It’s no secret that Warner Brothers seems to be fond of team-up films when it comes to the DC Cinematic Universe. With the Green Lantern Corps film and of course 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 Deadshot may 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. It’s also worth noting that both Ben Affleck and Will Smith are in the film, Suicide Squad.
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.
