DIGITALSPY.COM – Joel Kinnaman has promised that DC Comics film Suicide Squad will be a complex exploration of heroism.

Kinnaman confirmed this week that he will join director David Ayer’s super-villain team-up film, along with Will Smith, Jared Leto and Margot Robbie.

The actor has been widely tipped to be replacing Tom Hardy as Rick Flag Jr, who leads a team of super-villains on a government-mandated mission of redemption.

Earlier this week, Kinnaman told Screen Rant that he has been very impressed with director Ayer’s vision for the comic book adaptation.

“I love the script. It’s super entertaining and David Ayer is a really interesting director,” he explained. “You know there’s a lot of flashy directors who are good with the camera.

“When you get people who are from another aspect of filmmaking into a director’s role, you’re always very happy if it’s a writer or an editor, because those are the storytellers, and David is really a storyteller. Even though this is a massive superhero production it’s an amazing story.”

He continued: “The conversations we’ve had about the characters are really interesting, and he really gets to the bottom of things.

“Sometimes you’re worried, if you’re going to do a film like that, that it’s just going to be superhero fun but nothing’s going to go under the surface. But here I feel like we can get both.”

Rick Flag made his debut in the pages of DC Comics in 1959 as a special forces expert whose father led the first incarnation of the Suicide Squad in World War II.

Ted Whittall previously portrayed the character in the final season of Smallville.

Suicide Squad features Cara Delevingne as Enchantress, and Viola Davis as government operative Amanda Waller.

It has been reported that Joe Manganiello could play the masked villain Deathstroke as well.

The movie will open in cinemas on August 5, 2016, following the release of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice on March 25, 2016.
