Now, while DC's Suicide Squad may have wound up on the receiving end of a particular brutal critical kicking — from fans and journalists alike — it sure did make a whole lot of money at the box office. That, perhaps, partly explains why so many of the film's key creative figures are so keen to jump right back into the #DCEU waters so soon after leaving them, with both the film's director David Ayer and #HarleyQuinn herself, #MargotRobbie, having signed on for the upcoming #GothamCitySirens.
As it turns out, though, that project may still have some room for even more #SuicideSquad alums within its as-yet unfinished narrative borders. Or, at least, that's what #WillSmith seems to be hoping. After all...
Will Smith REALLY Wants To Play Deadshot In 'Gotham City Sirens,' It Seems
That, at least, is what his recent interview with MTV seemed to suggest, with the actor revealing that:
"I’d definitely love to be in it... I love Margot Robbie. I will do, like, anything she wants to do. That didn’t come out, but… it probably did. It probably came out exactly how I meant it."
Which a) does strikingly little to dispel the persistent rumors of Smith and Robbie's personal involvement, and b) seems to confirm that Smith's #Deadshot is now a pretty solid bet for a cameo in Gotham City Sirens, at the very least. Whether or not the movie needs him, however, very much remains to be seen. After all, if the film is indeed going to finally give Harley Quinn a functional, semi-healthy romantic relationship on the big screen, there's a pretty strong argument that it ought to be with Poison Ivy, as opposed to the Suicide Squad-teased Deadshot.
