One of the most exciting things about Suicide Squad is seeing the characters who make up Task Force X interact with each other. However, are you ready for romance between Deadshot and Harley Quinn? Asked how the movie is going to tell Harley's story, director David Ayer explained: "It's about her breaking free of The Joker and becoming this fully actualised, independent person. That really is a metaphor for everyone's journey here." Based on comments from star Will Smith, that could involve Deadshot and Harley hooking up. "Harley is the biggest troublemaker, but Deadshot's actually eyeballing her a little bit. There's a pretty ragged romantic triangle there."
This is nothing new of course. The chemistry between the two villains has been explored in "The New 52" Universe, but you have to believe that The Joker will be none too pleased to learn that Harley has set her sights on a new man. Regardless, Smith went on to talk more about where Deadshot is when we first meet him in Suicide Squad, and much of what he says links up to both the rumours and set photos from the past year or so. "As the movie opens, he has a really big career score," the actor reveals. "He's looking to turn over a new leaf with his daughter after the hit, but it goes wrong. It goes terribly, terribly wrong. And it lands him in Belle Reve for life." Thoughts?
