SUICIDE SQUAD: Hot New 'Harley Quinn' Pic; Margot Robbie Talks Team Manipulation, 'Joker' Relationship

SUICIDE SQUAD: Hot New 'Harley Quinn' Pic; Margot Robbie Talks Team Manipulation, 'Joker' Relationship

In this new interview from CinemaCon, Margot Robbie divulges a few interesting tidbits about her take on DC's fan-favorite Batman baddie, and her messed up relationship with The Joker in Suicide Squad...

Ever since her introduction in Batman: The Animated Series, Harley Quinn has wormed her way into fans' hearts with her endearing brand of wacky, fun-loving villainy. Of course, she also happens to be a highly dangerous lunatic with an unhealthy obsession with The Joker.

Margot Robbie will bring the hugely popular character to the big screen for the first time in this year's Suicide Squad, and the Wolf of Wall Street actress spoke to the LA Times about tapping into some of Harley's more familiar character traits.


"She's definitely one of the more unpredictable members of the squad. She also used to be a psychiatrist so she has an extensive knowledge of mental illnesses and how to manipulate people -- I'm sorry, well, she has a lot of knowledge on how to profile people, pick their triggers, and as Harley Quinn she kind of utilizes that to just manipulate people and mess with them. And she definitely does that with the squad. She's always picking someone to be dissecting and playing off and messing with."

Plus, from the sounds of things, Miss Quinn's dysfunctional (to say the least) relationship with The Joker is going to be pretty faithful to the pair's comic book origins.

"She's mad about him -- like, literally, mad. She's crazy. But she loves him. And it's a really unhealthy, dysfunctional relationship. But an addictive one."

You can check out the latest trailer again below, along with a very hot new still that we dug up. Suicide Squad hits theaters on August 5th.
