Suicide Squad Joel Kinnaman


“Robocop” star Joel Kinnaman was quoted saying that his character Rick Flag is “the highest-level operator working for the government”.

He added:

He’s had lots of friends die and has killed many, many people… Deadshot gives him the most problems. Harley is easily distracted, but up for following orders if it means destroying things.

Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje is portraying Killer Croc in the film and he described his character as “a cannibal with rage issues”. But he explained, “Although he only eats the most talented people. He’s picky.

Jay Hernandez also opened up about his character Diablo in the pages. “Most of these guys are happy to get out there and kill people, but he just wants to stay out of the fight,” he said.

Terminator: Genisys” actor Jai Courtney is starring in this movie as Captain Boomerang, whom he described to be “an absolute bogan, in the purest sense“.

He said:

Dave’s first instruction was “Find your inner s**tbag.”


Adam Beach and Karen Fukuhara are playing Slipknot and Katana respectively.

Beach told Empire Magazine that his character is a “formidable” character who “can climb anything” and “hands people for a living”. “I joke that he was caught strangling Wonder Woman,” Beach added.

As for Katana, Fukuhara said, “She has morals and codes. She can also slice through hundreds of people without taking a breath.

Suicide Squad

After releasing the covers that featured Jared Leto‘s The Joker and Cara Delevingne‘s Enchantress, Empire Magazine released another set of covers featuring Will Smith as Deadshot and Margot Robbie as Harley Quinn.

Speaking with Empire about Deadshot, Smith said, “On Bad Boys I trained in Miami with special-ops guys, but this is a whole other level.” He further hinted at a possible love interest for his character in the film and how it served as a potentially dangerous love triangle between himself, Harley, and the Joker.

He said:

Deadshot’s actually eyeballing (Harley) a little bit. There’s a pretty ragged romantic triangle there.

Robbie also briefly spoke to Empire about her character’s unique aesthetic and fashion for the film.

She said:

When I got the role I started looking up Harley costumes online, with my mum sitting next to me, she was like, “My daughter is going to dress like a prostitute!”

There are a lot of angry mothers out there!” she added.

Based on the original DC Comic of the same name, “Suicide Squad” centres on a group of supervillains who find themselves going on a most unlikely mission for a shot at redemption. However, the mission will probably kill them all.
