Elba witnessed the Toronto Raptors beat the Hawks 119-116, but he did not witness the first iteration of "Suicide Squad" — at least not firsthand. His reported character was portrayed in the 2016 flick by Smith, who had been seen in and around Atlanta this past summer filming the third follow-up to 1995's "Bad Boys," "Bad Boys for Life."
Smith’s flick will beat Elba’s into theaters, when it starts Jan. 17, 2020. Meanwhile, “The Suicide Squad,” for which filming is ongoing, isn’t scheduled for release until 2021.
