why does he wear a fitted one in the show? I was kind of hopping for him to wear something a little longer and baggier. Something like the one he wore during the time he went into hell to get Sheryl (his sister) back. "where the dead men go"

 

What about you guys?

i woul have liked that too. i also would have liked if the coat would've looked more used, but since they say we are before issue 1 in the life of jc it is understandable.

also i think they gave him a shorter one, to not look too much alike to castiel (whom is modelled after john), which will be a great challenge for them anyway, to not look to much like a supernatural ripoff to non-hb-readers.

Also baggier ones look kind of shitty in real life. Some stuff is easier to pull off in ink.

 

But yeah, I imagine the Castiel thing was definitely a major factor.

Was Castiel a definite deliberate nod to Constantine?

If so then it strikes me as tongue in cheek.

If not then it's just iggerant.

 

I don't even know what Castiel is.

It used to be a soap.

What a douchey thing to tweet, eh?

I'd say it's just a small joke.

Eric Kripke did say that Castiel was deliberately based off of Constantine and he also mentioned that he wanted John to be in the SPN show as his own character, but that was said no to. So He decided the next best thing; make up a character (an angel just for the hell of it) and as he quoted "If I can't have John Constantine, then I'll at least dress up an angel like him."

 

Castiel's an angel, then he became an arcangel, then god, then crazy, then a lackey angel, then human, and now half angel.

Just seemed pissy but it's easy to misinterpret a tweet especially when you don't know the tweeter.

 

I don't know owt about Supernatural, watched a couple, not my thing.

 

(Also, I use Castile soap on Micro Pooka, as it's gentle. And that's all I know, too.)

I thought you were Micro Pooka, Pooka?

As opposed to Pico Pooka?

 

:sherlock:

;-)

 

I was going to put Mini Pooka, but thought someone would say that was me- guess no small is too small :-)

The length does have a bit of Phillips and Murphy circa Jason Aaron's 2 parter to a certain extent. May be they'll get a longer one somewhere down the road

Speaking of Cas, even he's sporting a shorter trenchcoat these days sans tie

Now if they could just dress him up with a black coat next....

Or whenever AbbyShot ever start selling replicas.

 

Since we're on the subject of coat, is it a Burberry? I found a Burberry that closely resembles it

Cannot find the manly men model pretty much, since most of these models are skinny

i typically find models unattractive. flaws make the face unique, otherwise everyone looks the same and no one is pretty. it's easy for me to say this having a face with many flaws.
