While the focus is currently on Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, Suicide Squad is just around the corner.
Robbie spoke with Hello Giggles while promoting her latest feature film, Whiskey Tango Foxtrot. She opened up about Squad and about the fact that she is dying to see the movie herself. Robbie is so excited fans might even be able to see her at some screens once the film is released.
“I think I’m more excited than anyone about this movie. I’m not even going to pretend to play it cool. I am dying to see it. When people are like “I can’t wait to see it.” I’m like “You’ve got no idea, I want to see it more than you do!” I think it’s going to be so cool, and I just love that there’s a chick character who’s that badass, and who’s actually, like funnier and crazier and stronger than some of the males. I think that rarely happens.”
The Wolf of Wall Street actress was originally almost signed onto another project before she picked up the bat and embraced Harley Quinn.
” I was actually about to sign up for another project, and Warner Bros. heard that I was about to sign on to something else. Before I signed on, they quickly jumped in and said, “Before you do that, just consider this role, because you don’t want to miss this! You’d be right for it!” And I was like “Oh, ok, let me read the script.” And they were like, “There is no script!” And I was like, “Oookay who else is in it?” And they were like, “No one yet!” And I was like, “okay, what is this film?”
Robbie was asked if she would be back for a sequel, she answered simply, “Absolutely.”
Suicide Squad will be released on August 5, 2016.
