The first official trailer for The Suicide Squad was released this week and DC fans are super excited to see the group of anti-heroes and villains team up to save the day. One character who fans were especially excited to see in the trailer was King Shark, who we just learned is being played by legendary actor, Sylvester Stallone. Stallone posted on social media this week to celebrate King Shark's debut, and he's not the only one. Director James Gunn took to Twitter to share a hilarious King Shark fan cam set to the infamous song "Baby Shark."
Gunn just captioned the video "lol," which really says it all. You can check out the fan cam in the tweet below, but beware... the song WILL get stuck in your head!
Earlier this week, Gunn answered some fan questions about the trailer and revealed why King Shark was changed from a hammerhead to a great white. "I did tests with the hammerhead design, which I love & originally thought I’d use. But having eyes on the sides far apart made it incredibly awkward shooting interactions with other people. You couldn’t really see him looking at the other person & the shots tended to be too wide," Gunn explained.
"I saw it and it's unbelievable, so I'm very proud to be included," Stallone wrote at the time. "I can't tell you anything more about it because you're going to have to wait and see that, but it's going to be well worth the wait. Anyway, keep punching and see you in the movies."
