Despite its success in the comics, the film starring Reeves failed, grossing just $ 230.9 million at the box office.

The idea of a sequel to Constantine had been raised before, and director Francis Lawrence said in 2011 he would love to make a “scary adult version:
“It’s interesting that over the years, Constantine seems to have become … like he has this kind of cult following, which has been great. It’s been embraced. It would be great to think of a sequel, and if it does. if we did, and we’ve been trying to find one, it would be great to do the really dark and scary version. We got stuck in that strange no-man’s-land PG-13 – R, and we should do the scary version of hard-R, which I’d love to do. ” .
