Maverick conman and street magician John Constantine will go up against voodoo shaman and businessman Papa Midnite in the the upcoming Fox pilot Constantine.

Constantine will be played by the voice of Edward Kenway in Assassins Creed IV: Black Flag Matt Ryan. It is not yet clear who will play Midnite.

In the comic, the two characters have an turbulent relationship. When Constantine first meets Papa Midnite, he rips him off for fifty thousand dollars, but the two later unite to fight still more powerful enemies.

The series is expected to see Papa Midnite in a more adversarial role - though as this is only the pilot, it is possible that the voodoo shaman and British magician will later join forces. The show is set in New York, and will feature the Ravenscar Psychiatric Hospital - a location familiar to Hellblazer readers.
