But, amongst all that epicness, there’s one hilarious small scene that fans can’t stop talking about. And it’s to do with Constantine’s surprising relationship history.

This sequence, as shared by Twitter user @Jo_Zatarra, has gone viral on social media, as the clip in question sees Raven (Taissa Farmiga) and John Constantine (Matt Ryan) approaching Task Force X’s King Shark and Harley Quinn. The occult detective reacts with horror when he sees who it is, commenting that it’s his ex. Raven quips that the mental image of Constantine and Harley together is “gross.” But it’s not Harley who’s Constantine’s ex.

See for yourself below:

Yup, apparently Constantine once had a romantic fling with… King Shark, of all people. We’ve always known that the Hellblazer was bisexual, something that’s accurately portrayed across all the mediums, but, uh, this still comes as a bit of a shock. And fans have had a field day with it on Twitter.

The guy knows what he likes. Gotta appreciate that.

Can someone add Guillermo Del Toro into this thread? This might get him back on board the shelved JLD movie.

OK, everyone stop tweeting. This hilarious Simpsons reference has won the internet today.

Does anyone else now want to see a Constantine and King Shark romance play out in the Arrowverse? The latter hasn’t been seen for a season or so on The Flash, after all. Bring him over to Legends of Tomorrow and watch the sparks fly on board the Waverider.

Justice League Dark: Apokolips War is available digitally now and arrives on 4K/Blu-Ray/DVD from May 19th.
