Helmed by James Gunn, The Suicide Squad introduced new characters and one of them was Bloodsport. Idris Elba who plays Bloodsport discussed ideas for a new project based in the Suicide Squad universe. Elba while talking to ET said that he would be really interested to see as to why his character in the film shot Superman and why did Bloodsport go to jail. He said that he would love to see that narrative 'come alive'. The movie revealed that Bloodsport was the only person to send Superman to hospital with his bullets. 

He further explained that didn't know what character he was playing, but he did know the type of character and knew the position he played within the storyline. He added, "but I did know that he was the first guy to put Superman in the hospital because he shot Superman and that's why he's in jail. That was very intriguing and also became a little bit of motivation in some of my scenes and my character development.” If the Bloodsport vs Superman Prequel got the green light, it might be possible that James Gunn might return to direct the project as he is already working on a spin-off series based on the Peacemaker's character.
