REPORT: Joel Kinnaman Returning As Rick Flag For Suicide Squad 2

joel kinnaman as rick flag

Although it's said to be a "total reboot," a new report indicates James Gunn's The Suicide Squad will see the return of another familiar character from the first film: Joel Kinnaman's Rick Flag.

According to Discussing Film, Kinnaman will return as the character, though the extent of his return was unstated, so it's entirely possible that he might only appear in the film briefly. The report also says Warner Bros. had no comment on the story, and Kinnaman's representatives have not yet responded. As such, it's entirely possible that this prospective return won't actually happen. This also contradicts a report from last month, which claimed Kinnaman would not return. However, it's entirely possible that the film has changed enough since then to once again warrant Flag's inclusion.
