Idris Elba To Replace Will Smith In The Suicide Squad

A week ago it was reported that Will Smith would not reprise his role as Deadshot in Warner Bros. and DC Films The Suicide Squad. Now Director James Gunn and the studio have selected Idris Elba (Pacific Rim, Star Trek Beyond) to replace Smith as the expert assassin.

Margot Robbie will skip this sequel as well.

Former Guardians of the Galaxy director James  Gunn will write and direct The Suicide Squad, which will act as a soft reboot for the franchise. Deadshot is one of the key characters on the comic book team. However, Deadshot made his debut as a Batman villain before joining the Suicide Squad. He was also featured in The Secret Six, and headlined a few solo adventures.

Warner Bros. has scheduled The Suicide Squad for August 6, 2021.
