Claiming John's soulEdit
With Constantine taking his own life as a teenager his soul is condemned to an eternity in hell. After being resurrected Johns devoted his life to securing his entry into heaven. It is said that Constantine is the one soul Lucifer would come to personally collect.
- Lucifer's role in Constantine is somewhat similar to The First of the Fallen's role in the comic books, thus leading to the speculation that Lucifer is the film's equivalent of that character.
- They're similiar due to the fact that they were both tricked into giving John his soul back.
- Lucifer's first appearance has him come down, from above, this has caused confusion, but this is a representation of Lucifer's status as an Archangel.
- Biblically, Lucifer was the most beautiful of angels, known for his alignment with light. He became arrogant and conceited by his high position, eventually becoming an embodiment of all evil. He, along with one-third of the angelic host, rebelled against God, becoming the demons, though they were defeated and banished from Heaven and God's presence.
- He has been called the devil, serpent, dragon and other beastly names throughout history due to his nature. He also has titles such as accuser, trickster, tempter, and liar. His treatment by God and his own evil caused him to hate all creation, especially the humans, and sought to ruin it in God's eyes out of spite and hatred. He achieves this most prominently through the sinful nature of mankind.
- However, God's sacrifice as Jesus allowed humanity to be absolved of sins and be freed from the devils grasp and from the eternal damnation due to all sinners. Those who believe in this sacrifice become pardoned of all sins throughout their past, present and future.
- Peter Stormare was critically acclaimed for his portrayal as Lucifer. As a result, it is likely that he will appear in the planned sequel, Constantine 2.
