With the introduction of two new shows in Constantine and Gotham, we have been noticed a surprise. Not necassarly anything that constitutes the “Wow” factor but its noticeable.
The show starring the occult master himself has garnered more views on his YouTube trailer. This could come as a shock since ‘Gotham’ does have more brand recognition. After all, the name is tied to one of the most popular superheroes of all time.
As of right now, the ‘Constantine trailer has 7.4 million views whereas the ‘Gotham’-titled series has 7.3 million. Of course, it’s not a runaway for the former, it’s something that the show based off of the lesser known property, seems to be attracting more people.
Each of these shows are slated to premiere this fall. “Constantine” premieres on NBC and “Gotham” on FOX.
Summaries for both shows below.
Based on the wildly popular comic book series “Hellblazer” from DC Comics, seasoned demon hunter and master of the occult John Constantine specializes in giving hell… hell. Armed with a ferocious knowledge of the dark arts and his wickedly naughty wit, he fights the good fight – or at least he did. With his soul already damned to hell, he’s decided to leave his do-gooder life behind. But when demons target Liv, the daughter of one of Constantine’s oldest friends, he’s reluctantly thrust back into the fray – and he’ll do whatever it takes to save her. Before long, it’s revealed that Liv’s “second sight,” an ability to see the worlds behind our world and predict supernatural occurrences, is a threat to a mysterious new evil that’s rising in the shadows. And now it’s not just Liv who needs protection; the angels are starting to get worried too. So, together, Constantine and Liv must use her power and his skills to travel the country, find the demons that threaten our world – and send them back where they belong. After that, who knows… maybe there’s hope for him and his soul after all.
