He was still considered a very limited actor and a lot of the criticism came down. To the fact that some critics were sort of comparing keno films.

The reason he's so beloved now is because christianity inherited much of western civilization through him in and we look back on roy moore fondly than if he had remained a pagan.

The western empowers really crumbling. It wasn't as populated place to be was in the east and also the danube was the most important place to protect the roman empire. And its future. So i think that's fundamentally as well constantinople. He probably extended its life for much longer than it would have been a really incredible human being an even more critical of him.

But what what happened in this historians up splitting it is dot lesion got up san from apollo that any to persecute the christians And and between him and earlier who became an impressive was the worst.

The radio station has since apologized for what it said was a technical problem that occurred when they were moving their website over to a new content management system the bbc notes that media outlets will often pre right the obituaries of high profile individuals in order to have them on hand to publish quickly in the wake of someone's passing at whatever that the broadcaster accidentally published a hundred draft stories quote. Not just to its own site but to partner sites including google and yahoo end quote is fairly mortifying almost literally i suppose i mean while it may be a common occurrence to pre right these obituaries. It certainly doesn't help. Our climate of misinformation and fake celebrity deaths trending on twitter every other day. Quoting the bbc. French businessman bernie tabby seventy seven. Who was on the list of people who had their death notice published by f. I has had his obituary published on at least two occasions by other news outlets and quotes other living humans whose obituaries were published today. By radio france international include president. Jimmy carter ayatollah committee and clint eastwood in mansfield joked on twitter quote. Lots of outraged people writing in demanding to know why they aren't important. Enough to have a pre written obituary ready and quotes and as somebody else pointed out on twitter. This is a bit reminiscent of the case of romanian man. Constantine rail you whose wife ordered a death certificate for him after he'd been gone in turkey for a decade seeking employment in losing touch with his family upon returning to romania and finding out what had happened he tried to get the death certificate overturned but the courts said he showed up too late to appeal and the death certificate for the dude standing there in their office asking about it would remain. Valid really was officially deceased for two years. During which time he was unable to find employment since all of his paperwork was invalid before the country finally overturned his death certificate in two thousand eighteen. Fortunately for those prematurely mourned by radio. France international today returning to the land of the legal living will not require jumping through quite as many hoops

Interview with Mark Constantine of Lush Cosmetics
"Back. In nineteen ninety-five I was studying in London my sister. Karen. Came to visit me that year. She'd been to London before. So on her visit, she was the guide we traveled through the market stalls Candan lock we picked up some indie records at rough trade and made a special trip to covent garden to visit a newly open shop. Called Lush I hadn't heard of it but my sister had instructions from all friends back in L. A.. Get me stuff from. Lush. Now at the time, it was one of two lush locations in the world, and this is before e commerce. So unless you went to the store, you couldn't get the products. Remember the overpowering smell of roses and lavender and honey and lemon I remember these long loaves of colorful soap laid out on tables where you could slice off a Chonkin pay for it. By weight there were bath bombs and shampoos and lotions. It looked like the produce department at a fancy grocery store. You didn't see a whole lot of plastic packaging and in front of each product, you'd find a bright colorful chalkboard with a description. It was unlike any beauty product store I had ever seen. And it probably explains why then There was a line to get in. Lush was part of a new wave of beauty companies that came onto the scene around that time. Many of them influenced by the body shock and it's iconic founder Anita Roddick who as you will hear features prominently in this story is well. The main founder of Lush Mark Constantine had already seen incredible success and then catastrophic failure by the time he launched his venture. In fact, right before mark. Open Lush. He's lost most of his money on a mail order business that went bust. But. Lush turned his fortunes. And and today it's a brand with more than nine hundred stores around the world. Now, in recent months, the pandemic has hit the company hard. For time all of its stores in the UK, the US and Australia were closed. But. Lush has also seen a massive surge in online orders and later on, we'll get an update on how mark and the company have navigated the pandemic and the global economic fallout. But first a little bit about mark's background. He grew up in weymouth seaside town in the south of England. When he was only two years old his dad's split from the family and went off to Africa and mark never saw him again while he was growing up. And his mother. She took mark and moved in with her mother marks Grandma. It was me my mom, my grandmother who really brought me up a my aunt. So. I was really bored three. Yeah. What did your