Fresh off the news that Viola Davis would be returning as Amanda Waller in James Gunn’s The Suicide Squad, Discussing Film has reported that her right-hand man Rick Flag will be joining her.
Joel Kinnaman, who originally replaced Tom Hardy in 2016’s Suicide Squad, will be returning to the DCEU to play the former marine in what is being reported as a new take for the team of misfits.
It is surprising to see the steady flow of returning faces to the franchise as it was recently reported that a new list of DC characters would be comprising the squad. Kinnaman joins both Davis and Jai Courtney who are reprising their roles in James Gunn’s first DC film.
What do you think? Will more original members of the “skwad” return? Let us know in the comments below.
The Suicide Squad is set to hit theaters August 6, 2021.
