Posting an image of King Shark on Instagram, former concept artist Jerad S. Marantz publicly shared lately that he has created a number of creature design for an alleged Batman game earlier that eventually got canned permanently.

He will be a playable character in new Suicide Squad game, alongside his fellow Task Force X members Captain Boomerang, Deadshot and Harley Quinn on a mission to take out Superman and his mind-controlled friends in Justice League.