mom do? She was a journalist in the local newspaper on I knew my mom had to work in order for us to to be okay. It was very, very comfortable life full of love and hugs and security. My mom was always there and I love my nine I looked up to my nine and so it was comfortable. Very nice. Obey. Feminine Life I've felt. Spoilt To be honest, obviously, my nine drilled into me the proper values as well. with proverbs and all sorts of other things you know I I had to rights repeatedly better best never them rest till. My good is better. My better best things like that. But then I guess. Around the time you were twelve. So you like you stopped living with your grandmother like Yulia mom moved out. what happened was they there was larger a my mother married the lawyer we moved to my grandmother died. I didn't realize probably until much later in my life high much that'd affected me I felt responsible. I think from my grandmother's death for most of my life because obviously I was important to her and I wasn't there anymore and I couldn't after her and she died on then my my stepfather was. Very, cold I would say and violent. But that's very typical upbringing fifties because they'd come is war gentlemen. There was a lost friends some of them had seen that friends killed or relatives and So it was you know not surprising that those people were bringing up my generation went all the best balanced people in the world. What kind of I mean what kind of kid were you? What do you remember about how you responded to those circumstances? Did you I don't know retreat into yourself or did you act out? Did you fight with your mom? What do you remember or didn't fire my mom but I force a lot with my Stepdad physical fights and they would argue we would all argue. It was just I want to say unsatisfactory which doesn't side like this is like a strange word to use it but. Certainly when I came to build my own home I, for example, never locked the front door. You know I I make an effort on those smaller things that tell people that they wanted to. Careful. Kid were you at school? Are you could student? School was still difficult for. Really. Was it was just heart for you. I. Mean there were a lot of gangs. Gangs were normal in the fifties for for everyone there were lots of gang. So I went to the grammar school, which was the best school in. The top ten percents shoots went to the grammar school. Everyone's surprise when I got in. And then I wasted it while I. was there except that I did make friends and we were in particular gang where we could make. Bombs and things. Can. Make bombs. What we were the news like. PIPEBOMBS. They were we killing sugar bombs with batons permanganate. Glycerin Fuses also savings on we went making them for the IRA season, the Perron purposes to intimidate other gang.

It's the Little Things
"For want of a nail, the shoe was lost for want of a shoe. The horse was lost for want of a horse. The rider was lost for want of a writer the message was lost for want of the message the battle was lost for want of a battle, the kingdom was lost. Small things can have reverberating effects on history both good and bad. In fourteen fifty three, the great walled city of Constantinople fell it had withstood sieges for eleven hundred years. It had held off fire from the then state of the art cannons for weeks. The Byzantine said even Ford soldiers trying to tunnel under the wall autumn Turks were finally able to overrun the great city because someone left the door open. One of the many gates in the fourteen miles of wall had been left open during the night and the Ottomans flooded in. Killing Constantine the eleventh in the battle and bringing an end to the eastern Roman Empire. My Name's Moxy and this is your brain on facts. It was a freezing Christmas night in Trenton. New Jersey during the revolutionary war. The English Colonel Johann Gottlieb Rall. Commander. Of a mercenary infantry regiment of fourteen hundred has seen soldiers from Germany sat down to a good supper and an evening of entertainment. He and his men were celebrating their recent victories over George Washington's volunteer army, and of course, the Christmas holiday. Safe from the bitter cold and the pelting sleet inside a wealthy merchants home that they had commandeered. They relaxed safe in the assumption that no one in their right mind would possibly try to cross the Delaware River at night in a blinding winter storm. Someone challenged role to a game of chess, and before long he was deep in tactics and strategy. There was a knock at the door. And exhausted young. Messenger boy came in bearing a note from loyalist farmer. It's important to remember that about a third of colonists still consider themselves to be British and didn't want the revolution. Raw paid the boy little notice took the note and put it in his coat pocket without opening it. That pocketed piece of paper would cost him and the war effort nearly. Two hours earlier and ten miles away. Washington's men had begun being ferried across the icy Delaware. River. It took over ten hours to get all twenty four hundred men over to the New Jersey side. The conditions were so adverse five men froze to death. Then began the arduous march to Trenton in the dark. The plan had been to attack the town from all sides before dawn, but the troops didn't arrive until eight am. During the attack which lasted only an hour forty of the German. Henson's were killed and the remaining thousand surrendered. Colonel was mortally wounded. When his body was found the unopened note warning of Washington's crossing was still in his pocket. If role had read it, he would surely have had his gross of professional soldiers prepared. He allowed