"Suicide Squad's" Harley Quinn May Be Involved In "Ragged Love Triangle"

Traditionally, while the relationship between Harley Quinn and the Joker has been unhealthy at best, it's generally been a monogamous one. However, when Warner Bros.' "Suicide Squad" crashes into theaters in 2016, the popular DC Comics anti-hero's love life will become even more complex than usual.

In an article from an upcoming issue of "Empire Magazine," Will Smith says his character might be providing a third side to the Harley/Mistah J dynamic.

"Harley is the biggest troublemaker, but Deadshot's actually eyeballing her a little bit," Smith said. "There's a pretty ragged romantic triangle there."

Director David Ayer expands on that a bit, offering some insight into why the traditional villainous pairing will see some cracks in its maniacal veneer. "It's about [Harley] breaking free of The Joker and becoming this fully actualised, independent person," Ayer explained. "That really is a metaphor for everyone's journey here."

Of course, this isn't completely out of the blue. In recent years, Harley and Deadshot did pair off in the comic book incarnation of the Squad, though it was ultimately more of a brief dalliance than a relationship.

Starring Smith as Deadshot, Margot Robbie as Harley Quinn and Jared Leto as the joker, "Suicide Squad" is scheduled to debut Aug. 5, 2016.
