Will Smith will not be in Suicide Squad 2…
But his character, Floyd Lawton / Deadshot, will make a return.
So who will pull on the superhero getup?
None other than Idris Elba. And honestly we can get around this swap.
Smith was no longer available to reprise the role of Deadshot because of scheduling conflicts – filming for Netflix’s ‘Bright’ overlaps with the Suicide Squad filming later in the year.
Suicide Squad also stars Margot Robbie and Jared Leto and was a box office smash in 2016.
The sequel is expected to hit cinemas in 2021.
