Taron Egerton Is Playing Elton John In Biopic 'Rocketman'

Constantine's Matt Ryan Set to Appear on 'Arrow'

The announcement most likely comes after strong Twitter support for Ryan's return.

Story by Matt Cummings

Is it possible that the Internet is once in awhile a force for good? When NBC pulled the plug last season on its rookie effort Constantine, there was an almost instant cry from fans: get him into another DC show as soon as possible. The problem was where would he land and for how long would he be around. Both questions were answered on Tuesday at the Television Critics Association summer press tour, when it was announced that Actor Matt Ryan would reprise his role as John Constantine in one episode of season four of The CW's Arrow.

Executive Producer Marc Guggenheim more than likely is now a fanboy fave when he said the following about Ryan's return:

"We are thrilled to have Matt Ryan reprise the role of John Constantine on an upcoming episode of Arrow," said. "Matt is an incredibly talented actor and his portrayal of this beloved character was always something we admired. The introduction of magic and mysticism on the show this season has provided a truly organic opportunity for us to bring John Constantine to 'Arrow' and the CW's DC universe. It will be a well-deserved tip of the hat to all the 'Constantine' fans who were so incredibly supportive of that series."
Ryan confirmed it with the following Tweet and video:

Although he's slated for only one episode, this doesn't mean that The Hellblazer himself won't return for upcoming episodes; and there's still a chance he could join CW's Justice League wanna-be Legends of Tomorrow if fan support swells during his appearance. Season 3 dealt with some magic in the form of Ra's al Ghul, but it's always lacked a legitimate conjurer. That could change in a hurry with Ryan's return.

While some fans will also point out the less than stellar efforts behind Season 3 could have been a motivating factor, the reality is that Twitter and the Internet in general proved it could be used as a force for good. Perhaps that's enough of a reason to give the usual monster one day of respite.

Taron Egerton Is Playing Elton John In Biopic 'Rocketman'

He talked up his hope that Elton John biopic Rocketman would finally come together, and now Paramount is closing a deal to finance and distribute the film worldwide.

The film, which has been through at least one previous incarnation (Michael Gracey directing Tom Hardy in the lead) is reuniting the Eddie The Eagle team of Egerton, director Dexter Fletcher and producer Matthew Vaughn, who has been trying to get the movie made for a while, with Elton's blessing and the support of his company, Rocket Pictures.

Featuring a script by Lee Hall, Rocketman will follow the career of the artist formerly known as Reginald Dwight, from a prodigy at the Royal Academy of Music to a global superstar, through his influential and enduring musical partnership w…
