more constantinian comic con goodness
From San Diego.com:
Don't expect Keanu Reeves to play another reluctant hero with special powers who's called on to save the world in his upcoming supernatural action flick Constantine.
Scratch that. That's exactly what to expect, but Reeves says he found the hard-boiled magician John Constantine an appealing character despite any resemblance to his role as the savior of the Matrix trilogy.
"The character itself is so beautiful," Reeves said Friday during a panel discussion of the Warner Bros. film at Comic-Con International. "It's a guy who's dealing with issues of Heaven and Hell and how the world works. He's not happy about how the world works -- and I can relate."

Also, Empire Online reports on yesterday's appearance:
"At the heart of it all, though, was Reeves, whose gritty, SFW turn as the nihilistic Constantine (rapidly encroaching lung cancer and all, a storyline taken from Garth Ennis run on Hellblazer) had the geeks eating out of the palm of his hand.
And, as if to reciprocate, the notoriously private and often prickly Reeves was personable and fun during the presentation (during which he was asked 90% of the questions), flashing a constantly bemused smile as his every word was greeted with shrieks and shouts.
At one point he even leapt down from the stage to receive a present from an endearingly eager fan, who declared that 'You are DA BOMB!' Luckily, it turned out to be an actual present and not a thinly veiled bomb threat.
Anything where there's a great enthusiasm and where there s a coming together to share what you think is cool, I think it s awesome, said Reeves of the Comic-Con experience, before expounding further on the appeal of Constantine.
I ditched the accent, he laughed. But I really loved the guy. I loved his anger. I loved his wry sense of humour about the awfulness of the world and what that's turned him into. He's like a warrior in this world of shit, and he's trying to deal with it. "

SuperHeroHype has a look at a really ugly poster.
Ooooh, one more (via keanuweb). Cinescape.com has a nice long SPOILERY rundown of the footage shown. I'm not going to read it, but if you want to, go HERE.

WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO! I can't wait, damnit. I cannot wait to see this. I want the nihilism. I want the bitterness. I want...well...we all want the same thing, don't we, ladies?
What is SFW?
I am glad Keanu did so well. Feel a little sorry for the rest of the panelists though.
Safe For Work?
Silly Fucking Weasel?
Sexy Fucker, Whoa?
I have no idea.
Can't you just hear all the little geeks snickering when he said "shit"?
I think it might mean "So Fuckin'What" but that's just a guess.
I think I like that last one better, Krix. Whoa indeed.
"so [the] fuck what" Constantine fits.
I like the Sexy Fucker Whoa better though. I'll go with that one.

You should keep the poster Wanda, then you can put one up and keep the other in mint condition. I just got done bitching how ugly it is so it wouldn't be right for me to have it.
in the *here she goes again* category
...(during which he was asked 90% of the questions), flashing a constantly bemused smile as his every word was greeted with shrieks and shouts.

I LOVE YOU, KEANU!!!!!! can ya hear me now!omg
little mention has been made of the opening comments prior to the panel coming on...
a comic-con house representative said nicely but firmly ...'we know many of you have personal feelings about our panel... so don't ask for anything like a k i s s, or a p r o m d a t e or a b a b y!!" !!!!

. . . emmm....errr.....exactly how many cups of coffee have you had today...... :-)
She got a double dose of Reeves this week, so I don't expect she'll come down for days.
Let's reel it in a little bit though, ok w.?
*crez waves up to Wanda who is not on planet earth anymore*
*crez learned a new english word today: 'prickley'. And she loves it. She doesn‘t think it‘s a word she would ever use for Keanu (ok, sometimes for his look in most of his fan-pix) but she thinks for a hornet it‘s a nice description.
I should have gone I should have gone I wish I did I wish I did I wish I coulda!
"But it was Reeves that the crowd roared for. One woman who declared herself a 14-year fan of his got permission to approach the heavily-guarded stage to give him an early birthday present."
"And, as if to reciprocate, the notoriously private and often prickly Reeves was personable and fun during the presentation (during which he was asked 90% of the questions), flashing a constantly bemused smile as his every word was greeted with shrieks and shouts. "
*Topples over dead*
I am also looking forward to this film -- I have never seen Keanu Reeves in the theater. It may sound silly to you all but it constantly amazes me how beautiful he is -- silly...
It's not silly! It amazes me all the time too! Wow you've never seen him in theatres? Well, then again, I think my first Keanu-in-theatres-movie was just SGG. Maybe one other one.
