Will Smith had to bow out of the project due to scheduling conflicts. Warner Bros. reportedly rushed to find another proven and well-known actor to replace Will as production is set to start in September.

Idris Elba was recently cast as the main villain in the ‘Fast & Furious’ spinoff, ‘Hobbs & Shaw’.

‘Suicide Squad 2’ will be directed by former Guardians of the Galaxy director, James Gunn. It will also serve as a reboot, as it will feature a whole new different crew of supervillains apart from Harley Quinn, Deadshot, and Amanda Waller.


‘Suicide Squad 2’ is set for an Aug 6, 2021 release date.
