Many rumors and theories have been spinning out of Suicide Squad set photos and inside sources including the great scooper Umberto Gonzalez over at Heroic Hollywood. The following RUMORS were reported on his site earlier today regarding the exact cameo or appearance of Aquaman in Suicide Squad.
Basically he goes on to state that in Suicide Squad, Aquaman is being held captive by Amanda Waller who also has his trident. The question however is how exactly did he get captured if he’s the King of Atlantis. Well, Umberto goes on to answer that for us. He states that he was captured after losing a fight with none other than the King of Sharks, King Shark. We are also told that Amanda Waller also has King Shark captured.
This is an interesting rumor as I have some big questions about it of course. Is King Shark working with Amanda Waller? It would make sense if that was her plan to capture Aquaman, but it doesn’t make sense for her to have him captured too unless he is an eventual Suicide Squad member, so we’ll have to see how that plays out. I also wonder of Suicide Squad takes place before or after Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice. Is Aquaman capture after the events of BvS? Or does Suicide Squad take place before it? There are man questions and theories that you can spin out of this. I actually hope that he’s not captured at all and that this rumor turns out to be false. Aquaman shouldn’t be shown captured if he’s shown to be a badass in BvS which we also don’t know yet, but I’m assuming. Also, we already have Batman and Joker appearing in the film so I really don’t need any other big names like Aquaman in it. I really didn’t want Batman or Joker. Joker fits a little better but I’m more interested in the other members. I have hope for King Shark after seeing Assault on Arkham, he’s overall a pretty cool character, but tough to do I would say.
Anyways, I will continue to follow all of the scoops and news about Suicide Squad as more information rolls out.
Suicide Squad Release Date: August 5, 2016
