Add Shankar's latest project just brought in a surprising WWE Superstar, and the debut makes quite the impression. Earlier today Netflix released the first teaser trailer for Shankar's latest project Captain Laserhawk: A Blood Dragon Remix, which is clearly inspired by Ubisoft's Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon. The trailer gave us a look at a host of characters, but it was hard to not notice one particular character who sported an uncanny resemblance to WWE's Cody Rhodes. The character even has Rhodes' trademark neck tattoo, but the character meets an unfortunate and rather explosive end. You can find Rhodes' Blood Dragon debut in the video below.

In the trailer we see the Warden of Supermaxx talking to several characters, including Rhodes, who points out that there's a frog in the group (which is Bullfrog). The Warden says that she's brought them all together because of their special abilities, but Rhodes doesn't wait to hear the rest of the pitch. He charges forward but before he can make contact his head starts to deform, and all of the sudden it explodes due to the bomb that was implanted.

Rhodes saw the trailer and thanked Shankar for bringing him into this universe. On Twitter Rhodes wrote, "😂 I went boom Thanks @adishankarbrand for thinking of me and sliding me into your world, cheers to the next time!" You can check out the post above for the trailer, and you can find the official description for Captain Laserhawk: A Blood Dragon Remix below.

"Captain Laserhawk: A Blood Dragon Remix is an homage to early '90s pop culture, replete with a ton of easter eggs and several "remixed" characters from different Ubisoft games. Captain Laserhawk: A Blood Dragon Remix is a new Netflix original animated series inspired by Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon, and its first teaser debuted during Ubisoft Forward. 

Premiering this fall, the series is set in an alternative 1992 in the country formerly known as the USA. Now called Eden, it is a technocracy ruled by propaganda and corruption. Super-soldier Dolph Laserhawk has just been betrayed by the love of his life and locked up in Eden's top security prison Supermaxx. He must now lead a team of rebel outcasts on risky undercover missions in order to survive.

Adi Shankar (Castlevania, Devil May Cry) is Captain Laserhawk: A Blood Dragon Remix's creator and executive producer; Helene Juguet, Hugo Revon, and Gerard Guillemot are producing for Ubisoft Film & Television; and Bobbypills is the animation studio, with Mehdi Leffad serving as director of the show and 'Balak' as the studio's creative director. Shankar also voices Red from the Niji Six in the show, inspired by Rainbow Six Siege, while 'Balak' lends his voice as the sweet but deadly Assassin, Bullfrog, inspired by Assassin's Creed. Dolph Laserhawk is voiced by Nathaniel Curtis (Witcher: Blood Origin, It's A Sin), Mark Ebulue voices Marcus Holloway (Watch Dogs 2), and Boris Hiestand (Assassin's Creed Valhalla) voices Alex."

Captain Laserhawk: A Blood Dragon Remix hits Netflix on October 19th.
