CW’s ‘The Flash’ Might Feature an Interesting Villain Paring

Speaking at San Diego Comic-Con, The Flash executive producer Todd Helbing revealed plans to potentially team up two of the show’s most visually memorable villains next season:

“We’ve been trying to do this for a long time and we just run out of money, to be honest. But we’re gonna really try to get King Shark and Grodd to do a little [together]. Probably the second half, if we have money.”

Although both villains are primarily associated with one hero, Grodd appeared on Legends of Tomorrow Season 3, while King Shark encountered two Arrow characters: Diggle and Lyla. The big question, of course, is what would bring these two monsters together besides being mutual foes of the Scarlet Speedster. Fans will have to have patience — and hope for the budget to cooperate — to find out.

Season 5 of The Flash premieres October 9.

From alternating Batman & Green Lantern as childhood Halloween costumes, to getting punched in my adolescent heart by Love & Rockets, to playing convention sidekick to the legendary Len Wein, the comics medium and characters feel like a part of my DNA.
