Idris Elba Wants Bloodsport Prequel Sending Superman to The ICU

Idris Elba’s Bloodsport is one of the highlights of The Suicide Squad, and the actor has confirmed that he would like to delve deeper into the character’s story.

Robert Dubois is one of Belle Reve‘s highly dangerous prisoners who ends up being part of the team assembled by Amanda Waller to go to Corto Maltese. But what makes him unique is why he was arrested in the first place.

Speaking to Entertainment Tonight, Elba was asked what his next job with DC would be if he could choose. He stated that he is not thinking about a “next” one but rather a prequel to The Suicide Squad.

“I would be really interested to see why he went to jail, why did he shoot Superman? I would love to see that narrative come alive,” the actor stated.

Elba is referring to Bloodsport‘s story in the comics, which was also quoted in the film. Basically, Dubois was arrested for sending the Man of Steel to the ICU after hitting him with a kryptonite bullet provided by Lex Luthor.

The actor even stated that he used this information to motivate the character in several scenes. After all, this must get some credit among villains!
