The screening of “Suicide Squad” might be months away. But everyone, including actress Margot Robbie, is already excited about it.
According to Hello Giggles, the Australian actress is “dying to see the movie herself.” In the upcoming DC adaptation, Robbie plays Harley Quinn. Just what is former “Wolf of Wall Street” leading lady most excited about?
Apparently, they did a lot of experimenting on one aspect of Robbie’s character: her costume. “We tried on every variation of the [Harley Quinn] costume. I cannot emphasize enough how many outfits…we tried. We tried the court jester costume. We tried the corset and skirt. We tried leather pants. We tried literally every type of costume possible for her. I really love where we ended up,” Robbie told Hello Giggles.
According to Screen Rant, in the past, the cartoon Harley Quinn “just wore a black and red jester outfit with a domino mask.” Robbie’s Harley Quinn meanwhile will wear “blue and red sequinned booty shorts.”
The actress also clarified that she is not the main star of the movie. “It’s an ensemble movie…Everyone gets their moment in the film,” she said. One of the characters who definitely had his moment is The Joker. Jared Leto, who plays the iconic villain, earlier pulled a prank on Robbie and their “Suicide Squad” co-stars.
According to E! Online, Leto seems to have taken his character’s name to heart. He sent his co-stars a dead hog. Robbie meanwhile got an extra special surprise. Leto sent her a love letter. Plus, a breathing, black rat in a box. It was previously reported that “Suicide Squad” might be a face off between their two characters.
Excited to see Margot Robbie as Harley Quinn? Don’t hold your breath just yet. “Suicide Squad” is set to hit the big screen on August 5.
