Margot Robbie didn’t audition for Suicide Squad, says it’s more Dark Knight than The Avengers

27 February 2015 4:10 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

With production on David Ayer’s Suicide Squad set to begin in April, we will be hearing a lot from the cast members involved over the next few months. We’ve heard from Margot Robbie (The Wolf of Wall Street) on several occasions over the past couple of weeks while she is on the promotional tour for Focus (read our review here) and we’ve now got some more insights from her on the role.

“I actually got offered this one, I didn’t audition, which is a real step up as an actor when you can get offered things,” she told MTV News before adding that she, “didn’t have to do chemistry reads or anything like that.”

Robbie, who is signed on to play Harley Quinn for the next ten years, was also asked about the tone of the movie.

“I think on a scale of like, The Dark Knight »

Michael Keaton: his 10 greatest screen characters

24 February 2015 6:48 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

From Batman to Birdman and everything in between, we take a look at Michael Keaton's top 10 most memorable roles...

Sometimes, the Oscars have a tendency of giving out awards to actors who are seen to have paid their dues, perhaps not for the best performance of that year or even for the particular actor's own best performance, but to recognise past work. Michael Keaton is not the most likely of these, but this could be why some speculated that he was an early favourite for this year's Best Actor award, for his performance in Birdman.

The later frontrunner Eddie Redmayne rightfully and very graciously wound up taking it home for his work as Stephen Hawking in The Theory Of Everything, though Birdman went on to take home the main prize for Best Picture and a number of other major awards.

It would hardly have been a major upset if »

Margot Robbie says she is signed to play Harley Quinn for “10 years”

24 February 2015 2:25 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Since the cast was announced for David Ayer’s Suicide Squad, it was presumed by everyone (based on the current movie business landscape) that Margot Robbie would be signed to a multi-picture deal to play Harley Quinn.

“Yeah, that’s daunting”, she said to Az Central about playing the same role for the foresable future. “You don’t need to have commitment issues to be frightened by the fact that you might have just signed 10 years of your life away”.

This isn’t an uncommon response. Chris Evans said the same thing when he signed up for Captain America back in 2010, saying the decision to sign a multi-picture deal could backfire on him (it clearly hasn’t).

“With [Harley Quinn], it’s a character I don’t think would ever get boring. Ever,” Robbie added. “So if they did Suicide Squad one, two and three I would be over the moon about »

Jared Leto talks gaining weight to play “Shakespearean” Joker, calls him a “beautiful disaster”

20 February 2015 1:18 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Next August, Jared Leto is set to join Cesar Romero, Jack Nicholson and Heath Ledger in playing the iconic villain role of The Joker in David Ayer’s Suicide Squad. In an interview with Billboard, the 30 Seconds to Mars star and Oscar winner talked about gaining weight in preparation for the role.

“Do you mind if I eat a little?” Leto asked during the interview before diving into his vegan tacos. “I’m trying to gain a lot of weight. It means I have to eat every couple of hours and I’m terrible at eating a lot.”

Hardly the fattiest of foods on the market, but what attracted Leto to the role in the first place?

“The opportunity to take on this nearly Shakespearean character – that’s what graphic novels and comic books are becoming, right?” Leto says. “[He’s] this beautiful disaster of a character. What a big challenge.”

Jay Hernandez joins Suicide Squad in mystery role, rumours suggest El Diablo

19 February 2015 1:28 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

As it gears up for its Spring shoot, Warner Bros.’ DC supervillain ensemble Suicide Squad has added another actor to its cast, with The Wrap reporting that Jay Hernandez (Friday Night Lights, Hostel) has signed on for a mystery role, which may possibly be The Joker’s cellmate.

According to Latino-Review, Hernandez will play “Chato Santana aka El Diablo. It is a small role, no more than a cameo in the film. He is a prisoner being held in the super powered criminal part of the prison with (rumored) Killer Frost, Block Buster, King Shark, & Live Wire amongst others.”

Hernandez joins a cast that includes Joel Kinnaman (RoboCop) as Rick Flagg, Will Smith (Hancock) as Deadshot, Jai Courtney (Terminator: Genisys) as Captain Boomerang, Margot Robbie (The Wolf of Wall Street) as Harley Quinn, Jared Leto (Dallas Buyers Club) as The Joker and Viola Davis (How to get Away with Murder) as Amanda Waller. »

Joel Kinnaman Replaces Tom Hardy In Suicide Squad

16 February 2015 10:03 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Even with the eclectic cast for what seems to be Warner Bros. bravest chapter in the DC Cinematic Universe, there was still a space in David Ayer’s Suicide Squad for the role of Rick Flagg, the leader of the popular team of anti-heroes that are set for the debut do-or-die mission next year.

