It’s no secret that Warner Bros. seems to be fond of team-up films when it comes to the DC Cinematic Universe. With the Green Lantern Corps film, Suicide Squad and Batman v Superman, it shouldn’t surprise us that Batman would team-up with someone in his solo film, but who he’s teaming up with is a bit of a surprise.
According to Latino-Review, Will Smith’s Suicide Squad character (Deadshot) will be teaming up with Ben Affleck’s Batman in the next solo Batman film. They are reporting that Will Smith is “psyched” about being apart of the DC universe and with him signing a multi picture deal it’s very possible for him to appear in Batman. If things go as planned it will be a “The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly” scenario.
Having two A-list actors side-by-side is an opportunity WB does not want to miss out on, especially with Ben Affleck (likely) directing. Of course this should be taken with a grain of salt as this contradicts the rumor that Joblo released over a month ago. They reported that Batman would team-up with a different character, Nightwing. Stay tuned as the story develops.
Suicide Squad hits theaters August 5th, 2016.
