With Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice finally released, the next movie slated to debut in the DCEU is none other than David Ayer’s Suicide Squad. Following the exploits of a group of villains turned reluctant heroes, the film will see numerous characters with long histories in DC comics brought to life for the first time ever. One such character that will finally come to the silver screen after decades of popularity in other media is Floyd Lawton, a.k.a, Deadshot.

Portrayed by legendary actor Will Smith, Lawton has developed an immense following over the years, and will undoubtedly be one of the coolest things about Suicide Squad. That being said, not everyone knows so much about the character. We’ve gone through the comics, cartoons, and TV shows to compile all of the vital information you needs to know about Deadshot before Suicide Squad premiers on August 5. Now let’s get started with a little background information…

What Is Deadshot's History?
Floyd Lawton, a.k.a Deadshot, is an iconic comic book character who first appeared all the way back in the 1950s. He’s one of the world’s deadliest assassins and a master of all firearms. Commonly associated with Batman, the villain turned anti-hero most regularly appears as a member (and often leader) of the Suicide Squad. His initial appearances depicted him as a gun-toting vigilante, but recent years have turned him into more of a straightforward gun for hire. Outside of the comics he has featured prominently in the Arkham video game series, the Justice League animated series, and The CW’s Arrowverse.
