Will Smith on DC Comics' Suicide Squad: 'We have to get it right'.

Will Smith has offered an update on the status of upcoming DC Comics movie Suicide Squad.

Director David Ayer aimed to begin shooting the super-villain team-up movie this spring, before Tom Hardy dropped out of the lead role as Rick Flag.

Joel Kinnaman, Jon Bernthal and Joel Edgerton are among the actors who are rumoured to replace Hardy as Rick Flag, who leads the villains on a mission of redemption.

Speaking to USA Today, Smith - who will play Deadshot - said that the recasting of Rick Flag has only led to a minor delay.
