James Gunn is leading the project at DC Studios, it only makes sense that we’d see The Suicide Squad franchise continue. He loves the characters and he likes to tell more stories with them.
One of the most insane characters from that team of dysfunctional superpowered characters is King Shark, and it sounds like we haven’t seen the last of him! During a recent interview with CB, Sylvester Stallone, who voiced the character in the film, confirmed that we would be back for the role!
When asked whether or not he would ever return to the character and work with Gunn again, Stallone said:
“Yes, for sure. I think James has been very generous … He and I are pretty tight. So if there’s an opportunity … I love him, he’s great.”
Stallone didn’t offer any other details, because why would he? But, it will be interesting to see what Gunn has planned for the future of the character and his story arc. As of right now, though, Gunn has been keeping himself busy planning out the next eight to ten years of DC projects for DC Studios with Peter Safran. Gunn Said:
“The opportunity to make DC as great as it can be and as it should be — that is the reason why I’m doing this job because I know that Peter and I can do that. We spent the past couple days with a group of some of the best thinkers in the industry, the best writers in the industry starting to map out that eight- to-10-year plan of what it’s going to look like in theater, in TV, in animation, across the board for these characters.”
Gunn previously teased that they are looking to tell the biggest story ever told across multiple films, saying:
“But all our initial focus is on the story going forward, hammering out the new DCU, & telling the Biggest Story Ever Told across multiple films, television shows, & animated projects. We invite all of the DC fandoms from across the multiverse – and everyone else as well – into this new universe. We can’t wait to reveal more.”
Warner Bros. Discovery CEO David Zaslav also echoed these comments, saying that Gunn and Safran are coming up with a “bible” of how a single universe in DC would work and that their strategy is “drive the hell out of DC.”
