The Wrap is exclusively reporting Frank Grillo has been cast as Rick Flag Sr. for the upcoming DC animated series Creature Commandos.
Creature Commandos, initially in DC Comics set during World War II where a team of classic monsters assembled to fight Nazis, the animated series will be revamped with a modern concept as Amanda Waller creates a black ops team out of monstrous prisoners.
In DC Comics, Rick Flag Sr. is known for being the leader of the original Suicide Squad, a World War II unit, and later joined Task Force X after the war. The character is a highly skilled soldier and strategist, with a strong sense of duty and loyalty to his country. In recent media, we have seen Rick Flag Jr. appear in 2016’s Suicide Squad and then the 2021 follow-up ‘The Suicide Squad’, portrayed by Joel Kinnaman. It’s only speculative at the minute as to whether or not that Rick Flag Jr./Peacemaker thread will carry over in future projects in accordance with Rick Flag Sr.
Frank Grillo will be starring alongside Sean Gunn, who will be reprising the role of Weasel (portrayed in The Suicide Squad) in the seven-episode animated series, which is being written by James Gunn who has stated that the voice actors cast in these roles in Creature Commandos will also portray their live-action counterparts in future DC projects.
Creature Commandos currently has no release date set.
