David Ayer Shares New Photo of Margot Robbie's Harley Quinn From SUICIDE SQUAD
Suicide Squad director David Ayer has taken to Twitter with a new photo of one of the film's breakout characters (if there can be a breakout character before the movie is even released). His first photo reveals actress Margot Robbie suited up as the fan favorite Harley Quinn, seen here applying a tattoo to an unnamed man's arm. (I can see a "w" and an "a" in what she's tattooing on him, so it could be the word "skwad" that Ayer used to accompany the photo.)
The second photo doesn't feature Robbie, but seems to be the handiwork of Quinn's character, who apparently has her own tattoo parler — or, excuse me, "parlour."
It's unclear whether this imagery will actually appear in the film at all, and if it is, when exactly it takes place in the larger story being told here. The broad strokes of Harley's story seem to have been teased in the film's Comic-Con trailer, and later a set photo hinted at her origin, but there's still a lot to learn about her role in the movie. Suicide Squad arrives in theaters on August 5th, 2016.
