-Joel Kinnaman who plays Rick Flag in The Suicide Squad reveals that he almost didnt make the final cut of the movie.
-By the time production began on the sequel that is not a sequel, he was filming Apple+s series For All Mandkind and it conflicted with the shooting dates for TSS.
-WB and Apple+ played nice with one another and worked out a schedule that would accommodate both productions.
-He treated Rick Flag as a brand new character in TSS and didnt bring over anything except his lewks from SS to TSS
-Reveals that while SS was great bts, they did go through constant rewrites/changes to the film as they were shooting compared to TSS which remained very close to the script and vision that they intended it to be.
-In true DCEU fashion James Gunn revealed that he didnt know anything about Birds of Prey: The Emancipation of one Harley Quinn (my fingers are exhausted typing that title) or that it even existed when he wrote and shot TSS.
