With the release of NBC’s new show “Constantine” drawing closer a new TV spot has been released showcasing one of John Constantine’s closest and straight from the page friends Zed. Like John’s close friend Chaz, Zed is making the move from comic to screen.
Executive Producer Daniel Cerone spoke about what type of role Zed would play in the Constantine series saying “She’s someone who can go toe-to-toe with John, and that’s ultimately something we felt like we needed. We wanted a more dynamic relationship, as opposed to someone who is a teacher/mentor and a student. It just didn’t feel as fertile and rich of an area as just a strong a man and a strong woman who are both very different.”
After a recent promo image showing fans a comic styled look at three of the character tow of which we know, Matt Ryan as John and Angélica Celaya as Zed Martin, but also our first look at Papa Midnite. We know from the comics that John and Zed have had a romantic relationship and the first episode we see Zed is called “Trust” we may see Zed and John lock horns before we see them trust each other.
We will see how Zed and John Constantine fair against or with each other later this month on NBC. Constantine will air Friday, October 24th at 10/9c, on NBC.
