A Guardians Of The Galaxy Star Could Play The Suicide Squad’s King Shark

Fast and Furious’ villainous car-wizard Cipher could be getting her own spinoff. Jason Momoa teases an eco-minded Aquaman 2. Harvey Birdman’s assistant Birdgirl is getting a TV series. Plus, Cloak & Dagger gets downright pixellated, a violent new clip from Brightburn, and it takes two to tango on the next iZombie. To me, my spoilers!

The Suicide Squad

The Wrap reports that longtime James Gunn collaborator Michael Rooker is in talks to join the director once again in The Suicide Squad. Rooker would play King Shark (who previously had a TV role on The Flash and was seriously considered for the first Suicide Squad film).

King Shark is an iconic DC villain who is, well, a humanoid shark. Heeeeeeeeee’s a shark, he’s a shark, he’s a shark, he’s a shark!


Brianna Hildebrand, Mary-Louise Parker, Emile Hirsch and Malcolm McDowell have joined the cast of Jeffrey Morris’ sci-fi feature Persephone.

According to Screen Daily, the film is “set in the year 2185 when humans have fled an uninhabitable Earth in search of a new world. When a team of three astronauts discover a massive planet, they are dispatched to engage with an unexpected lifeform that threatens the future of humanity.”

Fast and Furious: Cipher

THR has word Universal is planning “a female-fronted Fast and Furious spinoff built around Charlize Theron’s character, Cipher”.

Aquaman 2

Appearing as a guest on Ellen, Jason Momoa revealed he and writer David Leslie Johnson-McGoldrick have “locked in” an ecologically-minded story for Aquaman 2.

I was excited to get back in there, and so I’ve been working with our previous writer, and getting in there, and we’ve got a locked story, and we’re getting into it.

I was really, really, really passionate to do the second one because it’s the first time where it’s all on Earth. It’s combining land and sea, kind of like what I’m doing with this [environmental cause]. There’s no outside aliens destroying Earth, it’s us.
