A "Deadshot" movie is said to soon surface care of Warner Bros., presumably due to the controversial feedback that surrounded "Suicide Squad." In tribute of this, it was said that the DC mainstay could finally get his share of the limelight.

The potential of a "Suicide Squad 2" has lit up flames all over the web, and to ignite the flame further, spin-off films were rumored on surfacing soon as well. These include the "Gotham City Sirens" which will then star Harley Quinn, Catwoman and Poison Ivy, though the cast is yet to be revealed. Which brings the question on what is to happen with the rumored "Deadshot."

The same cannot be said for "Deadshot," which is expected to recast Will Smith as the world's greatest marksman. Recent reports claimed that the astonishing performance of Smith was one of the key points in the movie, despite the criticism that went around it. Sharing the spotlight with Robbie, the actor was given his share of airtime all across "Suicide Squad" and established his influence within the group.

As for the story of "Deadshot," there is no certainty on what could happen just yet. Speculations revolve saying that it could be an origin story on how the titular villain came to be, whereas others believe that it could transpire after what happened in "Suicide Squad." Nonetheless, the movie is still lying on a thin wire for the time being and everything else should be taken as a grain of salt.

For those who may be unaware, Floyd Lawton or "Deadshot" is originally a villain for Batman who gained a skill in perfect shooting. Aliased as "the man who never misses," he is declared as the second most lethal assassin in the DC universe after Deathstroke, but is the sharpest shooter in the said universe. The marksman has made appearances in games, television and the big screen recently, but is yet to receive his respective standalone.
