Will Smith loves playing Deadshot, confirms solo movie talks

In late 2016, we heard that a Deadshot movie was in the works for Suicide Squad star Will Smith. In a new interview this week, Smith confirmed that Warner Bros. is “talking about it”.

Smith celebrated his 50th birthday on Tuesday, and bungee jumped out of a helicopter! But before he did, he answered some fan questions. The whole thing was streamed live on his YouTube channel.

One fan asked if there will be a Deadshot movie. “I hope so, I love playing Deadshot,” Smith said. “I really enjoy that character. They’ve been talking about it. If a good idea comes around… we’ve been having meetings. I would love to. I love Deadshot.”

You can check out Smith’s reply in the video below around the 1:45 mark.

Based on Smith’s answer it doesn’t sound like a Deadshot movie is happening anytime soon, if ever, but he certainly would love to do it if the opportunity came along.
