King Shark Was The First New Character James Gunn Added To ‘The Suicide Squad’ Roster

James Gunn has revealed that the first new character he added to the Suicide Squad roster was none other than Sylvester Stallone’s King Shark.

One of the standouts from The Suicide Squad‘s trailer was Sylvester Stallone’s King Shark, a 6-foot tall walking and talking shark capable of ripping humans into shreds within seconds. It’s quite an inventive character and feels completely on-brand for James Gunn’s zany style. It’s no surprise for fans of Gunn’s to find out that King Shark was one of the first brand new characters written into his soft-reboot of Suicide Squad.

James Gunn Teases Multiple Post-Credits Scenes In ‘The Suicide Squad’

In a recent interview with Den of Geek, James Gunn discussed how after he decided that Margot Robbie’s Harley Quinn and Viola Davis’ Amanda Waller would be in his take on The Suicide Squad, he’d need an animal to help round things out.

“I knew that I wanted to use an animal, and I knew that King Shark was a member of the Squad in the newer comics, I liked the concept of that character. So King Shark [was my first addition].”

What’s even more exciting is that Gunn knew that, right off the bat, he was writing King Shark with Sylvester Stallone in mind for the character’s voice. Gunn had previously worked with Sly in Guardians of the Galaxy: Vol.2. 

“Strangely, as I’ve become more able to get whatever actor I want for roles in movies, I started taking risks and writing for actors that I don’t know. So for instance, I wrote Bloodsport for Idris Elba, having never met him, but being a big fan of his work in other places. And I knew Sly, and I know him pretty well. So I wrote the role of King Shark with his voice in mind.”

‘The Suicide Squad’: Margot Robbie Talks Harley Quinn’s Chaos In The Film

You can check out the synopsis for the James Gunn film below.

Welcome to hell—a.k.a. Belle Reve, the prison with the highest mortality rate in the US of A. Where the worst Super-Villains are kept and where they will do anything to get out—even join the super-secret, super-shady Task Force X. Today’s do-or-die assignment? Assemble a collection of cons, including Bloodsport, Peacemaker, Captain Boomerang, Ratcatcher 2, Savant, King Shark, Blackguard, Javelin and everyone’s favorite psycho, Harley Quinn. Then arm them heavily and drop them (literally) on the remote, enemy-infused island of Corto Maltese. Trekking through a jungle teeming with militant adversaries and guerrilla forces at every turn, the Squad is on a search-and-destroy mission, with only Colonel Rick Flag on the ground to make them behave…and Amanda Waller’s government techies in their ears, tracking their every movement. And as always, one wrong move and they’re dead (whether at the hands of their opponents, a teammate, or Waller herself). If anyone’s laying down bets, the smart money is against them—all of them.

Written and directed by James Gunn, The Suicide Squad stars David Dastmalchian, John Cena, Jai Courtney, Joaquín Cosío, Nathan Fillion, Joel Kinnaman, Mayling Ng, Flula Borg, Sean Gunn, Juan Diego Botto, Storm Reid, Pete Davidson, Taika Waititi, Alice Braga, Steve Agee, Tinashe Kajese, Daniela Melchior, Peter Capaldi, Julio Ruiz, Jennifer Holland, Viola Davis, Idris Elba, Margot Robbie and Michael Rooker.

The Suicide Squad is currently scheduled to hit theaters and HBO Max on August 6, 2021. Stay tuned for all the latest news regarding the DC Films project and make sure to subscribe to our YouTube channel for more content!

‘Obi-Wan Kenobi’: Ewan McGregor Teases ‘Special Scene’ With Someone

Ewan McGregor has teased a “special scene” that he filmed with someone on May 4th for this upcoming Obi-Wan Kenobi series on Disney Plus.

Disney Plus is set to produce dozens of live-action television dramas in the next couple of years and perhaps the most anticipated of them all is Ewan McGregor’s Obi-Wan Kenobi series. Set 10 years after Revenge of the Sith, the limited series will see McGregor’s space wizard watching over Luke Skywalker on Tatooine. The series is also set to star Hayden Christensen as Anakin Skywalker/Darth Vader, so it wouldn’t be surprising in the least if both former best buds duked it out at one point. And whole Christensen is a very special actor to be acting alongside, there’s someone else on the set of the show that we don’t know of – at least for now.

Ewan McGregor’s ‘Obi-Wan Kenobi’: Set Photos Hint At Classic ‘Star Wars’ Location

In a recent interview with Jimmy Kimmel on his late-night talk show, Ewan McGregor was asked if he and the crew of Obi-Wan Kenobi did anything special for May 4th (Star Wars day for laymen). McGregor revealed that he filmed a scene with someone quite special, though he remained mum on who it was.

“Yes, I got to play a very special scene on May the 4th with someone very special in my life. That’s all I can tell you about it, but it was a great moment.”

Kimmel, of course, pressed on, trying to get any hints from McGregor, who wouldn’t budge. The Obi-Wan Kenobi star did reveal, however, that he wasn’t related to the person he filmed with, and that he’s never been on camera with them before.

Jimmy Kimmel: “Is this someone special that we’ve seen you on camera with before?”
McGregor: “No. I don’t think so.”
Kimmel: “Is this special person related to you in some way?”
McGregor: “No, not necessarily.”

Who do you think this special person is? Comment below and let us know!
