Yesterday it was reported that James Gunn will be writing and possibly directing Suicide Squad 2 for Warner Bros. A lot of fans are excited to see how he ends up handling these characters. He did such a great job bring the misfit characters from Guardians of the Galaxy to life, and I’m hoping that he can bring that same magic to DC’s Suicide Squad.
There’s one Guardians of the Galaxy actor ready to jump on board Gunn’s Suicide Squad 2 and that actor is Dave Buatista. Not long after the news hit, he tweeted out the following:
Where do I sign up! James Gunn Boards ‘Suicide Squad 2’ To Write And Possibly Direct – Deadline https://t.co/OwdDbAm1Ks— Dave Bautista (@DaveBautista) October 9, 2018
Dave Bautista has been a big supporter of Gunn since he was fired by Disney from Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 so it’s not surprising that he would want to work with him again on Suicide Squad 2. The question is, who could Dave Bautista play in the film?
Personally, I’d love to see Gunn bring King Shark into the story! That’s also a perfect character for Bautista to take on! King Shark is a humanoid shark that has super strength, berserker strength, superhuman durability, and enhanced senses.
King Shark is also as intelligent as a human. He can talk normally and also read. He also has a very keen sense of humor and one of his greatest fears is being vegetarian. That sounds like a role Bautista could have fun playing!
Are there any other DC characters that you think the actor could play in the film?
