It’s learned King Shark almost made it into the Suicide Squad movie.
David Ayer was asked the question on Twitter, “What other characters had you considered including into the Skwad that didn’t quite make the cut?”
With Ayer responding via video (watch below), “So one of the characters I was thinking about for the Squad line-up was actually King Shark, but we realized it would take a lot of work, lot of CG work, I wasn’t quite comfortable having a full CG character. We actually ended up going with Killer Croc who turned out to be the right guy for the job.”
It’s probably a good thing King Shark never made it into Suicide Squad otherwise the character may have never shown up on The Flash. WB put the clamp down on Arrow from using Suicide Squad characters as they thought the brand recognition would get mixed up in the eyes of the fans.
Speaking of King Shark, DC Collectibles also revealed the cool Flash action figure at Comic-Con. Check that out below as well.
“Suicide Squad” has an August 5, 2016 release date directed by David Ayer starring Will Smith as Deadshot, Jared Leto as the Joker, Margot Robbie as Harley Quinn, Cara Delevingne as Enchantress, Jai Courtney as Boomerang, Joel Kinnaman as Rick Flag, Viola Davis as Amanda Waller, Adam Beach as Slipknot, Karen Fukuhara as Katana, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje as Killer Croc, Jay Hernandez as El Diablo, and Scott Eastwood in an unknown role.
It feels good to be bad… Assemble a team of the world’s most dangerous, incarcerated Supervillains, provide them with the most powerful arsenal at the government’s disposal, and send them off on a mission to defeat an enigmatic, insuperable entity. U.S. intelligence officer Amanda Waller has determined only a secretly convened group of disparate, despicable individuals with next to nothing to lose will do. However, once they realize they weren’t picked to succeed but chosen for their patent culpability when they inevitably fail, will the Suicide Squad resolve to die trying, or decide it’s every man for himself?
