Another member of the old "Suicide Squad" is signing up for the new one.

Joel Kinnaman, who played Rick Flag in the 2016 villains team-up, is seemingly reprising his role in James Gunn's upcoming reboot/sequel.

On Instagram, Kinnaman posted a photo of himself at a gun range next to bags of bullets.  "Easing into that squad preppppp," he wrote in the caption.



While that isn't official confirmation, Kinnaman's sly use of the word "squad" and his location at a gun range hint heavily that he's returning as Rick Flag, the leader of Task Force X, the team of criminals assembled by the government to save the world.

Kinnaman is just the latest 2016 "Suicide Squad" member to sign on for Gunn's new take. Also returning are Margot Robbie as Harley Quinn, Jai Courtney as Captain Boomerang, and Viola Davis as Amanda Waller.

New faces joining the team include Idris Elba (not replacing Will Smith as Deadshot, though), Daniela Melchior as Ratcatcher, David Dastmalchian as as Polka-Dot Man, and possibly John Cena. 

The new "Suicide Squad" opens in theaters August 6, 2021.
