Matt Ryan Talks On His Arrow Appearance


Matt Ryan has given us a terrific John Constantine on the NBC’s Constantine and despite a cancellation will be returning in the role on the upcoming Arrow episode “Haunted” and TVGuide was able to catch up to him for a discussion on his return.


“They moved heaven and Earth to get me here,” Ryan told TV Guide. “I was starting rehearsals for a play with Keira Knightley in New York on the first of September. And originally, where the episode sat in the season, I wouldn’t have been able to do it because of my schedule. But everybody just pulled together and moved some things around and really made it work.”


“There is not much that I can say about the plot,” Ryan offered, but does reveal Oliver calls on him. “There’s a little history between them… I would not say that they are friends. I would say that they are acquaintances who have a past. John owes him.”


Team Arrow isn’t prepared for the supernatural issues Sara is going through, nor are they prepared for the cocky attitude from her chain-smoking savior. “John knows there are worlds beyond our world, and he is used to dealing with these things on a day-to-day basis,” he explained. “So bringing him into a scenario with a group of people who have never witnessed anything like this is just fascinating. And John is an arrogant bugger too, so they are a little thrown off by him. You know, he’s the guy who will give the finger to the devil. So you have this arrogant, trench coat-wearing guy… and Oliver Queen. It’s great!”

My name is Eric and I am loving this current comic book boom, I was around for the first one with Superman: The Movie, Supergirl(being the first female and crossover film) and Batman and have been enjoying the resurgence since Blade. Can't express how much I cannot wait for WB & DC to take back the film universe but until than I love the TV shows we have gotten. I only started reading comics about 10 years ago but am connected more to DC over Marvel or any other major company. If you wanna chat feel free to contact me
