Will Smith can not reprise his role as ‘Deadshot’ due to a scheduling conflict. Suicide Squad grossed $746 million worldwide. The release date for Suicide Squad 2 is August 6, 2021.
Idris Elba is hosting SNL this weekend with musical guest, Khalid. He will also star in the Fast and the Furious spinoff, Hobbs and Shaw alongside Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson and Jason Statham.
