NBC has found its "Constantine"! Deadline reports that Welsh actor Matt Ryan ("Collision," "Criminal Minds: Suspect Behavior," Edward Kenway in Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag) will play John Constantine, DC Comics' rogueish supernatural detective, in their upcoming television pilot.

Written by David S. Goyer (Batman Begins, Man of Steel) and Daniel Cerone ("The Mentalist"), "Constantine" follows the titular character, created by Alan Moore during his run on "Swamp Thing" but better known for his solo series, "Hellblazer." Launched as a DC Comics title, it shifted to their Vertigo imprint in 1993 and finally concluded only a few years ago after 300 issues. Constantine now exists in the "New 52" continuity as a younger man.

The series joins "Arrow," "The Flash" and "Gotham" as another DC comics-based television series.
