Will Smith has an idea on how he can become Batman


The MTV Movie Awards happened over the weekend, and MTV had the chance to talk to Will Smith about the upcoming Suicide Squad movie. The actor was asked if he’s excited about coming back as Deadshot in another DC movie. His response? He wants Deadshot to become Batman.

Of course, Smith was just having some fun with the question.

As for Floyd Lawton actually becoming Batman in the comics, I’m not sure that happened. If you know, let us know in the comments below. Perhaps he’s thinking about Azrael taking the Batman mantle? Or maybe he’s talking about Deadshot’s first appearance in “The Man Who Replaced Batman” (June 1950) where Lawton wants to take Batman’s spot.

Anyway, what do you think of Smith’s idea?

The film is directed by David Ayer and stars Smith as Deadshot, Margot Robbie as Harley Quinn, and Jared Leto as The Joker.

Suicide Squad hits theaters on August 5, 2016.
