Will Smith Not Returning to “Suicide Squad”

Will Smith in "Suicide Squad"

Woah, Will Smith, where you going?

According to Variety, the Aladdin actor will not be starring in the Suicide Squad sequel.

The original film came out in 2016, with Smith taking on the role of Deadshot.

With a sequel in the works, it was expected that the 50 year old would return as the assassin who led the film, which also featured various DC villains including The Joker and Harley Quinn.

It appears, however, that Smith will not be joining The Suicide Squad, which will be directed by James Gunn, due to scheduling conflicts.

The film is expected to start production in the fall ahead of a release date of August 6th, 2021, with Smith having at least 3 films — including sequels to Bad Boys and Bright — lined up.

But before Smith fans begin to mourn his absence, they should be reminded of Margot Robbie, who was originally set to not return as Harley Quinn in the Suicide Squad sequel, but now will.
