Praise all around! At last, we’ve got our first look at Jared Leto on the set of ‘Suicide Squad’– and his Joker looks even creepier in action!
Though we’ve been teased with glimpses of his eerie look, we now have a peek at Jared Leto in all his green haired glory on set filming Suicide Squad. But the good news doesn’t stop there! In these pics, which are straight from the set of the movie which is filming in Toronto, Ontario, we get to see Jared’s Joker, in addition to Margot Robbie as the forlorn Harley Quinn– and her look may not be what you were expecting. Check out all of the pics right now!
‘Suicide Squad’ Pics From The Set
If these pics from the set of Suicide Squad are any indication, Harley Quinn will have a very different look from what fans of the comic books in which she originated have become accustomed to. Ditching the pigtails, in these pics, Harley is rocking some bookworm-y specs and a button down shirt.
So, obviously, we need to unpack these pics. In the most telling of the photos, we see Harley holding a gun squarely in the face of the Joker. Therefore, it might be safe to assume that we are glimpsing scenes early on in the relationship between the two. Ya know, before Harley totally loses it.
The Origin Of Harley Quinn
For those who are unfamiliar with the story, Harleen Quinzel was originally a doctor at Arkham Asylum. It was her job to attempt to restore the Joker’s sanity but, naturally, she ended up falling in love with him instead and then helping him to escape from the asylum.
Too late, Harleen realizes her mistake and attempts to distance herself from the Joker, and as payback he dumps her into the same chemicals that turned him into the villain we all know him as. Sure enough, she too becomes mentally unstable and that’s that.
What do you think of Harley Quinn’s look? Are you excited to see she and the Joker square off?
