Last week Will Smith announced that he would not be appearing in the upcoming 'Suicide Squad' sequel as Deadshot - but movie makers seemingly already have his replacement lined up - Idris Elba!

"I hope so. I love playing Deadshot. I've really enjoyed that character," Smith said back in September to ScreenRant. 

"They've been talking about it, so if a good idea comes around... we've been having meetings. But I'd love to. I love Deadshot."

Despite being panned by critics (mainly over Jared Leto's portrayal of The Joker) the original 'Suicide Squad grossed $746 million in theaters worldwide. It is assumed that Margot Robbie will return as Harley Quinn.
