We’re all in love with The Suicide Squad‘s King Shark, the dad-bod abomination that bites the heads off people and rips men in half. The character is voiced by Sylvester Stallone, and according to Suicide Squad director James Gunn, that was the plan all along. In a recent interview, Gunn revealed that he’s reached a point where he can pretty much get any actor he wants – kind of a #humblebrag there, James – and he wrote King Shark specifically with Stallone in mind.

It’s only been a few days since DC fans were treated to a red-band trailer for writer/director James Gunn‘s upcoming The Suicide Squad. There have even been some character posters and TV spots released since then. But it looks like we’re in a golden period of anticipation for this movie, because Gunn has just shared a green-band trailer on his Twitter account that is, believe it or not, better than the previous trailer that everyone was going nuts about.

Who is going to die in The Suicide Squad? How will Starro come into play? Most importantly, does Peter Capaldi’s The Thinker speak in a Scottish accent? (Yes, he does.) The first official The Suicide Squad trailer provided a perfect tease, giving us a glimpse of the action and absurd tone of the James Gunn-directed movie without revealing much of the plot. But Gunn has decided to spoil fans and give us not one, but two new TV spots featuring more action and, best of all, Peter Capaldi talking in that beautiful Scottish brogue.

While Polka-Dot Man has weaseled his way into some fans’ hearts (read: mine), another character from James Gunn‘s upcoming comic book movie sequel The Suicide Squad seems to have captured the attention of the world in the wake of the film’s most recent trailer: King Shark, the massive half-man, half-shark beast who eats human beings whole and gnaws on human skulls for kicks.

Now this is what I call a Suicide Squad. After the first iteration of the DC Comics team of bad guys trying to do some good failed to stir up much excitement, Guardians of the Galaxy franchise director James Gunn is giving them a bit of an overhaul. The Suicide Squad is coming to theaters and HBO Max this summer with a whole bunch of new team members eager to die while saving the world. Well, at least one of them seems eager to bite the dust. The rest are basically given no other choice.
The new The Suicide Squad trailer introduces us to the new team, promises some stellar comedy, gives us what looks like another incredible Sylvester Stallone character, and even brings a DC Comics villain who we never thought we’d see on the big screen. Plus, there’s far more banter about dicks than we were expecting, and we already expected a little bit. We dig into all of that in our The Suicide Squad trailer breakdown. Read More »
Don’t get too attached. That’s the warning tagline that comes with each new character poster for The Suicide Squad, James Gunn‘s upcoming comic book movie for Warner Bros., which follows up David Ayer’s 2016 Suicide Squad. And it’s easy to see why: it’s in the title, and in the name of the team, made of up DC Comics rogues sent on dangerous missions by Amanda Waller (Viola Davis) and they’re not expected to survive. You’ve seen the trailer, so check out the character posters for The Suicide Squad below.

The first trailer for The Suicide Squad arrives later today, but ahead of that, director James Gunn debuted a stylish, colorful poster that appears to be a direct reference to the poster for the 1967 war movie The Dirty Dozen. Like Suicide Squad, that Lee Marvin flick also dealt with a squad of criminals recruited to partake in a dangerous, potentially mission. But there were a lot-less shark-people and Jai Courtneys in that movie. Read More »
