Famed Rocky and Rambo actor Sylvester Stallone has been confirmed by The Suicide Squad director James Gunn himself to be playing King Shark. The character usually doesn’t say much beyond, “King Shark is a shark,” but in the trailer, he was seen flexing that fish brain of his by pointing out his own hand.
Many speculated that Thor: Ragnarok director Taika Waititi would be playing the role, and as it stands, he’s the only one left without a confirmed character. However, Starro has been announced now as the main villain, so perhaps the famed New Zealand director is taking on the part of a Superman baddy extraordinaire.
In the comics, King Shark is debated as a god or a mutated man, with his father being “The King of All Sharks,” or the Shark God. He fought against Superboy in Hawaii and got pushed into the Suicide Squad following that clash of titans, so he’s a bonified member through and through, so much so that he’s appearing as a playable character in Rocksteady’s video-game.
James Gunn also discussed his adoration for Harley Quinn, saying, “I have loved the character since she debuted as an animated character. It was my privilege bringing her to life in all her nutso glory.” King Shark can even be found in Harley Quinn’s HBO Max animated series – he’s getting a lot of love lately.
Margot Robbie is returning as Harley Quinn, while Joel Kinnaman is playing Rick Flag, Viola Davis is back as Amanda Waller, Idris Elba is playing Bloodsport, Jai Courtney is Boomerang, Michael Rooker is Savant, Alice Braga is SolSoria, Nathan Fillion is T.D.K., Pete Davidson is Blackguard, John Cena is Peacemaker, David Dastmalchian is Polka-Dot Man, Sean Gunn is Weasel, Mikaela Hoover is Camila, Peter Capaldi is Thinker, Storm Reid is Tyla, Flula Borg is Javelin, Daniela Melchior is Ratcatcher 2, Marisol Correa is Soldado, and Mayling Ng is Mongal.
