Natalie Portman suits up as Harley Quinn to replace Margot Robbie in stunning new artwork that depicts the Thor star as the iconic DC Comics character.
While she will be suiting up as the Mighty Thor in the Marvel Cinematic Universe soon, Instagram artist “doubledomino” decided to replace Harley Quinn actress Margot Robbie with Natalie Portman. It’s an interesting choice since Thor star Natalie Portman doesn’t seem like the type of actress that could pull off Harley Quinn’s spontaneously bizarre supervillain tendencies. But after looking back at her performances in films like Leon, Garden State and Vox Lux, it’s clear that Natalie Portman’s Harley Quinn could work just as well as Margot Robbie’s.
Natalie Portman’s Harley Quinn wears the classic red and black court jester costume in this new piece of fan art that also sees her with a wide smile. Although we briefly saw Margot Robbie wear the suit in an all-too-brief flashback during David Ayer’s Suicide Squad, fans have been dying to see her don the costume again. You can see Natalie Portman as Harley Quinn in the artwork below.
