While Constantine sees Keanu Reeves as a demon hunter who has literally been to hell and back. John Constantine, the protagonist, knows that he would need to redeem himself in order to be granted heaven and thus joins with the police to help them.

As much as both the stories sound interesting, The Sandman was released recently while Constantine was released in 2005 followed up by a 2014 television series in hopes of reviving the fandom. Now, with HBO Max clearing up the WB shelves, it is now a matter of numbers and subscriptions about life or death.
