David Ayer’s Suicide Squad is live-streaming its red-carpet premere in New York City on Monday, just five days ahead of its release in time for Warner Bros. The film also comes off of earlier rumblings back in March of a possible sequel that Ayer himself may direct once he wraps his forthcoming reunion with Suicide Squad co-lead, actor Will Smith for Netflix’s sci-fi cop thriller, Bright.
With that in mind, Suicide Squad is the talk of the town this week with word from Variety‘s latest interview with actor Joel Kinnaman on whether or not he would join the sequel or other DC Comics movies. “We’ll see. Maybe we’ll make more ‘Suicide Squad’ movies. Who knows? The audience will decide.” says Kinnaman. “If there’s like military involved in one of the other films than maybe they’ll call me. You can definitely see how Amanda Waller has a place in the other films. Maybe I’ll tag along with her.”
Kinnaman plays the role of Rick Flagg, the reluctant leader of the titular team of bad guys assembled by Waller, played by actress Viola Davis. Also starring are Margot Robbie, Jai Courtney, Cara Delevingne, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje, Karen Fukuhara, Jay Hernandez, Adam Beach and Jared Leto. Follow the film on Twitter where you can view the live stream, also produced by Buzzfeed, in the following player. The final trailer from last month’s Comic-Con is just beneath.
