Suicide Squad star Joel Kinnamon confirms return for sequel and possible filming date

June 5th, 2017 by Marc Comments

Look, I’m not afraid to admit I really liked Suicide Squad.

Sure, it’s not exactly Shakespeare but it was what i wanted it to be and it had characters i felt i had no right to ever imagine seeing onscreen running all over it.

And, as silly as it was, it was a lot of fun.

And I can’t wait to see the sequel, especially if Mel Gibson is still involved (here).

And now Joel Kinnaman, who played Rick Flag, has been chatting about Suicide Squad 2 and revealed that he’s hoping to return and when it might happen: “As far as I know they’re writing the script and I think the plan is to shoot it sometime in 2018, but that could change. I think I’ll definitely come back for it.”

Kinnaman also talked about his hopes for director of the first movie David Ayer to return to direct, even though Ayer is apparently looking after the Gotham City Sirens movie (here): “Ultimately, I’d love for David Ayer to direct it,” said Kinnaman, “but if he doesn’t want to direct it then someone who is great with character and that’s able to ground the story and maybe put these characters in a more normal situation. It would be really interesting to see these crazy characters interact with regular people as well.”

We certainly admit that the first movie was flawed and that writer/director David Ayer wasn’t given enough time or freedom to make the movie he wanted to make, but we definitely love it nonetheless and would be happy to see Ayer movie on to Sirens while Mel Gibson is left to make Suicide Squad 2…

but who would be the villains… who would be the heroes? Isn’t it exciting?

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
