It has not yet been announced which actors other than Robbie, if any, will be returning for the second film, currently slated for release on Aug. 6, 2021.
In the meantime, Elba has more than his fair share of projects already gearing up for release, including the Netflix comedy series Turn Up Charlie and the upcoming Fast and Furious spin-off Hobbs & Shaw, in which he stars as a gun-toting super villain that should give fans an idea at how he'll handle the sure-to-be action-packed role as Deadshot.
Elba is also making his Saturday Night Live hosting debut this weekend, and the dapper thespian donned a sharp suit and popped some (enormous) bottles of champagne to celebrate in this hilarious promo NBC released on Wednesday.
For anyone who (nonsensically) didn't think Elba could pull off the black-tie charm and elegant style needed to play James Bond, this promo should rightly put the final nail in the coffin of that misconception.
Elba hosts SNL on March 9 at 11:30 p.m. ET, 8:30 p.m. PT along with musical guest Khalid.
