Idris Elba To Replace Will Smith In “Suicide Squad”2 weeks ago by Amber Le in Movie News
Well that was quick. Replacing Will Smith is pretty much an impossible task but Warner Bros and DC Films came as close as they could get, by adding another iconic actor to take on the role of Deadshot in Suicide Squad. James Gunn and company have chosen Idris Elba and they were sure to emphasize that nobody else was considered for the position.
The genre of comic book movies is not foreign to Elba who has also been featured in The Losers, Thor and Avengers. This year alone is a big year for the Britist actor who will be making appearances in Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw, Mad Max, Three Thousand Years of Longing and Turn Up Charlie (available on Netflix).
