Doctor Fate’s helmet appears in Constantine

DR. Fate

A new trailer for Constantine has a emerged and for a split second you see a very familiar helmet. (That is if you’re familiar with the source material.) The helmet shows up at the 0:47 mark of the trailer. If you don’t know whose helmet that is, then let me tell you.

That helmet is one of DC’s oldest comic character, Doctor Fate. Doctor Fate is a hero who control magic for the Lord of Order. Together with the Amulet of Anubis, Cloak of Destiny, and the Helmet of Fate, Doctor Fate fights the battle against chaos. There have been many people wanting to take up the mantle of Doctor Fate.

So we know that Doctor Fate will be in play in the show in some way or another. But the specifics, I don’t know. Also, this is not the first time Doctor Fate has appeared on TV; the character appeared in Smallville.

NBC also released its official description of the show:

Based on the wildly popular comic book series “Hellblazer” from DC Comics, seasoned demon hunter and master of the occult John Constantine (Matt Ryan, “Criminal Minds”) specializes in giving hell… hell. Armed with a ferocious knowledge of the dark arts and his wickedly naughty wit, he fights the good fight — or at least he did. With his soul already damned to hell, he’s decided to leave his do-gooder life behind, but when demons target Liv (Lucy Griffiths, “True Blood”), the daughter of one of Constantine’s oldest friends, he’s reluctantly thrust back into the fray – and he’ll do whatever it takes to save her.

Before long, it’s revealed that Liv’s “second sight” — an ability to see the worlds behind our world and predict supernatural occurrences — is a threat to a mysterious new evil that’s rising in the shadows. Now it’s not just Liv who needs protection; the angels are starting to get worried too. So, together, Constantine and Liv must use her power and his skills to travel the country, find the demons that threaten our world and send them back where they belong. After that, who knows… maybe there’s hope for him and his soul after all.

The cast also includes Harold Perrineau and Charles Halford. Writer Daniel Cerone (“The Mentalist,” “Dexter”) serves as executive producer with David S. Goyer (“Man of Steel,” “The Dark Knight Rises”). “Constantine” is produced from Bonanza Productions in association with Warner Bros. Television. The show is based upon characters published by DC Entertainment.
