Just before the weekend, news from The Wrap and Variety came out of the Suicide Squad camp that Joel Kinnaman is in early talks to take on the role of Rick Flag, which Tom Hardy left from and one that Jake Gyllenhaal passed on.
As of yet nothing has been confirmed since then, but with the films shoot beginning in April, we should hear something confirmed within the next few weeks, if not sometime this week. If Kinnaman does sign up for the role as Rick Flag, the leader of the Suicide Squad, a band of villains forced to do good, he will join characters that will consist of Deadshot (Will Smith), The Joker (Jared Leto), Harley Quinn (Margot Robbie), Captain Boomerang (Jai Courtney) and Enchantress (Cara Delevingne).
Personally I like Kinnaman and reckon he will be a good fit, it’s the role itself I’m curious about, such as how big a role it will be?
The film is set for a cinematic release in August 2016.
