Bloodsport from The Suicide Squad

Bloodsport is a main character in The Suicide Squad, directed by James Gunn. His actual name is Robert DuBois, a mercenary whose technologically advanced suit allows him to create different gadgets and weapons. This is a variation of his comic book ability, which was the manifestation of weapons. Following his conviction of shooting Superman with a Kryptonite bullet, he goes to prison. However, Amanda Waller offers to shorten his sentence if he joins Task Force X. He agrees to join to help his daughter, Tyla. Idris Elba was cast as Bloodsport and not Deadshot so Will Smith could return.

Roland Deschain

In Stephen King’s The Dark Tower series, Roland Deschain of Gilead (Idris Elba) is the last in a long line of gunslingers who keep the peace. He often appears detached and unsympathetic, but keeps a strong sense of heroism and helps others in need. He takes inspiration from Clint Eastwood’s The Man with No Name.

John Luther

Detective Chief Inspector John Luther (Idris Elba) works for the Serious and Serial Crime Unit on the BBC show Luther. He’s a brilliant, gritty detective who often toes the line between following the law and breaking it. Either way, tweed’s never looked better than it does on him.
