Will Smith’s slap in the face of Chris Rock at the 94th Oscar ceremony continues to bring the worst repercussions for the actor. As the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences decides what actions to take with Will, the actor’s roles plummet. In recent days, several Smith projects have been on standby and now one more is added to the list, the solo movie of one of the DC comics antiheroes.
In 2016 Will Smith was under the direction of director David Ayer for the film Suicide Squad. The story introduces a group known as Task Force X, which is made up of DC villains and anti-heroes, such as Harley Quinn (Margot Robbie), Captain Boomerang (Jai Courtney), Killer Croc (Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje) and of course Deadshot. , played by Smith.
The film did not have the expected impact, in fact it was a failure at the box office. Anyway Suicide Squad served to better position the characters. The public was delighted with Will’s Deadshot. Since then, fans have asked for a solo film of the antihero and in recent times the project had gained strength, but it seems that it will not prosper.
In a recent article presented by Rolling Stone, it is detailed that Warner Bros. and DC Comics decided to suspend the Deadshot film project indefinitely. The report explains that while there are no more concrete details about the film’s suspension, part of it is said to be due to Will Smith’s high salary requirement, which is said to be $20 million.
The publication does not detail that the decision made by Warner and DC is based on what happened at the Oscar. In any case, this situation comes at the worst moment, just when several of Will’s projects collapse and he decides to enter a rehabilitation clinic.