his pride and the weather to lull him into thinking his enemy was not a threat. Had he won the battle he may well have killed George Washington James Madison James Monroe John Marshall Aaron Burr and Andrew. Hamilton The. Second, most common premise in alternate history circles behind what if Germany won World War Two is what if the south one the American civil war? Two pieces of paper dropped in a farmer's field almost brought that about. Confederate General Robert E. Lee. Whose statue in the middle of my hometown of Richmond, Virginia has recently been given the historical context. It's so sorely needed. In the form of tons of. Graffiti. Issued Special Order one ninety one during the Maryland campaign before the Battle of Antietam. In the order lead divided his army, delineating the routes and roads to be taken and the timing for the units to reconvene. Adjutant Robert H Chilton penned copies of the letter endorsed them in Lee's name. Staff. Officers distributed the copies to various confederate generals. General Thomas Stonewall Jackson in turn copied the document for one of his subordinates, major general, D H Hill who was to exercise independent command as the rearguard. A Union soldier Corporal Barton W Mitchell of the twenty seven. Th Indiana volunteers found two pieces of paper bundled with three cigars as he marched across a farm in Maryland an area recently vacated by Hill and his men after they had camped there. The order provided the Union army with valuable information, concerning the army of Northern Virginia's movements and campaign plans. Upon receiving lease lost order. Major General George McClellan leading the Union army of the Potomac proclaimed. Here is a piece of paper with which if I cannot whip Bob Ely, I will be willing to go home. He immediately moved his army in hopes of foiling lease battle plans. When Lee heard a copy of special order one, ninety, one was missing he. He knew his scattered army was vulnerable and rushed to reunite his units Antietam Creek near Sharp's Berg. Lee's troops arrived tired hungry and many were sick. The Battle of Antietam, would go down as the bloodiest battle of the American civil war with casualties recorded as twenty, three, thousand dead wounded, which was usually as good as dead or unaccounted for over the course of the half day battle. That's nearly two thousand soldiers in our one every two seconds. When night fell both sides ceased fire together, their dead and wounded. The next day Lee began the painstaking job of moving his ravage troops back Virginia. Here, some scholars argue another solitary decision had far reaching consequences. Despite having the advantage. McClellan. Allowed Lee to retreat without resistance. From his point of view, he'd accomplished his mission by forcing Lee's troops from Maryland and preventing confederate win on union soil. President, Lincoln however thought McClellan missed a great opportunity to potentially end the war three years earlier than it ultimately would.

"It's really fun to just to not have to pull that a day. She did enjoy going dark. It was it was a blast to get to do something a little darker little bit a little bit more. Cd It's not everybody has the dark side of themselves. You know. Mr Rogers had a dark side. I'm sure he did. We never thought but I'm sure it was there you know and to not feel like not only to not feel like it's wrong but to give yourself space that the more you allow it to live the more right it is. I mean there's no better freedom than that it's really exciting Bush restriction. I would do this again every day of the week twice on Tuesday it was so much. Fun I think you're GONNA see some. There are some story points that you know the Flesh Angela. An interesting way. It'd be really fun to do again. You're saying that when you're playing that type of character you don't have you don't have the restrictions of wonder so you can really go as far as until literally voice director. Wait a minute exactly. Well and the really fun thing about Angeles especially is she's in Canon but in such a subtle way that I really got to be the first person to do it. And that doesn't happen very often You know I'm one of several people. Playing wonder woman right now. And I'm so lucky to be in that cohort but Angela. At this point is kind of mine which is cool. That doesn't happen very often. It's really and isn't that the thing we say about all villain characters is they don't know they're bad guys. You Know Angela. Has She carries all of these stories that you carries all of these these spirits of the history of her city with her and she is doing what she can to fight for those voices into stand up for the people that are that make up who she is and I think that that's true of any of us. If you had to stand up for your family if you had to fight for who they are like there is no end. That I wouldn't go to for for my family like some somebody to to threaten my kid or you could see dark real fast. You could see you can see something. Something dark really quickly. And and that's all she is she. She's she's fighting for what matters to her. It might not be as valuable to other off but to get to open. That door is really fun. Also I look really really good in a Rodrick. Voicing Chaz is Damian. O.