Will Smith Could Return As Deadshot In The Batman


When Will Smith signed on for Suicide Squad to play Deadshot, he was apparently pretty excited about DC’s plans for their cinematic universe. So excited, in fact, that he agreed to show up multiple times as the character, instead of only just appearing in David Ayer’s 2016 film.

Of course, a potential Suicide Squad sequel would seem like the most probable place for Deadshot to appear again, but Latino Review is reporting that the actor could also show up in Ben Affleck’s solo Caped Crusader movie, The Batman.

The details aren’t clear just yet, but sources say Deadshot would have a major role in what’s being described as a “The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly” scenario. Essentially, the film would see the two characters teaming up, presumably to take down Red Hood and the Joker, as The Batman is said to an adaptation of the Under the Hood storyline.


This is all just speculation and rumors for now, but if it turns out to be true, then Ben Affleck’s solo Bat film could turn out to be another massive team-up event for Warner Bros., almost like Batman V Superman. Of course, Deadshot isn’t as iconic as the Man of Steel, but having Ben Affleck and Will Smith together in a film, and a DC cinematic universe film no less, would be a pretty huge deal.

We’ll keep you posted when we hear more on this intriguing rumor, but for now, tell us, do you think DC should throw Deadshot into The Batman? Sound off below and let us know.
