Of all the villains set to be added to the DC Cinematic Universe in Suicide Squad, Harley Quinn has to be one of the most difficult to get right. The Joker is a challenge of course, but this will be the first notable live-action appearance made by the character who debuted in Batman: The Animated Series. As a result, the pressure is on for everyone involved!
The casting of Margot Robbie was something of a dream come true for fans. Every since her sexy and sultry performance in The Wolf Of Wall Street, they had been suggesting that the Australian actress would be ideal for the role, and Warner Bros. must have taken note of that when it came to putting together the Suicide Squad cast.
Over the years, Harley Quinn has taken on various different appearances, whether it’s on television, in the comic books, or even in video games. »

A frame has yet to be shot from "Suicide Squad," not to mention that the film due before it, the superhero packed "Batman v. Superman: Dawn Of Justice," is still awaiting its first teaser trailer. There is plenty of curiosity about both movies, which will mark very significant steps in establishing DC Comics on the big screen, as they attempt to get into the same sandbox as their rivals at Marvel. However, they are sticking with a playbook established by Christopher Nolan's Batman movies for the tone of their efforts. “I think on a scale of like, 'The Dark Knight' is here and 'The Avengers' is here, I think it’s more on the 'Dark Knight' side of things,” the actress teased to MTV. And like anyone signing up for a franchise these days, Robbie is in for the long haul. “You don’t need to have commitment issues »

No jokes. It was a mandate we had heard about the developing DC Cinematic Universe, and it.s one that flies in stark contrast (get it?) to the lighter movies of Marvel. Yet, David Ayer.s Suicide Squad is going to have a Joker (in Jared Leto), and the maniacal Harley Quinn (in Margot Robbie). It has to be humorous. Right? Maybe not. Knowing that it.s very early in the process, Margot Robbie spoke with MTV about the upcoming super-villain movie, and what fans can expect. She was asked specifically about the tone of the material, as that can go a long way toward preparing an audience for the end result. Specifically, Robbie was asked if Suicide Squad would resemble Christopher Nolan.s somber, serious Batman trilogy, or Joss Whedon.s The Avengers. She explained that Squad likely will borrow its tone from Nolan, saying: I think on a »
This story is going to be a surprise to nobody, but it is now confirmed at least. And that's the news that when Margot Robbie signed up to play Harley Quinn in 2016's Suicide Squad movie - which starts shooting shortly - she was committing to several films playing the role.
So: how does Robbie feel, knowing she may be playing the same role for years and year and year? "Yeah, that's daunting", she said to Az Central. "You don't need to have commitment issues to be frightened by the fact that you might have just signed 10 years of your life away".
Joel Kinnaman is in early talks to step into the role vacated by Tom Hardy in Suicide Squad. Will Smith, Margot Robbie and Jared Leto are starring in the movie, with David Ayer directing. Jai Courtney and Cara Delevingne are also part of the cast of the Warner Bros. project based on the DC Entertainment characters. Hardy was to have played Rick Flagg, the leader of the group that consists of Batman villains Deadshot (Smith), Joker (Leto) and Harley Quinn (Robbie), plus Boomerang (Courtney) and Enchantress (Delevingne). Hardy dropped out in mid-January ostensibly over scheduling reasons. But script issues

Will Smith and Margot Robbie have both confirmed that they still don't have the completed script for Suicide Squad - weeks away from the start of production on the film. Speaking at the UK press conference for Focus, where they both play members of an elite team of criminals (not a million miles away from Suicide Squad), they were asked if their chemistry from that film would influence the DC Comics adaptation.
“We don't what the relationships are actually going to be. It’s ever changing,” answered Robbie, who’s cast as The Joker’s on-again, off-again girlfriend Harley Quinn. “I think we're going to be allies. We're not being secretive we actually just don't know!”
Will Smith went on to explain it’s all part of director David Ayre’s process. »
Margot Robbie is a great choice for Suicide Squad's Harley Quinn. Despite being Australian, she nailed the thick Brooklyn accent that was required for Naomi, her Wolf Of Wall Street character. One of Harley Quinn's distinctive characteristics is her unique accent, and one would imagine that this would be a priority. However, Robbie has revealed that the accent itself hasn't been solidified just yet.
SuperHeroHype talked to Robbie at the Sundance Film Festival where she expressed her excitement to be working on Suicide Squad with director David Ayer. She also spoke about her character's distinctive accent.
"None of those things have been set in stone at this point, but according to the comics, she's from New York and I think Brooklyn, so there may be a slight… I couldn't imagine it would as strong as the Wolf of Wall Street accent," she said, "The lingo will be the »
