I sure hope so.  At one point, the rumor going around was that Idris Elba was playing Deathstroke in Suicide Squad, but I hear that isn’t true, and I’m glad.  Because Bronze Tiger is a master martial artist with lightning-fast reflexes, and Elba can play a bad-ass no question.  Also Bronze tiger doesn’t wear a mask, so you’d get full-on Elba intensity and charm.  So why put Idris Elba in a role where you don’t see his face?

But while this is being reported as fact by others, it’s still a rumor until Warner Bros., James Gunn, or Idris Elba make it official.  Also in the rumor realm is the possibility that Benicio Del Toro will be playing the Suicide Squad’s main villain.  Which would be awesome as well.  We’ll just have to wait and see. – And could Will Smith slip in for a Deadshot cameo? One can only hope…
