Idris Elba is in for Suicide squad as DS!

Idris Elba is joining the squad. Sources tell Variety that Elba is Warner Bros. choice to replace Will Smith as Deadshot in the “Suicide Squad” sequel.

Smith had to bow out of the upcoming DC Comics movie due to scheduling conflicts, and the studio moved fast to find another proven A-lister to replace him before production starts in September.

Hmm. Hmm hmm hmm. I actually like this change. He looks more like Deadshot than Smith does, and he would likely do the personality much more justice as well.

Obviously not. But he looks far closer to a black version of Deadshot than Smith does.

Absolutely!   He's just a white guy with a lot of melanin absorption capabilities.  Helps with the cancer prevention factor.  You saw how he nailed Heimdall!  Fairest Asgardians of them all!

Floyd Lawton WAS upper class. He was a rich guy who comitted crimes for kicks.
Of course he was white then, too. :P

Despite a short lived retcon here and there, the born wealthy backstory’s been a constant.

Nope. Let's not write the character out. Let's cast a guy with a completely different feel, style demeanor as the same character for part 2.
