Don Cheadle Comments On Fake Reports He’s Replacing Will Smith In ‘Suicide Squad’

Avengers: Endgame star Don Cheadle has responded to a satirical report on him replacing Will Smith in the next Suicide Squad film.

Late last month, satire page Le Cinéphiles shared a post stating Don Cheadle was in talks to replace Will Smith as Deadshot in James Gunn’s The Suicide Squad. Of course, the report is merely a joke, but fans still had thoughts on just the idea of Don Cheadle taking over the role from Will Smith and not all of them were positive. However, Don Cheadle appears to be amused by the fan complaints and took to his official Twitter account to respond to how fans have reacted.

The first Suicide Squad featured an ensemble cast that included Will Smith as Deadshot, Margot Robbie as Harley Quinn, and Jared Leto as The Joker, all three of whom were expected to reprise their roles in the sequel before James Gunn became involved in the project. Although Suicide Squad earned mixed reviews, at best, the film became a box office hit for DC with a worldwide gross of $750 million.

The Suicide Squad is one of many projects currently being developed by Warner Bros. and DC Films, including The BatmanThe Flash standalone film, Green Lantern CorpsBirds of PreyBlack AdamCyborgNightwingSupergirl, New Gods, a Deathstroke film, and a Joker origin movie set outside of the DCEU.

Top Actors To Replace Ben Affleck In Matt Reeves’ ‘The Batman’

Ben Affleck is officially out as Batman and it’s a pretty sad day.

Words cannot describe how sad I am to see Ben Affleck announce that he’s no longer Batman. His Batman is why I do what I do. In Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, I fell in love with his comic book-accurate interpretation of the Caped Crusader. It was a breath of fresh air and it felt like we finally had the one true Batman.

Three years have quickly sped by and we’re officially going to receive a new Batman for his next movie. Last night, Ben Affleck announced that he will not return as the Dark Knight in Matt Reeves’ The Batman and now everyone’s attention has moved towards wanting to know who the next Bruce Wayne will be. Matt Reeves is said to want an actor that’s around 20 years younger than Affleck while Warner Bros. wants someone older. My guess is that Reeves wants a fresh start while the studio wants an older actor for crossover potential.

In this list, I will discuss the actors I think can replace Ben Affleck as Batman using the parameters that Matt Reeves and Warner Bros. want. Hit Next to see our picks to play the Batman.
