WB is Looking For a Replacement of Will Smith’s Deadshot in ‘The Suicide Squad’

We all have heard that Will Smith has said goodbye to his role of Deadshot in James Gunn’s The Suicide Squad which left his fans really sad because they really liked him portraying this character. And honestly, he was one of the very few good things about the first Suicide Squad movie, so it’s actually hard to think of someone else who can do a better job than Will Smith when it comes to Deadshot.

Recently, according to a report from Variety, Warner Bros. is contemplating at this point whether they should leave the character of Deadshot behind, with the departure of Will Smith in the history books or they should start the hunt to find the name who can lead the character to even greater heights? Well, the following news was reported by a Journalist named Justin Kroll who tweeted,

“One item I forgot to add to story, sources say execs are now deciding whether they will recast the role or replace Deadshot with a different character from the DC universe to join the team in the sequel.”

There are a lot of fans out there who are still dreaming for Will Smith’s return as Deadshot. But, we all know the harsh reality somewhere deep inside our hearts that Smith is gone and there’s no chance that we’ll see him in DC‘s The Suicide Squad. Well, we all know that the first Suicide Squad which came back in 2016 was a hit at the box office as it collected a sum of $746 million worldwide but it was the critical response of the movie which was far less promising and least impressive.

But, there were two characters who were the highlights of this movie and they were none other than Will Smith’s Deadshot and Margot Robbie’s Harley Quinn. But still, we are going to have another Suicide Squad movie hopefully in 2021, if all things go according to James Gunn’s plans as he is going to write and direct The Suicide Squad.
