Idris Elba Has Big
Ambitions For
Next Project
Even though Idris Elba is working on a new secret DC project and there were rumors that Bloodsport was getting his own television series on HBO Max, it's still in the air if this is what Elba is hinting at. What we do know is what the actor wants to see onscreen regarding Bloodsport, and it's a showdown all DC fans would be happy to see play out.
While promoting "Beast," Idris Elba caught up with Variety, explaining what Bloodsport story he'd like to see. "I would definitely like to tell the Superman story. There's no doubt. Bloodsport versus Superman. It needs to happen," Elba told the outlet.
We learned in "The Suicide Squad" that Bloodsport is the only person to ever put Superman in the hospital, which he achieved with a kryptonite bullet. Bloodsport has no superhuman powers or abilities to match Superman, but the interesting plot point is the backstory and why Bloodsport would feel the need to try and take out one of the most honorable heroes on the planet.
