on a $100 million budget. With this movie, Keanu Reeves created the first cinematic image of John Constantine for fans. Now with Lucifer Season 4 (and hopefully 5 too), Matt Ryan is challenging Keanu Reeves’ image of Constantine.
Many fans believe that Matt Ryan is doing an excellent job in perfecting the role of the DC antihero. But others are still wishfully hoping that Lucifer’s makers choose Keanu Reeves over Matt Ryan for season 5.
In fact, a petition to Netflix is asking for John Hancocks. Their cause is to make Keanu Reeves as Jesus in Lucifer season 5. Since Constantine’s role is already assigned to Matt Ryan (even though it was just a cameo in season 4), this made fans turn creative in how to bring Keanu Reeves to the next season of Lucifer.
Who do you think portrayed Constantine better— Keanu Reeves or Matt Ryan? Do you want Keanu Reeves to reprise his role of John Constantine in Lucifer season 5? Or do you think he would make an ideal Jesus? Share your views with us in the comments below.
