    Thank goodness, as I said earlier in the thread when the news of him being cast in the film, nothing against Idris Elba, but I hate re-casting of characters in pre-existing universes. I had read that I believe it was James Gunn said that this isn't a sequel.. but still has Margot Robbie, Viola Davis, Jai Courtney & pretty much every one other than Will Smith (allegedly only due to schedule conflicts) reprising their roles.. so yeah, baloney.

    I'm also glad because it leaves the door open for Will Smith to reprise the role sometime down the line.

    I hope he is playing Bronze Tiger and Deathstroke isn't even in this movie.

    I was willing to give Elba the benefit of the doubt just because I like him so much but agree this is much better than a recast.

    Bronze Tiger or for some reason I think he'd make a good fit as Wild-Cat ( Elba is huge martial arts fan training in Kickboxing & Muay Thai)

    Martial artist Ben (Bronze Tiger) Turner seems like a good fit for Elba

    If he's playing Bronze Tiger, I hope to God they don't having him running around in a tiger mask. That looks stupid enough in the comic books; I can't imagine it looking good on film.

    Also don't do the CW version where he's just wearing a bronze leather jacket and uses wolverine claws.

    Agreed, that was weak too. Also, Michael Jai White, who I usually really like, was terrible in that role.
