Suicide Squad video interview- Joel Kinnaman is Rick Flag

We've spent a lot of time talking about the team of supervillains who make up the Suicide Squad of the upcoming DC film but there's more going on, including those who aren't quite so villainous.

Joel Kinnaman's Rick Flag is one of that number. He's a very special soldier with a huge amount of training who is more or less operating on the side of law and order. He's tasked by Viola Davis' Amanda Waller with keeping the Squad in check, and that means going into some seriously dangerous territory.

Here's an interview with Kinnaman where he talks about the character and how he works together with Waller, as well as getting into the tone of the new film.

It sounds like Flag is going to be plenty busy in this film and if it proves to be a hit we could be seeing more of Kinnaman's character. Who knows with his military expertise he might even show up in future DC movies to give a helping hand to the side of good.

Suicide Squad is in Irish cinemas on the 5th of August, 2016.
