DC figure too fat? That’s behind the criticism of the new comic blockbuster

With the DC FanDome, anticipation for upcoming comic adaptations such as “Wonder Woman 1984”, “The Batman” or “The Suicide Squad” has just been fueled. But not with all fans, because a shark of all things is supposed to be too fat.

Comic giant DC celebrated a great success with the DC FanDome. The anticipation for the coming works of the comic bookmaker or materials based on the numerous characters has seldom been fueled much better. Film fans in particular got their money’s worth.

Among other things, they celebrated the first moving pictures of Robert Pattinson as “The Batman” or Zack Snyder’s trailer for his version of the “Justice League”. For the most part, the very funny panel on “The Suicide Squad” by James Gunn was really well received – including two videos in which the characters of the suicide squad, which this time should live up to its name, were presented.

But not all fans are happy with the first impression of the new Suicide Squad – especially not with King Shark.

Is King Shark Too Fat?

In the social networks and in comments under videos and articles there is a repeated statement that the cult DC villain King Shark, a humanoid shark with super-animal and superhuman powers on two legs, is too fat.

that the iconic DC villain King Shark, a humanoid shark with super-animal and superhuman powers on two legs, is too fat.

King Shark’s a bit fat. I guess there’s plenty of fish in the sea. https://t.co/jxl6Vq2qI4— Jaycarl Magdaong

A comparison is made with the TV series “The Flash” from the so-called Arrowverse, in which King Shark appears again and again as a secondary character and rather shows off a washboard stomach.

I can’t believe the CW designed a better King Shark than a big budget movie that made a little fat king shark in

There is no such thing as one King Shark

Apart from the fact that fat-shaming is also inappropriate for humanoid sharks, critics should consider that there are different versions of King Shark (as of almost all comic characters) (in the meantime, for example, he was a hammerhead shark and had one completely) different optics).

The series “The Flash” mentioned, for example, annoyed many DC fans because King Shark is actually an ordinary person here who was only turned into a shark (and is temporarily cured in the meantime), while in the comics he is the son of one ancient god has always been a humanoid shark.

And King Shark didn’t always show his abs as clearly as in the TV series with Grant Gustin. His current implementation in the adult animation series “Harley Quinn”, where he is one of the main characters, is very popular with many fans.

In the series currently running in the USA in the second season on the DCUniverse streaming service, he has a figure similar to what now appears to be in “The Suicide Squad”: huge, with strong arms, but also with a few curves.

In the series, the creators have chosen a different approach for the antihero anyway. He not only likes to wear a hoodie (as in the picture above), but is significantly less aggressive than usual, usually very friendly and also a little cozy. However, that can change quickly if he smells blood. A video gives you another impression of King Shark in “Harley Quinn”.

We are definitely excited to see how “Guardians Of The Galaxy” director James Gunn will stage King Shark at the very first cinema appearance of the character – and use him in his brightly colored ensemble.

Taika Waititi as King Shark?

Incidentally, the human shark is “played” by Steve Agee, although the character actually comes from the computer and the ex-Jimmy Kimmel author and Sarah Silverman Sidekick had more of the role on the set than a reference (i.e. for orientation for the other performers). It is not yet known who will speak King Shark (probably not Agee, because he plays another role).

Taika Waititi is obvious here, because the “Thor 3” director is part of the cast, but his role was not revealed.

It remains to be seen whether he would play a major role in this. As I said, the Suicide Squad in James Gunn’s film is said to live up to its name. So some of the characters should be killed – probably quite quickly.

Here again one of the preview videos with the first scenes from the film:
