Yesterday saw the long-awaited first glimpse of James Gunn's The Suicide Squad at DC FanDome, and we finally learned who all of the stars are playing in the movie. Well... almost. There was one notable name from the long cast list that was missing: Taika Waititi. Waititi is best known for directing Thor: Ragnarok, and he's also done some notable voice work. He voices Korg in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and just earned an Emmy nomination for voicing IG-11 in Star Wars: The Mandalorian. Waititi's history with voice acting is leading many people to believe he's voicing King Shark in The Suicide Squad.
While Steve Agee was revealed to be playing King Shark in the panel, the actor confirmed on social media that he's the "on-set reference," which means we still don't know who is voicing the character. While most people assume that's the role going to Waititi, some fans have other guesses. You can check out the tweets below...
Who else is thinking that Starro the Conquerer is who Taika Waititi is voicing in #TheSuicideSquad?— DEJ | #BlackLivesMatter (@DawsonEJoyce) August 22, 2020

"Can Only Assume"
Steve Agee was described as the "on-set King Shark", right? I can only assume Taika Waititi is doing the voice.August 22, 2020
Sean Gunn Vibes
James Gunn referred to Steve Agee as the "on set" #KingShark in #TheSuicideSquad (like Sean Gunn is the on set Rocket in the MCU). Did Gunn mention the voice of King Shark? I'm guessing that's Taika Waititi. #DCFanDome pic.twitter.com/LSybidEU66— Sean Gerber (@MrSeanGerber) August 22, 2020

The Return of Kalmaku?
#TheSuicideSquad Taika Waititi is either Starro or Kalmaku from Green Lantern.— Jonathan Eilbeck (@JonathanEilbeck) August 22, 2020