`Hare well the thing is I played. Constantine actually in the Justice League action Series so I think it was. It was an idea of the producers and the writers to do but a cross pollination than it would be quite sort of only if I came over and played his friend in this Unwritten the script. It's there's a wonderful relationship between the two of them basically so they haven't seen each other in twenty years. Because of this terrible incident that happened in new Newcastle which no one talks about but we that gets revealed throughout the movie on you can actually say where they haven't spoken to each other but chas is daughter is in trouble. She's in a coma at the start of the move in given too much away And he goes to John. He smells dark. Magic is involved and so he goes to John and sin for help and that's sort of last resort but there's a great relationship there. It's like when you have a friend that you haven't seen in years you know and you sit down and it's like you saw them just the day before there's instant connection again but there's a nice. There's a wonderful same. When they first made on the setting an diner or something I think it is and they're just speaking to each other on because it's a ninety minute movie. We actually played it. If it's like a live action sorta thing he can sort of take your time with it on and take the press in it and because you're given that scope in the ninety minutes because in the twelve minutes sort of you know J. J. l. a. The Justice League. That's more of a lighter touch. You know there's a certain be kept up this place like a movie but there's a relationship between the and Charles There's a lot of sort of Baden Eisenbach. Fourth and Charles. Constantine lovingly refers to China's a north head most of the Times which is a wonderful English term of endearment. Think you call the packer head over here. So but it said with love on finding the right accent of her play. Constantine the jail a with a sort of like copy sort of thing even though he's he's only skies but a court mott's from well from wheels and he plays with car accident on a Cardiff has touches Liverpool on it. You know anyway But I played Him London basically and my head. He moved from dime to London when he was about. Eight or nine years of is well. It's like myself you know. I'm Australian. Obviously what about researching well to know what I think and then everything? Id do even if it's live action. It comes from the writing you know. Everything comes from the writing on the writing on this. I think is so good that everything is on the pace. You don't need to do a hell of a lot around it. You know the box story. Everything is there. So it's a moderate going in on trying to make us believable As possible I'm not screwing up. He was impressed. This was close to the comics. Apparently this is closer to the to the comics. You know because jam. Obviously you know. That's that is his source material that he's taking from And as I said it's there from the first moment they meet each other on page. This is the opening page when he goes into that was on us has been on the CW yet when he made some is is at the institution that the start was. Yeah so you can see relationship there. I mean it's it's light than at an it's loving and it's brotherly but yet there's a native between them you know so everything's immediately there on the page so said it's only it's only a moderate trying to play that and then luckily enough when I was doing it. Although it's great having sorta unsolvable and be in the room as actors together a lot of times that's just not possible because of different scheduling and stuff. You know but I would have mott's voice ear or he would have mom and he's in London and we can just play truthful as possible and then we had a great Voice director West least fantastic And he would just measure the temperature of the same the mixture. We're not one of us isn't coming into hot or both the same sort of paid so script on you know when you're working with other actors that are from to us fantastic asthma and it's just a gift on when the writings is good but haven't seen the whole thing myself yesterday for the First Time. I can't believe the stuff has got away Western. This like it's suit dark and there's things that I actually had the rewind the few times last night really gonNA show this. These things are coming from which office? Yeah being oriented for a reason. It's a half so being at it is dark What is relatable to the audience? Chaz for the audience is the actual audience. You know he's the every month even though He grew up with Constantine on his seen. This magic Iran when he walks into these situations when he's confronted by these days and the sort of pig like creatures to him that his first time there's revelations needs very much our way into the story you know of course with his wife and daughter. There's the he brings the sort of human element to it as well and the emotional under his relationship with Constantinos. Tina's well because it's growing sorta reality and old friends. I think that's when it gets is fantastic. All these dolls Damon start worrying about the place. Squelching People's heads and everything. It's actually rooted in such a nice and grind the police and reality that you can go as far as you want without you know. He likes the animation media on And for this I have such respect for this medium and for the for the artwork and everything that I'm not actually watching myself listening to my own voice on it because a lot of the times. This is the first time I've seen the animation you know so I'm just stunned by what these guys have gone the whole son skip and the and the on that then the world if created you know just so glad to be part of it was the Because it is our rating was the dialogue. Could it be a little bit more colorful? It is very colorful exciting. Could be. That's true that's true. Yeah there's not too many. Golly Gosh is or Gordon or Gordon benefits in this. You know it's it's full. It's full-on on its agree show and it'll be it'll be worth a watch special. Thanks to Gary Mirror now in New York comic con.

