Just when I thought this week couldn’t get any better, some badass news drops that totally blows my freaking mind! THR has revealed that Idris Elba recently met with director James Gunn to discuss taking over Will Smith’s Deadshot role in Warner Bros’ upcoming Suicide Squad sequel. Well, apparently that meeting went great and as of right now, Elba is in final negotiations to be the new Deadshot.
Every since Guardians of the Galaxy director James Gunn was officially announced as the director for this sequel, anticipation has went from an all-time low to now an all-time high for Warner Bros. and DC’s “cinematic” universe.
With Margot Robbie currently finishing up touches on her Harley Quinn/Birds of Prey film, it is pretty much assumed she will be reprising that role again for this project. However, there is still no official word. No other cast members previous or new have been announced either. So we’ll just have to wait and see on those.
Stay tuned for my breaking news on Suicide Squad 2.
