Played by Idris Elba, Bloodsport was the villainous code name for Robert Dubois, a mercenary who became notorious for sending Superman to intensive care with a kryptonite bullet. Originally, it was reported that Elba would reprise the role of Deadshot from Will Smith, who was unable to reprise his role for the sequel. Elba addressed these reports in an interview, saying, “These rumors would be natural because Will said he wouldn’t be joining the second movie. Deadshot character because the Deadshot character lived in the other movie. But I’m really happy that James [Gunn] I didn’t want to do that; I didn’t mean to do this. Deadshot is an awesome character and Will is killing him, so I was really happy that the audience and the fans kept that rumor going. Surprise!”
Gunn said he’s far from done telling stories about DCEU villains. His next project, Peacemaker, will focus on John Cena’s ideologically confused super-soldier. The series is slated to air next year. However, there is currently no such plan for Bloodsport. Asked about rumors of a project featuring the character, Gunn replied, “There is a possibility to see more of Bloodsport in the near future – something I would love to see! – but there is nothing currently in development. “
For her part, Elba is keen to explore Bloodsport’s past and how he ended up at Belle Reve Correctional. When asked what he would like to see next for the mercenary, Elba explained, “It wouldn’t be next, that would be what happened before. I would be really interested to see why he went in. prison, why did he shoot Superman. I’d love to see this story come to life. “
The Suicide Team will be released on Blu-ray and DVD on October 28. Peacemaker Premiers January 13, 2022 on HBO Max.
