One of my favorite DC Comics characters of all time MAY be joining the ranks of NBC’s supernatural drama, Constantine! Emmett Scanlon (Guardians of the Galaxy) will play the role of Detective Jim Corrigan, who in the comics becomes the avenging spirit known as The Spectre! With the appearance of Doctor Fate’s helmet in the Pilot, who knows what else or who else is going to pop up this season! Maybe the Phantom Stranger?! This geek can hope!

Constantine Jim Corrigan Emmett Scanlan

Here’s Jim Corrigan’s official character description:

Corrigan will be a homicide detective in New Orleans who is plunged into Constantine’s world of occult horrors. Furthermore, Corrigan is someone who is obsessed with justice, and who doesn’t let police procedure or red tape stop him from putting away the bad guys, even if the bad guys turn out to be inhuman.
