That’s right nerds, we live in a time when we are getting King Shark on a main stream television show who’s ratings rival that of the major networks. King Shark.
He’s part man, part shark.
It is utterly the most pulpy fantastic and ridiculous concept, and we’re getting it on The Flash.
Any bets that they keep his origin story as Nanaue, the son of the God of Sharks?
Not only that, but the promo for it is self-aware, making a direct reference to Jaws. Even the font for the series was changed to that of the Jaws poster.
The cast, the crew, the writers — everybody is having fun with this show and it’s evident just in this trailer, where we see Diggle (David Ramsey) and his wife Lyla Michaels (Audrey Marie Anderson) making an unannounced appearance at S.T.A.R. Labs to warn Barry Allen that King Shark is coming to Central City.
Also, how’s this for some fun trivia. The voice of King Shark in this episode is the same man that voices Solid Snake in the Metal Gear games AND is the writer of the first two X-Men films.
“ARROW’S” DIGGLE (DAVID RAMSEY) AND LILA (AUDREY MARIE ANDERSON) CROSS OVER TO “THE FLASH” TO TAKE ON KING SHARK – When King Shark escapes from an A.R.G.U.S. holding tank, Lila (guest star Audrey Marie Anderson) and Diggle (David Ramsey) travel to Central City to warn The Flash (Grant Gustin). King Shark shows up at the West house and attacks Joe (Jesse L. Martin), Iris (Candice Patton), Wally (Keiynan Lonsdale) and Barry.
