Well it’s official and it comes from the man himself as Joel Kinnaman has confirmed that he will indeed return for Director James Gunn’s SUICIDE SQUAD follow up.
Kinnaman, of course, portrays Rick Flag who is the leader of Task Force X who comprises some of most ruthless anti-heroes in the DC Universe. Kinnaman made the announcement via his official Instagram page where he posted a photo of him at a gun range. He joins other returning cast members that include Margot Robbie, Jai Courtney and Viola Davis who were all present and accounted for in the original. Will Smith declined to reprise his role of Deadshot due to scheduling conflicts although the door has been left open for his return. Check out Kinnaman’s post below!
There are rumors circulating that the returning cast would be offed in the first part of the film but I don’t see Gunn doing that to such talent even though this sequel is a soft reboot. We shall see.
