Idris Elba is legit one of the most attractive men in the world.
And now, he’s going to be lending those incredibly attractive (and talented) skills to the DC Comic Book universe…

According to the Hollywood Reporter, People’s Sexiest Man Alive is in talks to join James Gunn’s upcoming Suicide Squad 2.
And he’ll be replacing Will Smith as Deadshot.
Apparently, he was James Gunn’s first and only choice for the roll…
Since talks went so well, he’s a sure-shot (hehehe) for the role.
Will Smith dropped out of the role late last year due to scheduling conflicts.
Which was a shame, honestly, because he was probably one of the better things about that trainwreck of a movie.
Ditto for Margot Robbie’s incredible Harley Quinn.
But Smith’s exit leaves the door wide open for Elba.
And nobody’s complaining.
Suicide Squad 2 is expected to release August 2021
