We received a new Deadshot. After Will Smith confirmed that he would not return to DCEU in Suicide Squad 2 Warner Bros has booked Idris Elba for the character's role, Variety reports.
2016 Suicide Squad The result of the misadventures of a Supervillain Labt team was a slump at the box office, which raised more than $ 746 million worldwide. Little is known about the sequel, except that James Gunn will write and direct after jumping from Marvel Studios. Margot Robbie is expected to return to the squad as Harley Quinn and play in the split-off of 2020 Birds of Prey .
Due to planning conflicts, Smith could not repeat the role of assassin Deadshot. He is currently filming Bad Boys For Life  and then teamed up to play Richard Williams, the father of Venus and Serena, in the biopic King Richard (19459010). According to The Hollywood Reporter, Idris Elba was "the first and only choice" to replace Smith.
This will not be Elba's first foray into comic books. He played the Asgardian Heimdall in the trilogy Thor of Marvel Studios and briefly appeared in Avengers: Infinity War – though his scene will end, it is unlikely that we will see him MCU will return in the foreseeable future, which will set him free to walk across the aisle and play a DC character.
Suicide Squad 2 currently has a release date of August 6, 2021. Meanwhile, Elba will star in the Netflix comedy series Turn Up Charlie from March 15th while on May 24, Smith will bring "a hip-hop flair" to Genie in Disney's remake of Aladdin .
