The Wolf of Wall Street actress Margot Robbie understands how important DC Comics antihero Harley Quinn is to fans, but she says she's ready to bring her to life in director David Ayer's Suicide Squad.
“Yeah, I guess it’s intimidating because there’s obviously a lot of people I want to please, and a character I have to do justice,” she tells MTV. “But it’s a challenge, I’m definitely up for it, and hopefully I don’t disappoint.”
In the film, as in the comics, there's a relationship between Harley and one of DC's most famous villains, The Joker. While Robbie has another movie to shoot before Suicide Squad starts production in mid-April, she's already confident that Jared Leto was the right choice to play the Clown Prince of Crime. “Great, great co-star,” she said.
Arriving in theaters on Aug. 5, 2016, Suicide Squad also stars Will Smith as Deadshot, Jai Courtney as Boomerang and Cara Delevigne as Enchantress, with Viola Davis circling the role of Amanda Waller. Tom Hardy was originally attached to play Rick Flag, but he dropped out earlier this month,