"With that as much as you could get away with. Not skied away. Yes this is an R. rated feature. Initially we weren't told that we would get an R rating I could have played it with the script that could have been a PG thirteen easily. I told group. Let's go as far as we could go. And see if Warner Brothers is going to hold this back and I was waiting as we got to certain places like all right this way. They're gonNA come back at so and then ultimately I guess they weren't telling us they wanted an r rating. They were happy to get it and they took it so so we weren't told that point that we were in are rated Phil was it was an unsaid but I just assume all right I'm gonNA throw everything in the kitchen sink at this and see what happens. So they didn't. They didn't flinch much except for the sex. Then they said it was. Maybe two many comps gone something. Is this the Constantine story you wanted to tell this one because it's pretty much Arjun Storm? It's where he basically screwed up and that's why he became what he became. You know why he's insulin to itself light became a heavy smoker and shrink. It's because he has to live with the results all choice for what happened back in new Kassir so that was always considered his his basic origin. Story I mean before that he had he had a magic skills he was born with and he was learning skills to some and open up You know the voids. But he wasn't he wasn't as as advanced at it as when he opened this one up he was to copy about it and he brought on certain amount of hell to the world. You really shouldn't have been paying the consequences. So that's pretty much. What makes ultimate? Constantine is a throwback hero of sorts. Yeah that that is. It's the anti hero practically you know all over again. The Classic Anti Hero. Obviously a cocky bastard when he was younger and he was at that. You know him in Chad with do strange chassis strings. Things about Eventually as it costs to and he knows it you know as an adult. It's one he's been living with and that's why has his own troubles. But it's chaz coming back into the story after. Eighteen years reminds of that what happened. You have to make so and ultimately when you guys get to the end. He makes it right but he doesn't. It's Oh yeah it's not exactly all rosy but there are consequences to his actions that we are doing more adult you know true rattle to instead of just basic sex and violence court story. It's true and to the heart you know. Did it help that. The joker story that was done title Jones was done. I as an R. rated. So he didn't have that pressure to do it. It's like okay mic. Done it so we can do. I think we're living in the ether. That's great luckily they did it. I said we didn't get all the the stops talented. Rachel Kinsey Voices Angela. The the best part about working in animation in general and as a voice actor is the incredible freedom. It's that you can slay so much more than what you seem to be on the surface. It's whatever you can truthfully embody it's whatever you can build so I get to be incredibly lucky and I get to play wonder woman and I also get to play. The Demon of this city of Los Angeles and Mogi story has been out so I. I was absurdly ridiculously pregnant. Well working on this movie and is you don't usually get to play sex demon when you're pregnant but guess what an animation you do and it's it's really freeing and it's really rewarding to to walk into something going you know what. I'm the best person for this job and just doing it and not feeling like they're judging you for your haircut does Nice. Did you see her before you did? Which is going to look like. I did not get to see what Angela looks like before I record but when we came back A few months later to do agr to fill in a bunch of things. I did get to see her and I was like Oh. She's very sexy. Oh my that is quite the outfit. Because it's described in the script but then I saw and it was like. Yeah all right. There's a lot of action going on there. She enjoys working in both the light and dark. The funny thing is I know this is just avoiding it but like the funding is to not have to pay to get to play both sides of that coin like especially because working Working as wonder woman for Justice League action we are specifically doing a show for younger crowd. That's a little bit lighthearted that gets right into the action. We don't really have any sex and violence in that world and so getting to come over with the people that I come to know so well over there and work with them again on something completely opposite where there is nothing. That's too dark there is nothing. That's too sexy. There is nothing. That's too violent that that there's a truth to that too And getting to do both of those feels like getting to tell a whole story in a way but also have a baby girl so if I had to choose I gotta go kid appropriate for a couple of years right like she can't watch this for like eighteen years. You know how. How do you play someone? You haven't seen yeah. That's a great question because we know very often animation. We know so little going in. You only have. What's on the page and you don't have you don't have the world you don't have the circumstances you don't have the look And the the thing about it. Is You get to fill all that in with your imagination? So what's exciting is whatever you might think of what you hear when I speak might've been completely different than what I was thinking of. But my imagination fleshed out that world for me and the artists came in and they filled out the world. And then you get to see those two things married together so we all get to have the experience. That's the richest for each of us and for me that starts with getting to be uncensored beginning and I get to just keep expanding on what that imagination might be And every once in a while I see the art deco thinking not what? I've not what I imagined. But Okay it works and sometimes exactly. That's precisely what I what I was imagining. It's exciting to get to to fill those gaps contrast between working in an ensemble voice cast or by yourself animation. The trick with animation. And I I was very lucky because my very first cartoon on Justice League action we had most of us in the room of the time so I got super lucky that I got to learn a lot about making cartoons with other actors in the room when it comes to this where I had to do essentially all of my reporting by myself I mean the Nice thing is Matt has such a history now is constantine I can. I can imagine what choices he might make But again it comes down to that deep rich imagination and the fun part is in the end. I get to perform with whomever I choose. Because I get to create that person in my head I get to create what I'm responding to. And then the other person also does that an amazing editors put it together and as far as anyone knows we were all in this world together at the same time but in a way I kinda got to play. Constantine too because we got to do this team together but it was all happening in my head. Did you find her voice? Did you go in without any kind of preconceived idea? Funding is West. We're talking Going into this and he said you know all of those sounds that we can't use on wonder women you can use all of them here I tend to have kind of a deeper warmer voice and a lot of times with my superheroes in super soldiers and those kind of things. I can't let it land in this place. But with Angela she can be there and and have that warmth and have that kind of growl the whole time and I was like this is just. It's fun.

