Steve Agee - Featured - 01

After numerous rumors, it seems that we finally know who will be responsible for voicing King Shark. Frequent James Gunn collaborator Steve Agee will be voicing the mammoth character.

According to a report from Deadline Agee has run the role of the villainous King Shark. Agee has worked with Gunn previously playing Gef in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, and EJ in Brightburn.

Considering all of the teases Gunn has been making about King Shark being in the film, this is a welcome conclusion to the saga.

The addition of Agee marks the second addition to the cast this week with Flula Borg joining earlier as the love interest for one of the characters.

Even with production so close to commencing – reportedly on Sept. 23 –  we still don’t have a solid lock on the cast. Currently, Joel Kinnaman looks to be returning as Flagg, and word is that Viola Davis will also reprise her role as Amanda Waller.

As to new characters, David Dastmalchian is confirmed as Polka-Dot Man, Daniela Melchior is rumored for a genderswapped Ratcatcher, and we still have no clear indication who Idris Elba is playing. A new rumor, however, points to his character having a daughter, so that narrows down the field a bit. And the final new character rumor has Benicio del Toro possibly up for the role of the film’s villain.

The Suicide Squad is due to hit theaters on Aug. 6, 2021.
