Who’s Not Returning For ‘Suicide Squad 2’?

When production for Suicide Squad 2 begins later this fall in Atlanta, one member of the DC Comics supervillain team will be missing in action.

Variety reports a certain cast member has exited the sequel. And it’s one of the film’s biggest stars- Will Smith who plays Deadshot. Rumor has it, his amicable exit was due to scheduling conflicts.

The publication reports that “though the studio has never confirmed who would be returning for “The Suicide Squad,” insiders say the studio has always wanted its biggest stars like Smith and Margot Robbie, who played Harley Quinn in the first pic, to return while figuring out other casting decisions along the way.”

On the docket for Smith are the live-action Aladdin remake, Bad Boys For Life, Spies in Disguise and Gemini Man.

Suicide Squad 2 is scheduled to arrive Aug. 6, 2021.
