Will Smith will not reprise his role as Deadshot in Warner Bros. “Suicide Squad 2.”
According to reports, Smith’s exit was amicable as he wasn’t officially available to do the sequel due to a tight schedule.
James Gunn, the director of the movie is now looking to start production in Atlanta in September. No cast is set as of yet, but the plan here is to, of course, have Margot Robbie return in the signature role of Harley Quinn. She’s already reprising the Joker’s girlfriend in Cathy Yan’s “Birds of Prey” which is slated to open on Feb. 7, 2020.
The release date for the sequel is Aug. 6, 2021. The first movie grossed $746.8M worldwide, 44 per cent of that made in U.S./Canada.
