Here’s the synopsis:
A decade after a tragic mistake, family man Chas and occult detective John Constantine set out to cure Chas’s daughter Trish from a mysterious supernatural coma. With the help of the mysterious Nightmare Nurse, the influential Queen of Angels, and brutal Aztec God Mictlantecuhtli, the pair just might have a chance at outsmarting the demon Beroul to save Trish’s soul. In a world of shadows and dark magic, not everything is what it seems, and there’s always a price to pay. The path to redemption is never easy, and if Constantine is to succeed, he must navigate through the dark urban underbelly of Los Angeles, outwit the most cunning spawns of hell, and come face to face with arch-nemesis Nergal – all while battling his own inner demons!
Constantine: City of Demons has been produced in a dual format – initially as animated shorts, the first five of which appeared on CW Seed. With a runtime of 90 minutes, the feature-length Constantine: City of Demons film has over an hour of never-before-seen content including the film’s thrilling climax).

Constantine: City of Demons Enhanced Content:
- The Sorcerer’s Occultist – Understanding John Constantine – An exciting examination of the powers and abilities used by DC’s working-class occult detective, John Constantine.

- The Sorcerer’s Occultist – Understanding John Constantine
A practitioner of magic, and one that would not shy away from using the knowledge of the occult to his advantage, John Constantine has inadvertently found himself in a vast chasm between the light of heaven and the hellfire of the world below. He has a massive array of spells, incantations, curses and rituals that he can use to his advantage. He tries to rely heavily upon his knowledge of the occult, but at times he must use his deft hand at magic to help save the day. From the mythology surrounding the trench coat, being imbued with demonic power, to the blood transfusion with the devil’s blood that Constantine was forced to take on to be freed from his lung cancer, these aspects of his power will be placed under the microscope to reveal the depth of his abilities. The film “City of Demons” does a splendid job of capturing the John Constantine approach to life and adventure. He’s an occultist, he’s a sorcerer, and did we mention that he can time travel as well? Interviews will include various DC Comics experts that can provide details of Constantine’s abilities in these often overlooked reaches of the world of Superhero.
While the live-action NBC series had issues with portraying Constantine’s sexuality, his recent live-action appearances in the Arrowverse have been much better. Matt Ryan will also be joining DC’s Legends of Tomorrow Season 4 as a series regular.