"Kinda grab the essence of the character and stay true to that whatever the media may be. I think there's really a jump with what you're talking about when you go to live action just with comics in general you know you can get away with things in common and even in animation when you've got buildings falling and cars flying through the air and and pedestrians getting crushed. You can get away with that because the anime even the animation. There's there's a step back from reality as soon as you have real actors and real people remember years ago. I was the second Spiderman movie came out and Peter and Mary Jane around this restaurant and Doctor Octopus hurls his car through the window and I know there's a bunch of people sitting back there and I know they just got crushed to death you know and you don't think about that in Congress and when you go to live action it all becomes much more real and you have to be. I think there are three. You have to really be careful. Because it could become distasteful he speculates. Constantine faces daily has ever been store over the years where he was finally pushed so far that he just gave it up. They must have been at some point. I if you know if you take a step back and you think about what this guy is doing and always doing. There's gotTa be a point when you face that much darkness that consistently where you're going to be broken you know and have to walk away in a weird way. I think of like professions like doctors or nurses or People. That work with hospice. Where you're dealing with real illness and death on a daily basis at a certain point you overload and you have to walk away and he sort of like a doctor of the occult in a way I would think at some point. That'd be a great story though really to push them push him to that point and this story t you'll see by the and takes them to an emotional point that I don't think he's ever been to before and it's it's not a fun place for him. Is he looking for some form of redemption. I don't know if I believe that. And and he's always in the end fighting on the side of the light for whatever reason he twisted around and explains it and still tries to be the biggest bastard on the block. Whatever it is he makes a choice time and again to be to work on the side of the light so that says something about what's lying underneath that character. You know weirdly on a big bills fan so when I was reading this this thinking Matt Ryan. I kept thinking about John Lennon. Both Liverpool both really hard edged tough. It could be really nasty. And underneath that total idealists you know and and with real soft and I thought about that with constantly because there serious. He's got a real real heart. Heart is but he would not be doing what he's doing if there was something else going with him and in this story of particular. It's so much about that relationship with. Chas. Who's you know this? One person in his life that he really trusts and loves that he's got to go to the Mat for he will go into matinee. There's a fun for you know. And that's why I like this particular story because In the graphic novels graphic novel It's called all his engines seven use as a template but emotionally. It didn't go to those places that we get to go to the story and that was important to me and said by the worked on it was to really drill deep into his character into his heart and the soul is mine and open them up a little. Bit More and see those other layers. Is He a fun character to any character that it has kind of internal tension where there's you know there one thing but there another and there's constant tension between the two mix it really really interesting was After doing Justice League dark the did seem a natural way to go to have constantly Jones because he was front and Center and Justice League right. But you know Having written you know team books are a different thing and teams stories and he was front and center. But it was still I guess. Justice League dark still had more of the feel of a big fund. Dc adventure in that way and this one we got to be really true to the comics and the Constantina from the comics and really go deep and really go dark in a way that you just dark. Didn't which was you know with great for what on its own? But this is a whole different tone in a whole different flavor. The CHAZ Constantine relationship is to keyed has felt the the John Chaz friendship and their tensions or are the the emotional bedrock of the whole story. You know In the graphic novel it was chances granddaughter and I thought it would have more emotional immediacy if it if it was Chaz daughter and also that made them a little bit younger as well because then if Chesa grandfather then that means John's old enough to be a grandfather to so their their emotional bond is what kicks story off and again without giving anything away when you get to the end of the story and what happens at the end. It's all about the two of them. It's all about the two of them and and you know you have the pyrotechnics and the magic and the bolts explosions. But if you don't have a real great emotion story at the poor you don't have any. There's more Constantine city of Demons sci-fi talk so stick around Rooker signed. Talk enjoy yourselves. Producing IS BUTCH. Lukic talks about to genesis of the project. We got him script. We were told from that point on before you even start anything. Break it down to five minute episodes With that it was finding in between the episodes. How can we break it up? So we