It’s known that Tom Hardy has dropped out of playing Rick Flagg in David Ayer’s Suicide Squad back in mid-January. There’s a rumor saying that he left because of the script, but other sources say it’s scheduling conflict.

Now according to EW, we have an actor who is a contender to play the character, and that is Joel Kinnaman (Robocop remake). He’s in early talks right now, but he may be the one to play the leader of the team comprised of DC’s villains.

The film stars Will Smith as Deadshot, Margot Robbie as Harley Quinn, Jared Leto as the Joker, and Jai Courtney as Boomerang.

Before this report, Joel Edgerton (Exodus: Gods and Kings) and Jon Bernthal (The Walking Dead) were being eyed for the Rick Flagg role.
