Well, the rumor train is circulating once again as it is being reported that Idris Elba’s character in SUICIDE SQUAD 2 may have been revealed. Elba had boarded the sequel with the intent of taking over Deadshot from Will Smith who was unable to return due to scheduling conflicts but then that was changed as the door was left open for Smith’s return in future installments. So it was then deemed that Elba will play a brand new character.
According to comicbookmovie.com, Elba’s role might be that of Bronze Tiger who was rececntly played on the small screen by Michael Jai White on The CW’s ARROW. Bronze Tiger was originally a member of the League of Assassins before he joined Task Force X. He is also an elite martial arts figher who has a lot oif history with Deathstroke.
It’s important to say that nothing is confirmed as of yet but hopefully, details will drop very soon. The DC movie universe is in a state of flux to say the least with this sequel being a soft reboot to the original. Warner Bros. is also doing stand alone films that aren’t connected to the DCEU like JOKER with Joaquin Phoenix and THE BATMAN which just cast Robert Pattinson as the Capoed Crusader.
Elba will be seen next taking on The Rock and Jason Statham when HOBBS AND SHAW hits theaters mon August 2nd.
