Last year, Will Smith appeared on the episode of Actually Me on GQ YouTube, where he went undercover to reply to his fans on social media. The first question for Smith on Twitter was why he and Dwayne Johnson have not starred in a movie yet. He replied to the tweet in his humble attempt at pulling off The Rock’s iconic style.

Will Smith said, “That’s my question. That’s my question. (in The Rock’s style) I might have to do old school smackdown walk up on him. I don’t know, I would love to work with The Rock. He is a beast.”

This is indeed The Rock style, as The Brahma Bull often used to say “I’ll lay the SmackDown on your….” in his promos. Smith and Johnson know each other very well, however; they have never crossed paths together on the same movie project. These two superstars in one movie will definitely be a blockbuster.

Will Smith was the part of DCEU’s Suicide Squad where he played Deadshot. However, he didn’t reprise the role due to scheduling issues and Idris Elba played Deadshot in Suicide Squad 2. It Smith never left DCEU, we would have got to see both actors in one movie someday in the future.
