In addition to playing Economos in the DCEU, Agee also stood in as King Shark on the set of The Suicide Squad. Back when The Suicide Squad was in production, ComicBook.com's Brandon Davis paid a visit to the set and spoke with Agee and his co-star, David Dastmalchian (Polka-Dot Man), about Agee's work as King Shark.
"I'm doing what Sean Gunn did for Rocket, is doing the motion capture," Agee explained. "But it's really easy. I come in and we run the scene with me and my weird suit and headpiece, and then I get to go sit down, and they keep redoing the same where they're going to digitally put [in King Shark]."
As for The Adam Project, Reynolds stars as a man who travels back in time to meet up with his younger self (Walker Scobell) as well as the younger versions of his parents, who are played by Mark Ruffalo and Jennifer Garner. The movie also features Zoe Saldana and Catherine Keener.
