Lucifer Boss On The Story Behind Lucifer And Constantine’s Maze Connection In Crisis On Infinite Earths

Crisis on Infinite Earths gave fans of Netflix’s Lucifer a crossover that they’ve been dying to see: John Constantine (Matt Ryan) and Lucifer Morningstar (Tom Ellis) sharing the screen. With all the belligerent sexual tension of former one night stands/exes that we could have hoped for, thank you.

Talking with Entertainment Weekly, co-showrunner of Lucifer as well as onset handler of Lucifer’s character in Crisis Joe Henderson talked a little more about the cameo that fans are still talking about. One question that fans have is just what went down between Lucifer, Constantine, and Maze (Lesley-Ann Brandt)?

“I have thoughts,” was all he could say. Although, he did have one joke up his sleeve.

“I have theories [about Lucifer and Constantine’s past relationship] and we should explore it in the spin-off.”

There is currently no spin-off in the works. Perhaps, maybe, bringing John on for a little cameo in Lucifer‘s final season?

Henderson had nothing but praise for the cast and crew of Crisis on Infinite Earths and the Arrowverse.

“By the way, credit where credit is due: That scene, we only added two things to it. One, I pitched the flirt joke, which Tom surprised the actor who plays Diggle with. I wish we’d been covering his side because you got a great reaction from him. And then the Constantine, Constantyne [bit], that was Tom having heard about the debate from one of our writers. Other than that, that was all them [on The Flash]. And I thought they did such a wonderful job of capturing the voice, knowing how to write Lucifer, because Lauren Certo, [who] watches the show [and] is a fan of it, wrote our Lucifer, which was lovely.”

Crisis on Infinite Earths returns with “Part Four” and “Part Five” on Tuesday, January 14 at 8/7c on the CW. Lucifer is expected to air the first part of its final season sometime in 2020 on Netflix.
