IDRIS ELBA REPLACES WILL SMITH’S ROLE AS DEADSHOT IN ‘SUICIDE SQUAD’ SEQUELMarch 8, 2019
We’re super sad to hear Will Smith quit the Suicide Squad sequel, but we’re also not too mad about his replacement. ‘Sexiest Man Alive’ Idris Elba will take on Will’s role as Deadshot in the much-anticipated sequel, and saying how much we’re here for it is definitely an understatement.
Will, who’s currently filming Bad Boys 3 alongside Martin Lawrence, had to put Deadshot to rest due to scheduling conflicts. Although it’s unconfirmed which of Deadshot’s deadly partners-in-crime will be returning for the sequel, it’s production is slated for September with an August 6, 2021 release date. What do you think of Idris Elba joining the Suicide Squad?
