So this might just be the best news ever. Margot Robbie has reportedly been casted as Harley Quinn in the upcoming supervillain film, ‘Suicide Squad’!
We loved Margot Robbie, 24, in Wolf Of Wall Street, and now fans get to fall in love with her all over again a very different role. The actress will be playing Harley Quinn, The Joker’s henchwoman and love interest, in the upcoming film, Suicide Squad. Is she perfect for this role, or is she perfect for this role?
Margot Robbie In ‘Suicide Squad’
Margot’s highly anticipated role will be the first ever big screen appearance of DC Comic’s Harley Quinn, as Collider reported. She will play the on-again off-again girlfriend of The Joker, who is reportedly being played by Jared Leto. This will be an oddly hot villain couple.
The Suicide Squad, also referred to in comics as Task Force X, is a group of villains who complete Black Ops missions for the US government in exchange for pardoned prison sentences. Thus, the entire existence of the Suicide Squad is to explain why all of the comic villains manage to roam free without detainment until they commit another crime and are inevitably stopped by a super hero.
Cast of ‘Suicide Squad’ Revealed
Margot and Jared are only the most recent of the all-star movie cast to be revealed. Tom Hardy and Will Smith are also major names that are reported to have leading roles in this epic film, along with Jesse Eisenberg who is expected to play Superman’s enemy, Lex Luthor.
Cara Delevigne was rumored to have been in consideration for the role as well. We haven’t seen her acting chops yet, but we can only imagine that she would have been a good contender. After all, she made a pretty hot Harley Quinn in her Instagram post.
If we weren’t excited for this film before, then we are ecstatic now! Suicide Squad is expected to play in theaters beginning August 5, 2016.