Heading through some rather choppy waters for the past month or so with Tom Hardy originally in and then out of the role, before being briefly looked over by Jake Gyllenhaal, The Wrap reports that the studio have finally settled on someone to raise the Flagg – The Killing and Robocop star, Joel Kinnaman.

Though there’s no solid confirmation from the studio, the trade has revealed that things are pretty much set for Kinnaman to join the team which already has some impressive talent on board. Consisting of the high-calibre cast members like Focus stars Will Smith »

Suicide Squad: Joel Kinnaman to replace Tom Hardy

15 February 2015 10:46 PM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Need a new Rick Flagg for the Suicide Squad movie? Why not give RoboCop a call...

Writer and director David Ayer may finally have his assembled cast in place for his DC Comics adaptation, Suicide Squad.

The film had looked pretty locked down, with the announced cast being Will Smith, Margot Robbie, Tom Hardy, Jai Courtney, Cara Delevigne and Jared Leto all on board. Then, as you more than likely know, Hardy exited the project.

He'd been set to play Rick Flagg in the movie. Initial reports suggested that Hardy wasn't too keen on the size of the role when he got hold of the script. However, the official reason is Hardy's schedule. He's shooting The Revenant, and has Mad Max: Fury Road to promote. He is going to be rather busy these coming months.

No matter, for the new Rick Flagg has been found. It's not Jake Gyllenhaal, although »

Joel Kinnaman In Talks For Suicide Squad

15 February 2015 8:41 AM, PST | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

Depending on which source you believe, Tom Hardy dropped out of the Warner Bros./DC Suicide Squad because of scheduling clashes or because he wasn’t sure of the script. Still, director David Ayer hasn’t wasted much time finding a replacement, with RoboCop’s Joel Kinnaman in early talks to take over the Rick Flagg role. “Early talks”, of course, means there’s no guarantee that he’ll definitely end up with the role. But with shooting set to kick off shortly, Ayer will want to act quickly to seal his main line-up after Jake Gyllenhaal passed on the job.The film, which finds a group of DC Comics villains and anti-heroes including Deadshot (Will Smith), The Joker (Jared Leto), Boomerang (Jai Courtney), Harley Quinn (Margot Robbie) and Enchantress (Cara Delevingne) rounded up to go on hazardous missions for the Us government, is set to be Warners’ follow-up to »

'RoboCop' Star Joel Kinnaman Touted to Replace Tom Hardy in DC's 'Suicide Squad'

13 February 2015 5:26 PM, PST | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

From RoboCop to... supervillain? According to several sources, including Latino Review and The Wrap, RoboCop star Joel Kinnaman is in talks to replace Tom Hardy in DC's upcoming supervillain-stacked Suicide Squad. If negotiations with the actor are successful, Kinnaman will play Rick Flagg, the reluctant leader of the group comprised of nefarious supervillains assembled to take on secret suicide missions for the United States government. The film, which is part of a new era of DC Comics-based movies (including Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and Justice League) will also star Will Smith (Deadshot), Margot Robbie (Harley Quinn), Jai Courtney (Captain Boomerang), Cara Delevigne (Enchantress) and Jared Leto (Joker).

Hot Rumor: Joel Kinnaman Frontrunner To Play Rick Flagg In 'Suicide Squad'

13 February 2015 2:00 PM, PST | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

Update: Both The Wrap & The Hollywood Reporter confirming it has progressed to early talk stages.

With pre-production scheduled to begin this month at Toronto's Pinewood Studios, who is going play Rick Flagg in Suicide Squad? The movie starts shooting this April so they're under a pressure cooker to find their guy for David Ayer's Dirty Dozen with supervillains movie based on the DC Comic.

Sources told me that this was the week they would make a decision on an actor and I think they found their man. Earlier, there were buzz among sources of Jason Clarke, but that never panned out.

Now I got a legit tip this morning from a source that Joel Kinnaman, the actor who played Robocop last year in the reboot is going to be the guy after giving a strong audition.

