THE SUICIDE SQUAD FILM IS CLOSING TO ITS PREMIERE, AND NOW SOME ARE REQUESTING THAT KING SHARK BE ORIGIN FROM VERACRUZ, MEXICO
King Shark is one of the characters that will appear in the new film The Suicide Squad, from director James Gunn. This film is the most important based on a DC Comics series that will be released this year.
Since the appearance of this villain in the film was revealed, it has attracted a lot of attention. Especially because of the way he recreates him and his violent but funny behavior. It seems that it has caused a great impact in Mexico.
KING SHARK APPEARS IN THE NEW THE SUICIDE SQUAD
Especially in Veracruz. Supposedly, someone from there started a petition on the Change.org platform for the localized and subtitled version of this film to mention that this character is a native of the state.
Of course, this is something completely foreign to the comics. In the original story, he hails from the seas surrounding the Hawaiian Islands. Currently, he is handled as the son of the Shark God or King of All Sharks.
The petition can read ‘we are fans of Super Heroes comics and movies and we ask Warner Brothers that during the upcoming Suicide Squad 2 movie it is mentioned that the character King Shark is originally from Veracruz’.
From what you see, apparently they want to make a kind of analogy with the mascot of the Red Sharks of Veracruz. Sadly, this Mexican soccer team disappeared in December 2019.
THE CHARACTER IS FROM HAWAII, NOT FROM VERACRUZ
All due to financial problems and other situations. After what was mentioned before, it can be read ‘Veracruz fans we would be very pleased if you would fulfill this request…’.
To the above, it is added “and we promise to support the premiere of the film on social networks and at the box office, we hope to have your signature for this noble petition.” So far the petition of this character from The Suicide Squad has more than six thousand signatures.
At the end it can be read ‘take into account that the shark is a very loved animal in this area of Mexico, and our request makes a lot of sense for the inhabitants of the region’.
Will Warner Bros. listen to them? We don’t know, but the number of signatures is too low. In addition, it is a mystery if King Shark ever mentions his nationality in The Suicide Squad, or if it is relevant to the film, which will be released in the US in August.
