New ‘Constantine’ Animated Short Anchors Latest ‘DC Showcase’ Collection

Warner Bros. Home Entertainment will release DC Showcase — Constantine: The House of Mystery on Blu-ray Disc and 4K Ultra HD digital download May 3.

The ‘R’-rated collection of animated short films features stories based on DC Comics’ library of characters.

Matt Ryan reprises his live-action and animated role as the Hellblazer himself in Constantine: The House of Mystery. In the all-new short, John Constantine wakes up in the eerie House of Mystery with no recollection of how he got there. Camilla Luddington and Ray Chase reprise their roles from Justice League Dark: Apokolips War as Zatanna and Jason Blood/Etrigan, respectively, while Robin Atkin Downes and Damian O’Hare reprise their roles from Constantine: City of Demons as Negral and Chas, respectively. In addition, Grey Griffin and Lou Diamond Phillips join the cast of the short, which is directed by Matt Peters (Injustice) from a script by Ernie Altbacker (Batman: Hush).

The collection will also include the shorts Kamandi: The Last Boy on Earth!, The Losers and Blue Beetle, which were previously released as companions to recent DC Universe animated movies.

Also included as an extra is the featurette “DC Showcase: One Story at a Time,” a look at the history of the animated shorts with interviews from producer Rick Morales and directors Matt Peters and Milo Neuman as they explore the featured heroes and villains, the comics that inspired them, and these adventures’ place in the bigger picture of the DC animated universe.
