Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje Talks Killer Croc in Suicide Squad


Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje who’s playing Killer Croc in Suicide Squad, was recently interview by on his role in the film. In the interview Akinnuoye-Agbaje talks a bit on his character’s criminal origins when we first meet him, the prosthetics plus makeup used for the character, the resources he used for the role and much more. 

On Killer Croc’s previously back story before being locked up in Arkham:

“At the time you meet him in this film, he’s a fully-fledged criminal,” the star tells “He’s really one of the baddest criminals known to be roaming in Gotham, hence his lockup in Arkham. He’s tangled with the Batman and here he is amongst these other foes. He’s very much a formidable force at the time that you meet him.”

On the prosthetics and makeup used for Killer Croc:

“The head and shoulders are prosthetic that were glued onto my face and then the body down was painted,” Akinnuoye-Agbaje explains. “It took about five hours to do, but it was something that was a challenge that I was up for because I wanted to set a new standard for what can be done with prosthetics. We could have easily CGI’d this, but David [Ayer] was insistent on their being an actor to bring out the soul of the character. It gave me an opportunity to show what I could do with prosthetics.”

On the resources he used to study on his role as Killer Croc:

“I looked at all of it,” he says. “I went back to the young Waylon Jones. The animated series. I had my own take, too. I researched cannibalism. I actually went out and watched real crocodiles, too. We incorporated some of the real life fight techniques that crocodiles do when they kill their prey. The death roll.”

On how often we’ll see Killer Croc in water:

“Oh, you’re going to get more than one water scene!” he laughs. “I’m a croc after all, man. That’s my territory!”
