Idris Elba Just Replaced Will Smith As Deadshot In 'Suicide Squad 2' + 'She's Gotta Have It' Returns In May!

Idris Elba will be replacing Will Smith as Deadshot in the upcoming Suicide Squad sequel. Get those deets, peep Idris' new "SNL" promo and find out when "She's Gotta Have It" will be returning to Netflix inside...

Will Smith is OUT! And Idris Elba is in!

Due to scheduling conflicts, Will Smith had to back out of reprising his role as Deadshot in the upcoming Suicide Squad sequel. Don't fret. Warner Bros has already picked his replacement and its none other than British hottie Idris Elba.

We're not mad at it.

Production for the upcoming DC Comics film is set to begin in September. According to Variety, James Gunn (Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2) will write and direct the film. As of the time of this post, Suicide Squad 2 is set to hit theaters August 6, 2021.

As of now, it's unclear who will be joining Idris in the sequel. Fans have their fingers crossed Margot Robbie will return as Harley Quinn. No word on if Viola Davis or Jared Leto will return to reprise their roles.

The original Suicide Squad was a total box office takeover, raking in $746 million worldwide.

Nola Darling is BACK!

Season 2 of Spike Lee's seriously sexy comedy "She's Gotta Have It" is coming down the pipeline. He'll be executive producing the series alongside his wife, Tonya Lewis Lee.

"She’s Gotta Have It" Season 2 offers a timely and topical portrait of rising talents, with free-spirited artist Nola Darling (DeWanda Wise) at the center. Struggling with newfound success this season, against a backdrop of black art and culture, Nola must decide if she will remain true to her creative ideals or give in to the corporate world.

 

 

Her journey of self-discovery helps transform the lives of those around her, including friend and sometimes lover Mars Blackmon (Anthony Ramos), who sets out to pursue his true passion of music as well as her inner circle of Opal (Ilfenesh Hadera), Greer Childs (Cleo Anthony), Jamie Overstreet (Lyriq Bent), Clorinda Bradford (Margot Bingham), Shemekka Epps (Chyna Layne) and Winnie Win (Fat Joe). Their journey expands to new destinations this season beyond their home base of Fort Greene, the vibrant Brooklyn enclave, that continues to evolve and change as gentrification remakes the neighborhood.

Get ready. Nine new episodes will be released on May 24, 2019 via Netflix. Free your schedules to binge.
