Suicide Squad 2 Idris Elba to Reportedly Replace Will Smith as Deadshot

Instead, it looks as though someone else will shoulder the character's rifle, as Idris Elba is now in line to replace the departing Smith.

According to their source, Idris was the only choice director James Gunn and Warner Bros has in mind and so, are excited to get him onboard for the film.

Smith's absence boils down to scheduling conflicts, according to Variety.

The Suicide Squad has an August 6, 2021 release date and is said to start filming later this year. The wheels have been moving fast on the sequel ever since Gunn signed on to write and direct in October, with the filmmaker quickly turning around drafts of the script and already moving into the casting phase.

Smith - who dropped out of the project due to production scheduling conflicts, Variety reports - led the cast of the first Suicide Squad alongside Margot Robbie, who is now expected to reprise her role as Harley Quinnin the forthcoming follow-up.

The 2016 original, which also starred Margo Robbie and Jared Leto, was a massive box office hit, grossing $746 million worldwide on a $175 million dollar budget before promotion.

Robbie will reportedly return as Harley Quinn in the sequel.

The Suicide Squad is one of many projects now being developed by Warner Bros. and DC.

Not much is known about the associated cast of the sequel; it's strongly believed Margot Robbie will return as Harley Quinn in the film, given the standalone film she's now filming. The actor is set to host Saturday Night Live this weekend.
