Save Constantine Campaign Gains Momentum, Seeks to Go Mainstream

Constantine fans, it appears, are not ready to give up. In fact, they appear to have only begun their fight.

After a resurgence in interest following lead character John Constantine’s appearance on the CW’s hit Arrow series, Change.org launched a petition to bring the character back for a second chance. A previous attempt to do so on the same platform failed, but the latest effort has already exceeded the response of the first. As of the publication of this story, the current petition claimed 38,295 supporters, over 300% more than the last try, which earned just over 11,000 signatures.

In the latest update, the organizers of the effort called upon supporters to reach out to mainstream Hollywood outlets like Variety to raise awareness and hopefully drive an industry response.

“First of all, great job everyone! This petition started less than a week ago and we have already surpassed the number of singers for the original Save Constantine petition. However, if we want to succeed we need to grow bigger. This means posting this on social media, spreading it on places like Twitter, Facebook, Tumblr, etc. Also, as you may or not be aware of, this petition has received press coverage from popular outlets like Comic Book Resources and comicbook.com. This is great momentum and we need to keep it going. Our next target is Variety magazine, they’re a huge news outlet and will help us greatly in boosting the number of signatures.”

We encourage you all to contact joseph.meehan@variety.com asking them to run an article about this petition.

Thank you all and never stop fighting

If you haven’t signed the petition yet, you can do so HERE.
