Washington: Actor Matt Ryan has hinted that upcoming TV series 'Constantine' will cast a spotlight on an atypical superhero.

NBC's adaptation of DC Comics' 'Hellblazer' stars Ryan, 33, as a dark magician who becomes humanity's last hope against conspiring dark forces, reportedly.

Ryan said that John Constantine is unlike fellow DC Comics heroes Superman, Wonder Woman and the Green Arrow.

"He's not a superhero with a cape, someone with a special power. He's just a working-class guy who uses cunning, wit and street charm to get what he wants," the actor said.

"His mission is to save humanity from the evil of the world and the good forces. He doesn't like either side interfering in humanity."

'Constantine' will also feature DC Comics favourites Papa Midnite (Michael James Shaw), The Spectre (Emmett Scanlan) and Nergal (Miles Anderson).
