Will Smith definitely has his hands full over the next couple of years with a few big projects, including playing Venus and Serena Williams’ father in a biopic. The scheduling conflicts with these films has forced him to bow out of the sequel to Suicide Squad. As you recall, Smith played “Deadshot,” the gun-toting assassin turned anti-hero, with a near superhuman knack for markmanship. Thankfully, an equally cool actor, Idris Elba, is stepping in to take over the role!

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.

It’s currently unknown who will be joining Elba in the sequel, though many believe Margot Robbie will return as Harley Quinn. James Gun was tapped to write and direct the film. The release date is currently set for Aug. 6, 2021.

The original “Suicide Squad” — starring Smith, Jared Leto, Robbie — became a massive box office sensation when it hit theaters in 2016, grossing $746 million worldwide.

Elba is also starring in the upcoming Netflix series “Turn Up Charlie,” which bows this spring. Ahead of “Suicide Squad 2,” he will appear on the big screen for “The Fast and the Furious” spinoff “Hobbs and Shaw” alongside Dwayne Johnson and Jason Statham, as well as Universal and Tom Hooper’s “Cats” adaptation with Taylor Swift, James Corden, and Jennifer Hudson.

Will Smith was great as Deadshot, but Idris definitely comes off as grittier–something any Batman villain needs for a live action portrayal. What do you guys think of this recasting? Sound off in the comments’ section below!

“I went to a good school,” Legend told ET at the iHeartRadio Music Awards Thursday. “I think it’s a longer conversation because I think a lot of people look at this rightly as fraudulent and dishonest.”

“But the bottom line is, the system has been rigged for wealthy people for a long time,” he continued. “The admissions system rewards people’s parents being wealthy and people’s parents having gone to a certain school. There’s a lot of legal ways to do that that still aren’t really that fair to a lot of other people.”

Legend’s very serious and thoughtful remarks on the admissions scam follow his wife’s reaction from a few days earlier; in contrast to her husband, Teigen poked fun at the whole thing by photoshopping their heads onto those of athletes.

It is no secret or surprise to us that the wealthy and elite have been able to go off the radar, or do something illegal, to procure opportunities for their children. Honestly, I am surprised more celebrities were not caught up in this scandal. We are sure this scandal is still unfolding.  We will keep you up to date on the details as they become available!

Suicide is definitely nothing to scoff at and we are just glad to hear from Paris that she is doing well. As for these hecklers trying to get her to answer for her father’s allegations we have to say that the daughter will not suffer for the sins of the father. Whether Michael Jackson molested those young men is truly up to interpretation; and with his demise, it is now a moot point.
