Idris Elba, who plays Heimdall in Marvel Cinematic Universe has been added to the cast of James Gunn’s The Suicide Squad months ago. He was about to play Deadshot but would be playing Deathstroke instead.
Idris Elba was casted to play a character in James Gunn’s The Suicide Squad Reboot. Many rumors were roaming around that he would be playing Deadshot in The Suicide Squad. Elba would be replacing Will Smith for Deadshot. But some sources says that’s not true.
He is going to play Deathstroke in The Suicide Squad. Joe Manganiello has played this role in the cameo of Deathstroke teaming up with Lex Luthor in Justice League. This was said to be DC Universe’s Biggest Failure.
Joe Manganiello has played Flash Thompson in Tobey Maguire’s Spiderman. Deathstroke is the most dangerous villain of Batman and is really great at hand to hand combat. He has an ability to know his instant future (30 secs forward). Which makes it difficult for anyone to defeat him.
Will Smith really did a great job with playing Deadshot in The Suicide Squad. He was really into the character. This is just a rumor that He would be playing Deathstroke instead of Deadshot. I’ll confirm the news when it’s confirmed.
