Harley Quinn and Deadshot covers released!
Empire magazine continues to roll out their Suicide Squad character covers for their latest issue, and two more have now debuted online featuring Will Smith’s Deadshot and Margot Robbie’s Harley Quinn. Check them out in the gallery below along with previously-released covers and photos!
“When I got the role I started looking up Harley costumes online, with my mum sitting next to me,” Robbie tells Empire. “She was like, ‘My daughter is going to dress like a prostitute!’ There are a lot of angry mothers out there!”
Smith opened up about his role in the film, teasing the relationship between Deadshot, Harley Quinn, and The Joker. “Deadshot’s actually eyeballing [Harley] a little bit. There’s a pretty ragged romantic triangle there.”
Suicide Squad also stars Joel Kinnaman (RoboCop, Easy Money) as Rick Flagg, Jai Courtney (Divergent, The Water Diviner) as Captain Boomerang, Cara Delevingne (Anna Karenina, Pan) as Enchantress, Karen Fukuhara as Katana, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje as Killer Croc, Jay Hernandez as El DIablo, Adam Beach as Slipknot, Viola Davis as Amanda Waller, and Jared Leto as The Joker. There’s also mystery roles for Ike Barinholtz, Scott Eastwood, Raymond Olubowale, Alex Meraz, Jim Parrack, and Common.
Created by Robert Kanigher and Ross Andru back in 1959, the Suicide Squad team has included countless DC villains among its ranks, including Deadshot, Captain Boomerang, Bane, Killer Frost, Poison Ivy, Count Vertigo, Deathstroke, and Harley Quinn. The CW’s “Arrow” introduced their own version of the team in the most recent season of the series and the recent animated film, Batman: Assault on Arkham, offered another version of the team. Suicide Squad is scheduled for release on August 5, 2016.
