Idris Elba replaces Will Smith as Deadshot in Suicide Squad 2. Tyrese Gibson joins the cast of Morbius, while Jared Leto drops the first teaser for the film.
Disney+ will include the entire library of Disney films, including those in the dreaded Disney Vault. This most likely excludes Song of the South (we don’t talk about that one).
