Fans should expect Suicide Squad 2 to be "more grounded" than Warner Bros.' hit 2016 original, according to star Joel Kinnaman.
"I think that, when we do a second one, I wouldn't be surprised if we see more of a grounded version of the film," Kinnaman, who plays Colonel Rick Flag, told Yahoo Movies. "I think the characters are so extreme, so I think it could be more effective if we were seeing them with maybe less sorcery. I think that the characters become more extreme if you see them in conjunction with more real people."
Kinnaman also addressed where he thought the first movie, which both critics and audiences received poorly, went wrong. "In the third act," he bluntly replied. Despite its negative reception, Suicide Squad grossed more than $740 million at the worldwide box office, and earned an Academy Award for Best Makeup and Hairstyling.
Kinnaman is expected to be joined in Suicide Squad 2 by returning stars Margot Robbie as Harley Quinn, Will Smith as Deadshot, Jared Leto as The Joker and Viola Davis as Amanda Waller, among others.
No release date has been announced for Suicide Squad 2, but the film is expected to go into production this fall.
