More New ‘Suicide Squad’ Images; Plus Margot Robbie Discusses Harley Quinn’s Relationship With The Joker

Peter Safran The Suicide Squad David Ayer

Even more Suicide Squad images from the latest issue of Total Film have found their way online (along with high-res versions of the ones from yesterday), featuring Margot Robbie as Harley Quinn, Karen Fukuhara as Katana, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje as Killer Croc and the rest of the Task Force X. There are also a couple of behind-the-scenes images, one of which features director David Ayer with Will Smith and Joel Kinnaman on the set of the movie.

Speaking with the magazine, Robbie talked about her character’s relationship with Jared Leto’s Joker in the movie. Judging from her comments, it sounds like the internet is going to be talking about that for a while after the release of the movie:

“She is a very cheerful, bubbly sort of person. A lot of the comments were like ‘She has this unflappable sense of humor. She’s so bubbly. She loves The Joker so much.’ So I definitely didn’t want to lose that. Having said that, David’s approach is the much darker side of the story, so it’s a bit of both. Harley’s story is about her relationships – not just with him, but finding herself and her independence. Their relationship is nuts. It’s terrifying. She’s co-dependent with The Joker, and when you see that, you start seeing it as a mental illness.”

You can check out the new images below (click to enlarge).

It feels good to be bad…Assemble a team of the world’s most dangerous, incarcerated Super Villains, provide them with the most powerful arsenal at the government’s disposal, and send them off on a mission to defeat an enigmatic, insuperable entity. U.S. intelligence officer Amanda Waller has determined only a secretly convened group of disparate, despicable individuals with next to nothing to lose will do. However, once they realize they weren’t picked to succeed but chosen for their patent culpability when they inevitably fail, will the Suicide Squad resolve to die trying, or decide it’s every man for himself?

Suicide Squad hits theaters on August 5, 2016. Are you excited?
