The Suicide Squad director James Gunn has hinted that Steve Agee isn’t playing King Shark.
One of the most anticipated movies hitting theaters next year is James Gunn’s The Suicide Squad, which will be a reboot of sorts for the famed group. The Suicide Squad is set to feature a lot of new characters that weren’t previously seen in Suicide Squad, though director James Gunn has continued to remain coy as to who will be in the film. Rumors have pointed towards several characters being in The Suicide Squad, including King Shark, who is said to be played by Steve Agee.
Steve Agee recently finished filming his performance in The Suicide Squad, which prompted him to thank and tag the director on Twitter. Following up, director James Gunn thanked the actor and hinted that Steve Agee won’t be playing the character that he is rumored to be playing in The Suicide Squad, which is King Shark. You can check out the exchange between The Suicide Squad director James Gunn and rumored King Shark actor Steve Agee below.
You’re welcome!! And you’re incredible in the movie… even though you might not quite be who people think you are. 🤣 https://t.co/N5Pe8JoBKS

The rumors that Steve Agee is playing King Shark have been widely publicized and James Gunn is known to be frequently commenting on rumors and leaks. James Gunn has a huge encyclopedic knowledge of DC characters, including The Suicide Squad, so it wouldn’t be surprising if Steve Agee was playing a character barely anyone has heard of. Even then, King Shark is a relatively unkown character to the general masses.
What are your thoughts on James Gunn saying Steve Agee isn’t playing who fans think he is? Do you think Steve Agee is still playing King Shark or someone else? Comment below and let us know!
The first Suicide Squad followed a team of supervillains who were recruited by the government for a dangerous black ops mission in exchange for reduced sentences. The ensemble cast included Will Smith as Deadshot, Margot Robbie as Harley Quinn and Jared Leto as The Joker. However, James Gunn is expected to deliver on the fresh take on the Suicide Squad in his upcoming movie.
Written and directed by James Gunn, The Suicide Squad stars David Dastmalchian, John Cena, Jai Courtney, Joaquín Cosío, Nathan Fillion, Joel Kinnaman, Mayling Ng, Flula Borg, Sean Gunn, Juan Diego Botto, Storm Reid, Pete Davidson, Taika Waititi, Alice Braga, Steve Agee, Tinashe Kajese, Daniela Melchior, Peter Capaldi, Julio Ruiz, Jennifer Holland, Viola Davis, Idris Elba, Margot Robbie, and Michael Rooker.
