Keanu Reeves Confirms He Has Spoken To James Gunn About Constantine 2

Keanu Reeves confirms he’s spoken with DC Studios co-CEO James Gunn about Constantine 2. A new DC Universe is on the rise. Under James Gunn and Peter Safran’s leadership, a new interconnected universe will take shape and create a more cohesive franchise. However, prior to the big announcement in January, Warner Bros. Discovery confirmed that an old DC franchise is getting revived. Back in September 2022, Constantine 2 was officially put into development, with Reeves reprising the role of the DC Hellblazer. Constantine director Francis Lawrence will direct the sequel, but little news has emerged since the initial announcement.

While the initial DC movies and TV shows have been revealed for Chapter 1, “Gods and Monsters,” DC Studios is also looking at Elsewords properties too. But Constantine 2 was not one of the projects mentioned during the January announcement, leaving many to wonder what’s going on. Reeves recently participated in an AMA session on Reddit where one fan asked if he had spoken with Gunn about Constantine 2 while also hoping it will still happen. The actor confirmed that he has indeed had discussions with Gunn about Constantine 2 while also remaining hopeful it will happen.

TheDorkKnightreturns: Have you spoken with James Gunn at all in regards to Constantine 2? Hope we get to see it!
lionsgate [Keanu Reeves]: Yes, and me too.

Could Keanu Reeves’ Constantine Join The New DC Universe

Even though Constantine 2 was never brought up during the January event, it definitely seems as if the sequel is still happening to some degree. If Gunn had a chat with Reeves about it, that could mean a number of things. For starters, if they are considering Reeves’ Constantine universe as an Elseworlds property, then that allows his franchise not to have to worry about what the DC Universe is doing. On the other hand, if Gunn has plans to use Constantine in the DC Universe, those conversations may have been about how to make sure each incarnation can co-exist without conflicts.

With Reeves’ massive popularity and Constantine 2 getting a sequel almost 20 years later, this would be an opportunity to connect it to a shared universe. Since the first Constantine movie was a looser adaptation, they could find creative ways to integrate it into Gunn’s new continuity. It would also allow the DC Universe to have a veteran hero, as Reeves’ Constantine would likely be older than some of the main heroes, including Superman and Batman.

With HBO Max’s Justice League Dark TV show not moving forward, Constantine 2 could serve as a gateway to bring in more supernatural players into the DC Universe. Seeing Reeves’ incarnation of the Hellblazer come into contact with characters like Zatanna, Swamp Thing, and Deadman would genuinely be intriguing to see. Hopefully, as 2023 progresses, more details on Constantine 2 will begin to emerge, especially as DC Studios is getting things rolling.

‘I am officially off the market’: When Margot Robbie revealed she made the ‘conscious’ decision of not dating actors

Margot Robbie revealed her decision to not date actors because of the media scrutiny that came with a public relationship of two high-profile actors
Back in 2015, A-lister Margot Robbie made a declaration that she would not be dating any actors. The actress may have alluded to her fiance Tom Ackerley, who she married the following year in 2016. In an exclusive interview with Marie Claire, she revealed that being in a relationship as an actor herself came with its own set of challenges. She believed that dating someone who was popular would add on to the media scrutiny.

Margot Robbie opened up on why she made a conscious decision to not date actorsTalking to Marie Claire, she claimed, “I am officially off the market.” She then shared the reasoning behind her decision and added, “I made a conscious decision not to date actors.” She continued to explain, “But not because I hate actors. That’s a nasty generalization to make, and that’s not the case. People take such an interest in your love life when you have a profile, it puts a lot of stress on a relationship.”
The Barbie actress continued, “So two people with profiles, I figure it’s just double the amount of scrutiny, and I’d like to avoid that at all costs.” This came after reports of her locking lips with Tarzan co-star Alexander Skarsgard started making rounds. It was reported that she was caught kissing the actor during the Sundance Film Festival.

Margot Robbie revealed she opted for a minimal lifestyle even after becoming an actorIn the interview, Robbie also opened up about how she was adapting to fame. She shared, “I have a normal 24-year-old life. If I were a waitress, I’d probably have the exact same lifestyle. I’d go to the same clubs I go to already, live in the same house with the same housemates, hang out with the same people.”
However, Margot Robbie tied the knot with Tom Ackerley who is an English producer and actor. The duo met on the sets of 2013 movie Suite Francaise where Tom was working as an assistant director. Post marriage, both of them launched their production company LuckyChap Entertainment.

‘Rocky’ Was Quite Different In His Original Screenplay, Sylvester Stallone Claims

Sylvester Stallone took his friend’s advice on a rewrite of the original screenplay to Rocky. A few tweaks later, he was on his way to major success.
In the new Netflix documentary Sly, Stallone discussed how he initially conceived of the project, which had a much harder edge. In the early version, Rocky was depicted as a “thuggish” character, inspired by Martin Scorsese’s crime drama, Mean Streets.

But Stallone’s perspective changed when a friend read the script and thought the boxer was too cruel for audiences to actually care about him.
Stallone recalled her crying.

“She goes, ‘I hate Rocky. I hate him. He’s cruel. He hits people. He beats them up.’”
Stallone took it to heart, and asked what he could do to soften the character.

“I said, ‘what if you stop short of it?’ Like, maybe he almost did. He could have, that’s his job, but he doesn’t?’ ‘That’d be nice,’” he added. “I said, ‘What if he had a girlfriend or something?’ ‘Yeah, that’s nice.’ So I go back, start writing that: ‘Girlfriend. Nice.’”
$117 million in box office later, a franchise was born.

Stallone also revealed that actor Dolph Lundgren sent him to the hospital during one fight scene in Rocky IV.
“Dolph Lundgren… he pulverized me,” Stallone says in the documentary. “Later that night, my heart started to swell—which happens when the heart hits the chest—and then my blood pressure went up to 260, and they thought I was going to be talking to angels. Next thing I know, I’m in intensive care, where I’m surrounded by nuns, and I thought, ‘OK, that’s curtains.’”
Stallone was in the hospital for nine days following the incident, praying for “one more round.”
“For the first minute of the fight, it is going to be a free-for-all,” Stallone told Lundgren. The Swedish actor joked in a separate interview that all he did was “obey orders,” explaining, “[Stallone] was the boss. I did what he told me.”
Doctors allegedly told Stallone that he received a blow to the ribs that made his heart rattle around in his ribcage, a condition typically seen in head-on collisions. “I did hit a bus, of sorts,” Stallone joked.
