In 2016, David Ayer’s ‘Suicide Squad’ was released, which followed Amanda Waller (Viola Davis) assembling a team of dangerous, incarcerated supervillains for a top-secret mission. Now armed with government weapons, Deadshot (Will Smith), Harley Quinn (Margot Robbie), Captain Boomerang, Killer Croc and Katanna must learn to work together to battle a mysterious and powerful entity.
And now in 2019, we have ‘The Suicide Squad’ going into production in September in Atlanta with James Gunn set to write and direct and Peter Safran set to produce. Fans wondered who from the original film would return, and as of writing, it has been revealed that Margot Robbie will reprise her role as Harley Quinn, Jai Courtney will reprise his role as Captain Boomerang, Viola Davis will reprise her role as Amanda Waller and although Will Smith will not return, Idris Elba will instead take over the role of Deadshot.
However, fans have wondered about whether Joel Kinnaman will reprise their respective role as Rick Flagg, and now we can confirm that Joel Kinnaman will reprise his role as Rick Flagg in James Gunn’s ‘The Suicide Squad’.
James Gunn’s ‘The Suicide Squad’ seems to be continuing the story of Task Force X whilst building the universe with Collider reporting that Ratcatcher, Peacemaker, King Shark and Polka Dot Man will feature in the new team roster as well as Revenge of the Fans reporting that an alien woman will also appear in the film (maybe Rampage?).
Warner Bros had no comment on this story.
Joel Kinnaman’s representatives are yet to respond for comment.
