The screen debut of Harley Quinn is all something we’re eagerly waiting for within the upcoming DC Suicide Squad movie.
Fans across the world have had a mix of positive and negative comments when it came to Harley Quinn’s choice of costume in the teasers and trailers shown so far.
In a new interview, Harley Quinn actor Margot Robbie (The Wolf of Wall Street, Whiskey Tango Foxtrot) and Suicide Squad writer/director David Ayer talk about the costumes and their choice to use such a provocative choice of attire.
“[Harley is] wearing hot pants because they’re sparkly and fun. [Not because] she wanted guys to look at her ass.”
“As Margot, no, I don’t like wearing that. I’m eating burgers at lunchtime, and then you go do a scene where you’re hosed down and soaking wet in a white T-shirt, it’s so clingy and you’re self-conscious about it.”
Director David Ayer defended the wardrobe choice, naturally.
“I didn’t think denim overalls would be appropriate for that character, that’s part of the iconography.”
