Since it was officially announced that filmmaker James Gunn would be in charge of the new Suicide squad movie, fans have wondered who Gunn would pick to be the main villain of the story. Gunn’s trailer Suicide squad revealed that that villain was Starro, the Conqueror of the World. The character is a continent-sized alien starfish who takes over entire worlds sending his smallest starfish minions to take control of a planet’s sensitive population. In an interview with Geek’s Den, Gunn explained that his version of Starro is both funny and scary.

“Starro is funny because he’s ridiculous. He’s a giant sky blue starfish, but he’s also fucking scary. As a kid I thought he was the scariest thing ever … and I think that exemplifies what this movie is: It’s ridiculous and it’s also scary and serious. So he works really well as the villain in the movie, as one of the villains, actually. “

Hollywood is seeing something of a resurgence in the popularity of great monster movies, especially with the recent success of Godzilla vs. Kong.

“It was not something to contrast the first film. It was not about going through a checklist of this is good, this is bad, this works, this does not … but the concept that [Suicide Squad creator] John Ostrander started out in the comics, that these are B-grade crappy superheroes that are considered expendable by the US government.And they get sent on these black ops missions, where they probably won’t make it, but who gives a shit. shit because are they fucking prisoners without many skills? “
