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.
It feels as if every month, we are reading about a DC superhero movie being developed or a DC superhero movie being canned. Forbes contributor Mark Hughes has taken a look at the future of DC Films such as Aquaman, The Flash, Suicide Squad, Birds Of Prey, Batgirl, Superman and Shazam! Warner Bros. have announced they are cashing in on Aquaman and have hired David Leslie Johnson-McGoldrick to write the script for the sequel. The sequel is being produced by director James Wan and Peter Safran and have made over $328 million in North America and $784 million internationally. DC has discussed making The Flash movie based on the popularity of the TV show, but has been repeatedly delayed in the past, and recently once again slowed down and pushed back the expected start of production. This project may never get out of first gear. The Suicide Squad sequel is looking to take a whole new direction with having a new cast of characters and avoid direct tie-in to the first film's events. Harley Quinn is not expected to return, and James Gunn's script will be a new approach and rethinking of the property. The Mad Love-type Joker and Harley Quinn film has also fallen by the wayside, as has the solo Joker project for Jared Leto's version of the character from Suicide Squad. For the record, Birds of Prey and Batgirl will not be tied together, for those who mistakenly believed the rumors that Barbara Gordon would have a continuing arc through both films. And there is not a Gotham City Sirens project crossing over with Birds of Prey, despite rumors to the contrary. Hughes wanted to point out after discussing the Superman movies that Henry Cavill is not on the verge of making another Superman picture and did not film a secret cameo for Shazam!
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.
