When one fan asked if Deadshot will have his own movie, Will replied: I hope so. I love playing Deadshot. I really enjoyed that character. Theyve been talking about it. So if a good idea comes around, weve been having meetings. But I would love to. I love Deadshot.



It would be so epic.

Suicide Squad 2 is in the early stages of development

Suicide Squad 2 is still in very early production as it is currently without a production start date or confirmed cast. However, its likely that Will and his co-stars Margot Robbie and Jared Leto will return for the next installment as all have expressed their interests in reprising their roles.

Margot, 28, won over audiences with her impeccable portrayal of Harley Quinn, while Jared, 46, had big boots to fill as The Joker following Heath Ledgers iconic performance in Batman movie, The Dark Knight.

The Accountant director Gavin OConnor is currently signed on to direct and write the Suicide Squad sequel, taking over from David Ayer who helmed the first project.

Its not known if the Deadshot movie will come before or after Suicide Squad 2 but Will has plenty to keep himself busy until then. The actor has a slew of films lined-up, including a live-action remake of Aladdin, Gemini Man alongside Mary Elizabeth Winstead and Clive Owen, and the ever elusive Bad Boys sequel.