have slightly at Clifford for the next one. And whatever didn't work we pulled out and use. That's what's in the thirty twenty five minute material. We have now in the blue but it's important stuff it was you know it isn't just actually enhances the characters the story. It's just for five minutes stuff. Could we live without it if we were able to make these Ten episodes vitamins. And I think most of it works just wanted to might not. This is a character the just going. I think it's DC and water brought us together. They realized well they actually do have a character regardless of that. Tv show not going. Another season obviously has a lot of fans so for them to just leave it alone. There and you know would wouldn't have worked so I think they weren't GonNa do a second season. This was their other option. At least keep it going somehow as a standalone if we can do successfully animation. Then that's a win situation for them and see the way. I'm hoping they do live action season again. You know it'd be great. I hope they do both if this does well. They might think about it again. So we'll see. He has a long relationship with his character. You know I've read him since swamp he was in swamp. Swamping when Alamo Roden and you got the characterized away can't help and he's he's lovable re regardless of being miserable. Sod is great you know. And he's guided of seed. See at the end of the bar wants a while. Obviously there's something going on there and you WanNa get with fight. But he's got a certain charm about it know. I know the smoking thing. It's all rotten now. We don't know about the smoke. I gave up yours ago though. This is a really neat about this. Dc animation's going into they did it with justice league dirt just the Derek. Now this grant entering the horror realm a little panetta. And that's a place that you guys are. Don't go into. Yeah and this was my chance. Doug Murphy might director. We both set to ourselves. Look W we're going to do this. We're GONNA make a horror film. I'm not looking at it as like some kind of Harry Potter for about the something. We're doing straight horror. Which means blood. Or you know what dismemberment all other kinds of crap so I had sweet? I wasn't digging. A supernatural is much. That's in that's already built in because of what the you know what he does but I feel it's true that like at eighty nine hundred. Fill and go.

"High welcomed. The sci-fi to Constantine city of Demons is an animated movie once again with Matt Ryan is a famous comic demon. Hunter Your Comic Con. I have audio from the roundings. Now Matt Ryan Wasn't there. He was actually shooting legends tomorrow which he is now. A regular is constantly but from the tables of Justice League Dark. He comments on plane constantly. I mean look I like I love the car to so much and I understood that I felt that that was so there is so much more to explore with had but with an assault with a character like this know. I just feel lucky enough to have got to play to play him. You know who have goes on to play him you know. We'll be very lucky to show. I don't think you can kind of take ownership of such a character like that. You know what I mean. It's like it's like Batman you caught in that way so many different people play him but I certainly like kind of throughout my journey with him. Fallen in love with the love and hate relationship as you can imagine kind of Yeah and just kind of get to play him again and put on the kind of you know the metaphorical trenchcoat where those boost but I was thinking about taking in a trench coat with me too. Wet under the. Yeah no great to just exploded got mine and I feel lucky and blessed to kind of to to you know had a chance to to play running. I is character designer. Par Excellence Phil Barrage about the look for. Constantine for this animated feature dot characters so well described from the get-go with His original look you know and it's not something that needs to be updated. Its archetype or like you know sort of charming roguish disheveled rogue character. Some things you know you don't if it ain't broke kind of thing so he he's always been he's one of those characters were it's it's almost a one from what is on a comic book page Which is why. I think you know with Matt Ryan's portrayal in the live action stuff. I mean they nailed it And so I didn't feel like I needed to take any liberties or any particular creative license. I you know I've used part of. My job is taking the work of other creators other artists and interpreting it or updating it for You know different context or different narrative. And that's fun and I enjoy that but I also I don't do it just for the sake of doing it. Always do it with a purpose and with this characters. There's no need here. He is on the visual style for. Constantine just a matter of the guys that did the TV show the guy that didn't live action. They looked at all the source material that I would look at for a and they felt imagine they felt the same way. Like this totally is some stuff in comics is. There's a there's a range some stuff doesn't work for live action right and you know you have to. You have to take liberties to put it into a new medium but this is a duty and a trench coat. You know what I mean. So it's like you don't have to change that you know if you were if you were to set him in a different time period or something like that but it's kind of a classic like you know look so does it. It's something that's you know. Been seemed contemporary. Whether it's