Idris Elba Does A Hilarious James Gunn Imitation In This BTS Video

He’s funny and charismatic as well.

The Suicide Squad is finally out, and for those who have not yet scheduled a screening for the sequel to 2016’s Suicide Squad, here’s a hilarious Behind-The-Scenes video of one of the stars of the movie, Idris Elba, making a funny imitation of The Suicide Squad director James Gunn.

James Gunn, director of The Suicide Squad, and other superhero movies (such as the Guardians Of The Galaxy series), recently posted a hilarious Behind-The-Scenes video of Idris Elba, who plays Bloodsport in the new movie, on his Instagram account. In the video, we can see Elba imitating James’ voice when he directs a movie on the set of The Suicide Squad, James captioned the video:

“Idris taking the p*** and imitating me on the set of #TheSuicideSquad.”

“I was often worried about our cinematographer/camera operator Henry Braham’s arms and back because I redo lines and actions over and over, sometimes resulting in single takes running over twenty minutes. Henry would have to hold up the Nano rig for most of that time and I didn’t want to destroy him.”

“(Also in the shot are my great script supervisor Marty “The Cobra” Kitrosser and Executive Producer Nik Korda.”

Idris Elba plays Bloodsport in The Suicide Squad, a deadly assassin who ends up doing jail time because he murdered a major superhero.

At first glance, Elba’s character is almost similar to Will Smith’s Deadshot from the first movie and this is not mere coincidence. Deadshot was meant to be replaced by Bloodsport in the movie because Will Smith was unable to make time to play Deadshot due to a prior commitment to the movie King Richard.

The Suicide Squad is the highly anticipated sequel to 2016’s Suicide Squad, directed by David Ayer.

Despite being a box office success, the 2016 movie was met with criticism from critics and the general crowd, with critics pointing out the bad plotline to the not-so-interesting characters of the movie. However, this time its different. DC has hired James Gunn, the director of the acclaimed Guardians of The Galaxy movies, to direct The Suicide Squad. One of the many changes James has brought to the table in order to make the movie better than its predecessor is the introduction of talented cast members such as Idris Elba, John Cena, Daniela Melchior, and even the legendary Sylvester Stallone.

The Suicide Squad is currently screening in theaters, you can also watch the movie on the streaming service HBO Max.