Kinnaman would join a cast that includes Will Smith as the masked assassin Deadshot, »

Joel Kinnaman Will Reportedly Replace Tom Hardy in 'Suicide Squad'

13 February 2015 1:15 PM, PST | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Once upon a time, a man named Tom Hardy was cast to play a character known as Rick Flagg in a movie called Suicide Squad, an antihero team-up of incarcerated supervillains announced as part of DC Comics newly-anointed "Cinematic Multiverse". I'm assuming you knew this. Then, about a month ago, news hit the web that Hardy had dropped out of the project, and Warner Bros. was eyeing Jake Gyllenhaal to take on the role, but a deal never came to fruition. I'm assuming you knew this as well. Cutting to the chase now, The Wrap is reporting Warners has found their replacement for Hardy in RoboCop star Joel Kinnaman, though the studio has yet to confirm the news. However, if The Wrap is correct, Kinnaman will join a cast that includes Jared Leto, Will Smith, and Margot Robbie -- and potentially Viola Davis and Jesse Eisenberg -- in a film »

Joel Kinnaman Likely to Play Rick Flagg in Suicide Squad

13 February 2015 12:34 PM, PST | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

Last month we learned that Tom Hardy had dropped out of Suicide Squad, and rumors have swirled as to who Warner Bros. might bring in to replace him.  Word has come in today that Joel Kinnaman is the frontrunner to take on the role of Rick Flagg!  Come inside to learnd more!

Suicide Squad is already heavy into pre-production, and director David Ayer has been providing fans with constant teases on his twitter (a neat thing to see considering how secretive so many film projects seem to be lately).  The role of Rick Flagg has been vacant since Tom Hardy dropped out, but with filming set to begin in April, they're obviously in a hurry to fill it.  Latino Review (backed up by THR and The Wrap) is reporting that Joel Kinnaman is in talks to bring the character to life.

Joel Kinnaman Replacing Tom Hardy as Rick Flagg in 'Suicide Squad'

13 February 2015 12:11 PM, PST | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

Last month, we heard the unfortunate news that Tom Hardy had walked away from Suicide Squad. Scheduling conflicts were cited, but word on the street is that Hardy became part of the project without seeing a script, and once the project started moving along, he wasn't interested in where things were headed. When Hardy left, there were rumblings that Jake Gyllenhaal may take over the role, which would have been great. But instead, The Wrap reports we've been downgraded severely with RoboCop remake star Joel Kinnaman playing Rick Flagg, the leader of the group of supervillains hired for dangerous missions. Kinnaman isn't a terrible actor, but going from Tom Hardy to "The Killing" star just makes this comic book flick far less exciting, especially with bland actor Jai Courtney on board too. But at least Will Smith and Margot Robbie are still on board, and hopefully Jared Leto will give »

Joel Kinnaman Replaces Tom Hardy In ‘Suicide Squad’

13 February 2015 11:47 AM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Breaking: Robocop star Joel Kinnaman has replaced Tom Hardy as Rick Flagg in Suicide Squad, which will be directed by David Ayer. Hardy dropped out of the DC Comics adaptation a couple of weeks ago due to scheduling conflicts with Alejandro González Iñárritu’s The Revenant and duties on the Mad Max: Fury Road press tour.

Kinnaman is best known for his work in the Robocop remake from last year, but his body of work is vast with sensational work on other projects such as The Killing, The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo and the Easy Money trilogy.

Kinnaman joins an impressive cast in Suicide Squad, with Will Smith appearing as Deadshot, Margot Robbie as Harley Quinn, Jai Courtney as Boomerang, Cara Delevingne as Enchantress, and Jared Leto as the Joker.

Shooting kicks off soon for an August 5, 2016 release.

Joel Kinnaman To Replace Tom Hardy In Suicide Squad As Rick Flag

13 February 2015 11:38 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

After what amounted to a bit of an extensive search over the past month, the trades are now reporting that Joel Kinnaman has replaced Tom Hardy in Suicide Squad. The RoboCop and The Killing star will play Rick Flag, the leader of the titular supervillain team working for Viola Davis’ Amanda Waller.

Hardy exited the highly-anticipated project last month due to scheduling conflicts with his next project, Birdman director Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu’s The Revenant, as well as promotional obligations for Mad Max: Fury Road. After he vacated the role, rumors began to swirl that Jake Gyllenhaal, Jon Bernthal and Joel Edgerton were in contention.

Kinnaman may not be as big a star as someone like Hardy or Gyllenhaal, but I think he’s a great choice for Rick Flag. He displayed a tremendous amount of range in The Killing, and proved that he could handle a leading role in last year’s RoboCop. »
