Will Smith says there’s ‘been talks’ about a Deadshot standalone movie…

September 26th, 2018 by Marc Comments

With the DC movie slate ramping ups again with Aquaman, Wonder Woman 2, Joker, Shazam!, Birds of Prey, Flash, The Batman and more on the horizon, we were wondering if we’d have to wait until Suicide Squad 2 to see Deadshot again – after all, Harley will be in Birds of Prey and it’s a safe bet Capt Boomerang will be in the Flash movie.

But it seems that we may see Deadshot outside of SS2.

Answering fan questions on his YouTube channel, star Will Smith was asked if he’d like to do a Deadshot standalone movie and not only would he, it seems that there’s been some talk of it actually happening!

“I hope so. I love playing Deadshot. I really enjoyed that character. They’ve been talking about it. So if a good idea comes around, we’ve been having meetings. But I would love to. I love Deadshot.”

Hmmmm… we’ve been having meetings?

We’re wondering what sort of meetings, exactly?

Could we see Deadshot in his own movie? Or maybe in The Batman? Birds of Prey? Smith is a pretty big deal in Hollywood so the idea of him filming cameos and bits parts seems unlikely, so outside of frontline Suicide Squad 2, we’d have to image he’d be in his own movie.

Let us know what you all think, gang.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
