Writer/director James Gunn says Harley Quinn’s costume in The Suicide Squad is inspired by the fan-favorite video game, Batman: Arkham City. Fresh off the MCU’s Guardians of the Galaxy franchise, Gunn’s latest project, The Suicide Squad, brings his beautifully twisted style to the DCEU. As a reboot/spiritual sequel to David Ayer’s Suicide Squad (2016), Margot Robbie’s Harley Quinn and other returning characters will be joined by newcomers including John Cena’s Peacemaker, Joel Kinnaman’s Rick Flag, and Idris Elba’s Bloodsport.
Thanks to her chaotic and charming performance, Robbie’s Harley is one of the DCEU’s most popular characters. Naturally, the Joker’s ex would be featured in the film. Before its August release,The Suicide Squad’s final trailer recently made its way online. On top of showing the DC villains battling a starfish, it showcased Pete Davidson’s Black Guard, Sylvester Stallone’s King Shark, and Elba’s Bloodsport, who was incarcerated after shooting Superman with a Kryptonite bullet. The trailer also gave fans a few glimpses of Harley’s new black-on-red leather costume, which Gunn says was inspired by a DC video game franchise.
