Talking to ComicBook.com’s Chris Killian in a recent interviewactor Sylvester Stallone – who portrayed King Shark in The Suicide Squad – confirmed that he would return to voice the character in some capacity again. The comment came after Stallone was asked if he would ever return to the character and work with Gunn again.

“Yeah for sure. I think James has been very generous… He and I are pretty close. So if there’s an opportunity… I love him, he’s great.” Stallone said.

Stallone didn’t say much more about what the future holds for the character, but with Gunn and DC Studios co-head Peter Safran hard at work crafting the future of DC Studios, it wouldn’t be shocking to see The Suicide Squad be a part of it. With John Cena’s Peacemaker HBO series also proving to be a hit for the DC world, as well as many of the characters from his films coming to life, a sequel wouldn’t be out of the question either.

Stallone’s comments also came a few days later Gunn said himself that he was planning the future of DC Studios, with the director saying that they have spent time this month trying to come up with the next decade of content for DC.

“The opportunity to make DC as great as it can be and as it should be — that’s why I’m doing this job, because I know Peter and I can do it,” Gunn said. “We spent the last few days with a group of some of the best thinkers in the business, the best writers in the business starting to map out the eight-to-10-year plan for what it’s going to look like in the theater, in TV , in animation, across the board for these characters.”
