With Justice League Dark: Apokolips War now available to purchase on digital HD, fans have been reacting to the final chapter in the long-running DC Animated Movie Universe series of films. Among the more cheeky and surprising moments in the epic animated movie is the revelation that John Constantine was once romantically involved with a member of the Suicide Squad, a scene that has resulted in a lot of social media discussion.
In a clip from the film, Constantine and Raven come across an underground fight club where Constantine notes an ex-lover is present. When Raven assumes it’s Harley Quinn, Constantine quickly corrects her with the heavy implication that he was actually involved with King Shark. This nod has since been confirmed by the film’s screenwriter Mairghread Scott.
As an openly bisexual occult superhero, Constantine has had his prolific string of romantic interests across his decades-long career in comics, animation and live-action, with most of relationships ending horribly. In King Shark, Constantine may have found his most surprising love interest yet, awkward, post-breakup reunion and all.
Justice League Dark: Apokolips War stars Matt Ryan as John Constantine, Jerry O’Connell as Superman, Taissa Farmiga as Raven, Stuart Allan as Robin, Tony Todd as Darkseid, Jason O’Mara as Batman, Rosario Dawson as Wonder Woman, Shemar Moore as Cyborg, Christopher Gorham as the Flash, Rebecca Romijn as Lois Lane and Rainn Wilson as Lex Luthor. The film is available digitally now and on Blu-ray May 19.
