The Skwad is back together! Sort of. Joel Kinnaman posted a selfie of him and Suicide Squad co-stars Jai Courtney and Jay Hernandez working out in a garage gym with their trainer, and apparently Jai pushed himself a little too hard. You can check out the photo below.
Joel Kinnaman, of course, played Rick Flag in Suicide Squad, with Jai Courtney and Jay Hernandez portraying Captain Boomerang and El Diablo, respectively. It’s always a treat when the actors in your favorite movies become friends in real life, and many of the castmembers are on record describing how close the cast became during the shoot, even getting matching “SKWAD” tatoos. There’s no indication in Kinnaman’s post if this was just a casual training session with friends or if they could be preparing for something on the horizon. Perhaps Suicide Squad 2?
Warrior director Gavin O’Connor is set to write and direct Suicide Squad 2. Jared Leto, Margot Robbie, and Will Smith have already been confirmed to be returning for the sequel. Production on the project is expected to begin in October 2018.
Stay tuned to Heroic Hollywood for the latest news on the Suicide Squad sequel and the future of DC Films as we learn it.
