According to LATINO-REVIEW.COM, Will Smith may appear in Ben Affleck's solo Batman film as Deadshot. Furthermore, the sites claims that Smith's Deadshot will not be a "villain" per se, but will actually team-up with Affleck's Batman in a sorta "The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly" comic book/superhero film.

BOF has long heard whispers that next year's SUICIDE SQUAD is a "Batman Film" if you will, and that Batman villains from SS were expected to appear in the solo Batfleck Batflick – in particular Jared Leto’s Joker and Margot Robbie’s Harley Quinn. I honestly hadn't heard about Will Smith's Deadshot showing up in the next solo Batman film, but I can understand why Warner Bros. would want an Affleck/Smith team-up film because it would be HUGE.

This rumored plotline goes against an earlier report/rumor that claimed Affleck's solo Batman film would be based on "A Death in the Family" comic book story.

Personally, if I had to choose between these two rumored plots, I'd go with the Batman version of "The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly."

So, what do you all think? You buying this rumor? Would you like to see Affleck/Batman and Smith/Deadshot team-up and take on a team of Batman villains (likely led by The Joker)? Post your thoughts in the comments section below!
