True, it could definitely have worked, but I think Constantine benefited from being on the gritter side and CW doesn't tend to do that well (being largely YA targeted).Id like to see the CW give a live action Constantine series a second chance . I think thwart has the live live action series been on the CW, it would still be on the air.
Even if on another network, from what I've seen, the pure DC characters don't translate well to live action at all (I say pure because Hellblazer was under their Vertigo branding which has also spun off Lucifer and Preacher). Even Nolan's Batman trilogy wasn't great (I did really like the first one and the second was good, but don't get me started on the plot holed mess of number three).
