Get more details on Suicide Squad + Harley Quinn Trailer on the flip…
In the highly anticipated movie, written and directed by David Ayer, a secret government agency led by Amanda Waller (Viola Davis) recruits a motley crew of imprisoned super-villains to embark on a highly dangerous black ops mission in exchange for clemency. Thankfully, Harley Quinn in her very first cinematic appearance.
Warner Bros. has debuted a new character trailer for Suicide Squad featuring everyone’s favorite villiainess Harley Quinn (Margot Robbie). Quinn is the new Clown Princess-focused trailer gives us a glimpse of never-before-seen footage of Daddy’s Little Mistake in action. In the clip you see Harley in her fashionable best, sporting tiny shorts and her signature cotton-candy colored pigtails. That with he joyfully psychoticness, Harley is seen checking her hair and makeup in an elevator, that is, until a faceless enemy crashes through the glass. Without a second of hesitation, Harley breaks into beast mode and takes him down with her baseball bat, then goes back to texting her beau, The Joker (Jared Leto).
Yeah, she’s not one to mess with.
and will shine a spotlight on anti-hero Harley Quinn in her very first cinematic appearance. Best known as “the Joker’s girlfriend,” Harley went on to star in her own series of comic books and graphic novels. In the 1994 one-shot Mad Love, readers learned of her rather unique origin story, which we will be seeing in Suicide Squad.
Writer/director David Ayer speaks on how Harley Quinn’s story is told in Suicide Squad.
Ayers told Screen Rant:
“I wanted Harley. She’s freaking cool, and she represents so many dichotomies in today’s world where everything is sensitive, and you can’t talk about anything, and you can’t represent anything, and you can’t do anything… she doesn’t care. She transcends everything. And that’s what’s so fascinating about her, you know? She’s so many things, and such a powerful woman who’s living life on her own terms, and so honestly in the moment, and a person of this incredible joy in the moment. It’s great to be able to work with that character, and Margot is knocking her out of the park.”
It sure seems as though Suicide Squad is setting up Harley Quinn to be a superstar in the DC Extended Universe. Talk of Harley getting her own spinoff film, pumped full of girl power, has already taken place in hopes of putting more superheroines and lady villains like Batgirl, Birds of Prey and Poison Ivy up on the big screen.
