People Can't Get Enough Of King Shark From The Suicide Squad

The Suicide Squad finally landed in cinemas this week, and people cannot get enough of one character in particular: King Shark. Watch the trailer below:

The half-man/half-shark of the piece has quickly become a favourite, with DC fans thanking director James Gunn for bringing him to the big screen.

Voiced by none other than Sylvester Stallone, the aquatic demi-god, otherwise known as Nanaue, teams up with the revamped squad of muscle-bound misfits to take on villain Starro, who happens to be a giant starfish, because why not?

He/it is basically a wise-cracking, hungry fish-man, who won't think twice about ripping someone in half or biting off their head but who also has a heart of gold.

What more do you need?

Praising the character, one fan said: "Saw Suicide Squad last night and I have to say King Shark is probably the best character in cinema history. We must honour and cherish our large friend."

Echoing the love, another chimed in: "Stallone as King Shark is the new Vin Diesel as Groot...I hope this continues. King Shark was my favourite character in the new #SuicideSquad."

"If they make another Suicide squad movie I want more of King Shark," put a third.

While another added: "Every King Shark scene is my favourite scene."

Speaking about playing the character, Stallone said: "He's such a misfit. He's like a shark out of water, but you can't hate this guy. He's so simple-minded.

"He eats people but he saves people. He's just an endearing character, and so odd."

Since its release, critics the world over have expressed their love for the film. Unsurprisingly, the word 'insane' has been bandied about a fair bit.

Collider's Drew Taylor wrote: "The Suicide Squad is gloriously insane and so, so fun... after watching it, you'll think you might have dreamed it."

CinemaBlend's Sean O'Connell added: "This is the best use of DC villains. Mind you, there aren't a lot of predecessors. But THIS is what a Suicide Squad needs to be."

While Germain Lussier from Io9.com said: "What I liked best was its heart. Gunn really balances the silly and the serious in a way that the two compliment each other really well. I dug it."
