Keanu Reeves has told fans he is still "trying" to make Constantine 2 happen.

Appearing at SXSW Film Festival to premiere John Wick: Chapter 4, Reeves sat down for an audience Q&A where he answered questions about the film and his career.

One fan from the audience shouted "Bring back Constantine," to which Reeves answered "I'm trying, man."

It was earlier reported that a sequel to 2005's Constantine was on hold after Reeves said: “DC world [is] re-evaluating whether or not they want to do a Constantine with me in the movie. So fingers crossed!”

In 2022, Deadline reported that Reeves was going to return to the role with Francis Lawrence also returning as director but this was before there was a corporate change at Warner Bros and DC that saw James Gunn and Peter Safran placed in charge of DC Studios.

Reeves has expressed enthusiasm for playing Constantine again: "I love playing Constantine. John Constantine. I've played a lot of Johns. How many Johns have I played? I don't even know. I think it's over ten.

"But anyway, I'd love to have the chance to play Constantine again."

Constantine was released in 2005 with Reeves as the titular exorcist who can travel between heaven and hell. While the film was a financial success, it received fairly poor reviews but in recent years has become something of a cult favourite.

Constantine also starred Rachel Weisz, Shia LaBeouf and Tilda Swinton.
