According to TheWrap, the supervillain King Shark appears to be one of the newest characters to The Suicide Squad sequel and Guardians of the Galaxy alum Michael Rooker is in talks to play the role. Created by Karl Kesel in 1994, the supervillain King Shark is a humanoid shark and the son of Chondrakha, the God of all Sharks. Introduced as a Superboy villain, King Shark has been a member of the Secret Six, the Secret Society of Super-Villains and the Suicide Squad. The sequel to 2016's Suicide Squad is written and will be directed by Guardians of the Galaxy director James Gunn. The sequel will have a completely new take on the property, in which DC supervillains are recruited by the government to carry out secret missions too dirty for the likes of Superman and Batman. Peter Safran and Charles Roven are producing. The sequel to 2016’s “Suicide Squad” will hit theaters on Aug. 6, 2021.
According to THR, the next Suicide Squad movie which is being written and likely directed by ex-Guardian Of The Galaxy director James Gunn will be released in 2021 and is expected to be more of a relaunch with mostly all-new cast, than a sequel to the 2016 movie. The title for this one is simply "The Suicide Squad", which will take the franchise into an all-new direction with more of a Guardians of the Galaxy feel to it. In other words, Warner Bros. seems to be moving more and more away from their previously established Snyder DCverse. This would be in keeping with the other recent big DC movie news about the next Batman movie featuring a younger Bruce Wayne and no longer having Ben Affleck in the role of the capped crusader.
THR reports that former Guardians of the Galaxy director James Gunn who was recently fired from Disney for old tweets he made regarding rape and pedophilia will now be heading to Warner Bros. to pen the script for the next DC Comic based Suicide Squad movie. No word yet on whether or not he will direct the film or not.
