As the new Suicide Squad movie gets closer to being released, the famous actor Joel Kinnaman gives the fans a sneak peek into the movie and his character. The movie Suicide Squad which is set to release on the 5th of August in India is an adaptation of the 1989 comic book series. Joel Kinnaman who is going to play the role of Col. Rick Flag yet again says that The Suicide Squad’s Rick Flag would be completely different from the character that he played in the 2016 Suicide Squad which was directed by David Ayer. He quoted “I had to look at it in a way that I had never looked at the character before.”
“It was a very different take on Flag. I felt like it was a much more idealistic and less cynical version. It felt like he had much more emotions available. In some ways, it felt closer to myself.”
As the much-awaited debut of the film comes closer, fans seem really excited to see what DC film has in store for them this time. The movie doesn’t only bring back certain characters from the 2016 version of David Ayer like Margot Robbie returning as Harley Quinn, Viola Davis as Amanda Waller, Jay Courtney also returns to play as Captain Boomerang, and of course Kinnaman as Rick Flag. The new characters that could be seen in this movie include the famous wrestler John Cena as the Peacemaker, Idris Elba as Bloodsport, Sylvester Stallone as King Shark, and Nathan Fillon as T.D.K. The fans sure do have their hopes up considering the amazing cast that the DC Studios lined up this time for the movie.
The new Gunn looks like a character who is about to fill the prequel of the movie with a lot of unnecessary humor which would be more like a character that he played in the comic rather than the one he played in the 2016 version of the movie in which his character was considered to be very serious. As we can see in the trailer of the movie his appearance also looks a lot goofier with the yellow t-shirt and a bit of military gear equipped on the sides which are contrary to what he played in the last movie in which he could be seen as wearing all military uniform. Kinnaman also has been very vocal about the film by appreciating James Gunn, the writer-director of the movie. He quoted that the film has been one of the most entertaining films that he has ever seen. While this might come as a spoiler to some readers and viewers but Gunn has hinted that a film is about to have a high death toll of characters went on saying as much as 2 characters might die in the movie and this also particularly made him cry. As we could see in the movies like Flash in which the multiverse was introduced, the new Suicide Squad movie could also be taken place in a different universe altogether and not in the same one as its 2016 counterpart.
