Writer-director James Gunn recently shared a behind-the-scenes video from the set of The Suicide Squad DC. The clip shows how King Shark’s footprints were made. As the follow-up to David Ayer’s Suicide Squad (2016), The Suicide Squad movie introduced newcomers Bloodsport, Peacemaker, Ratcatcher 2, Polka-Dot Man, and Nanaue aka King Shark to Rick Flag, Harley Quinn, and Task Force X. Following in the footsteps of Guardians of the Galaxy‘s Groot, Gunn’s latest anthropomorphic, CGI creation, King Shark has become a fan favorite in the DCEU.
Gunn took to Instagram to share a behind-the-scenes video of how King Shark’s footprints were made for a deleted scene in The Suicide Squad. The clip shows props master Drew Petrotta spacing out the character’s (The Suicide Squad cast) steps in the streets of Panama City, where the film’s Corto Maltese showdown with Starro the Conqueror was filmed.
The Suicide Squad’s somewhat silly but lovable descendant of an ancient shark god spends the beginning of the film struggling with an insatiable hunger for ‘nom noms.’ Cleo Cazo aka Ratcatcher 2 teaches King Shark to distinguish friend from food, making him an important member of Task Force X’s group of outcasts in their mission to Corto Maltese. From Tuesday, October 26th, The Suicide Squad and, in turn, Task Force X became available on Blu-ray, 4K, and DVD formats.
The Suicide Squad’s home edition includes commentary by Gunn, a gag reel, an alternate trailer, and, some deleted or extended scenes. Moreover, there are eight additional scenes, three of which include one of Gunn’s favorite characters, King Shark. The scenes offer an even greater idea about King Shark, with one of the scenes seeing him play with two children and another that sees him staring out the window of the bus longing to fit in with the world around him.
