Idris Elba in talks to Replace Will Smith as Deadshot.

David Ayer's Suicide Squad ushered in a full movie that featured and circled around some of DC comics most known and powerful minor villains. The film that was released in 2016 featured Diablo, Killer Crock, Harley Quinn, Rick Flag, Captain Boomerang, Katana and a few others was a box office hit that ranked in $746M on a $175m budget. The film also featured stars like Margot Robbie, Jared Leto, Cara Delavigne, Jai Courtney, Jay Hernandez, Viola Davis, Adewale Akinnuoye-Abjabe, Karen Fukuhara and Ben Affleck as Batman with so many others.

After the success of the first film, Warner Bros decided to announce they would be featuring a sequel to the movie. Sometime after this announcement, it was revealed that Harley Quinn would not be in the film so that means Margot Robbie wouldn't not be portraying her in the sequel even though she will be playing her in the upcoming Bird's of Prey film.

Just a week ago, actor Will Smith revealed that he would not be returning as Deadshot either due to scheduling conflicts. Now it has been revealed that even though Smith will not be returning as Deadshot, the studios are in talks with another extremely exceptional actor to take his place.

James Gunn is supposed to direct Suicide Squad 2 and it was revealed that both Gunn and Warner Bros have their eyes set on actor Idris Elba who is in talks to take Smith's place as the character Deadshot.

THR broke the news about Idris Elba joining the group, which they said Elba met with both Gunn and Warner Bros last week.  THR also says that Warner’s loves Gunn’s script for the sequel, which is officially called The Suicide Squad. Many fans liked Smith's performance of Deadshot on the film and some are sad that he is being replaced. Others think that Elba would be a great edition to the team.

Well, Bosslogic also gave a look at how Idris may look as Deadshot and it is stunning.
