‘Suicide Squad’: First Look at Will Smith as Deadshot

‘Suicide Squad’: First Look at Will Smith as Deadshot

As the debate about Jared Leto's Joker look in Suicide Squad starts to die down, we now get our first look at Will Smith as Deadshot. And it's sure to cause just as much controversy amongst hardcore fans of the comic book. Though he is taking on a look associated with the character, Will Smith also seems to be channeling his own Capt. James West persona from the Warner Bros. box office bomb Wild Wild West. We don't yet get to see his full assassin costume complete with Cybernetic eye.

Will Smith was spotted in costume while filming scenes for Suicide Squad in the streets of Toronto, Canada. This iconic villain, best known for his battles against Batman and Commissioner Gordon, is seen shopping with a young girl. Here, we see him exiting a store with his arms full of shopping bags, and the girl, maybe his daughter, is holding a doll. This scene may take place before Floyd Lawton takes on the full Deadshot persona.

Will Smith is one of the biggest stars on the planet. And that's because he routinely turns in great performances in fare that is liked by audiences and critics alike. But it hasn't always been smooth sailing for the rap superstar turned actor. Once known as Mr. July for opening a number of big summer movies, he had his first flop with 1999's Wild Wild West.

Will Smith's ‘Concussion’ Gets Christmas Day 2015 Release

Now that Mission: Impossible 5 has safely vacated it's Christmas Day, 2015 release slot, Sony Pictures is quick to fill in the empty space on the calendar with their NFL football drama Concussion. Will Smith stars in the true-life tale, which takes a look at football players and the life-threatening head injuries they often receive on the field. The news is nicely timed for this weekend's Super Bowl. Will we see the first trailer during the big game?

Opening December 25, Concussion is based on Dr. Bennet Omalu's studies.

In his search for the truth behind the devastating malady, Omalu's quest humanizes the price paid by professional athletes in impact sports but also by people who challenge the status quo as it exposes the political, cultural and corporate interests that fuel the business of sports.
