Bloodsport vs Deadshot - Who's in Charge of the Suicide Squad?

Someone's got to be in charge.

As we see more and more of The Suicide Squad, we all keep wondering how much it will have to do with the original Suicide Squad.

Among other characters that got a little bit of the spotlight, we got to see more of Idris Elba’s character, Bloodsport.

It makes DC fans wonder about who exactly is leading the team in this movie and where Deadshot is during all this.

Bloodsport vs Deadshot

Idris Elba’s character Bloodsport is one who’s made many appearances ever since he debuted back in the 1980s as a Superman villain. Two men have taken up the mantle of the villain, Robert DuBois and Alex Trent. We don’t officially know which character Elba is playing, but as DuBois is a black man and Trent is a white supremacist, I think it’s safe to assume that this rendition of the character is Robert DuBois.

Originally, Elba was set to replace Will Smith as Deadshot from 2016’s Suicide Squad, however, as reported by Variety, his role was rewritten to make him a new character.

The confusion over Bloodsport vs Deadshot is understandable as the Suicide Squad movies have been a little all over the place. It seems like the upcoming film is in good hands with James Gunn and as we continue seeing more of it, it just keeps looking better.