from now or thirty years ago when the character was created. And you could there's such a new ish aspect to it it could even be from fifty years before that Or in the future like bladerunner but I guess later on the original bladerunner it'll be like now or whatever anyway But Yeah it's it's you know I didn't so I don't try to do a one-to-one unless I have to like A. Let's say an actor right like I didn't look like I had matt set photos but I wasn't trying to draw his face per se. You know what I mean and In in fact when we introduce the character in Justice League dark it wasn't necessarily part of that. Cw Universe So then but then it was just he was. He was our voice talent and he was doing so we it just made total sense to keep it consistent. Yes Fun man. It's fun to draw that character and characters like that because I do a lot of Capes entites and I think it's fun to do characters that are more grounded in their surface presentation but then we can explore the fantastic because the world lends itself to that and when we originally did Justice League dark I drew him with a Cigarette. Now and then but then because it was initially. Pg thirteen they made us take the cigarette And get rid of any kind of like smoking related component but then we finally got the R. Rating. He comments on working on those monster stylistically. I don't think they're necessarily needs to be pushed. Because he's a character that needs to look like a real person where you push in the monsters demons the fantastic components and then if you contrast that and balance it against like grounded believable normal then you have a dynamic range if everything is pushed like if the look of is pushed then you got nowhere to go with the monsters you know what I mean. You got nowhere to go with the supernatural. So you need the anchor for the audience to like frame in a row. The stakes are higher. And you believe that you know what I mean. So I don't feel I feel like the style that I was doing for the other stuff. It has a range like I can push fantastic characters and keep the normal the like regular human types albeit magical. But you know there's nothing about his. Our appearance should say that now. Is there a reference going for these monsters? It's absolutely more fun working on the monsters. Because there's there's less restrictions but it requires more disciplined to do stuff. That's believable like. I always tell young artists. Anybody can draw a robot or an injury but if you can make a bus driver interesting then you're really good you know what I mean And so to me. It's like if I didn't have the discipline or if I didn't realize like that that's how I earned my monster points. You know what I'm saying like I gotTa Make John Real. I gotTa Make Clark Kent Real. I gotTa make all these like sort of the grounded. Aspect of the world has to be believable and and it has to be compelling you know great artists can take something incredibly mundane and and it'll be the most amazing thing you've ever seen like you know you think about like. I LIKE ALEX. Toth or job you some Could draw dude sitting in a chair. Smoking a cigarette. And it's the best thing that you've ever seen anybody can draw like the fantastic stuff. So how far could you push them? Irs Sky's the limit. Yeah you can do anything you know. Tentacles is you know Demonic relations push. It's part of the reason why villains are more fun to work on in some ways than heroes it but it's fun isn't the right word. It's just requires more disciplined to do the other thing which is always like the the it causes you to work harder but if you got you know villains can be so many varied silhouettes and you know what I mean there. There's no limit to your imagination about because they can be anything. There's no wrong way. I'm trying to remember back when we first created the model back. It's been a while but it was just about trying to create the most nightmarish. You know ghastly you. Sort of look like almost love. Crafty in you know adding elements like I think we. We just had crazy components that we We almost created a little vocabulary like there was a dude with like a monster with an open mouth and he had like a brain inside the mouth. You know what I mean. It was weird. We're just trying to go weird with it. You know and and not necessarily always like something that no one seemed before but if you just go for some of the more darker components of what might be in your subconscious. You're gonNA find something but yeah. There wasn't a specific direction unless it was based on a specific cultural reference. Like we have like you know certain ghosts or entities that are from certain specific cultures and then in those cases. Then you look at that image credit your I. I recently saw Superman shoop. Yeah and you're doomed. Jay was thank you. Thanks so much. That was one. I'd say one of the top five told him yeah. I came together Nice. That Third Act was bananas. Oh my God yeah. The fight was out of control. Wow Yeah.

Martian manhunter rate superman equal enough on this podcast so oh really deep emotional like they don't really ever flesh out Marsha hundred any of his books you just know the basic origin but this one is like who he he is a person how his time on earth has affected him in shot in his mind and they gave him a really great supporting cast.

Kevin is a scholar of the classics. Oh Oh my God is he. He is An AW classics tie into the served. Shit the Constantine does is just in the classics. They're all not real.
