Headlining a motley crew of the “worst heroes ever,” Robbie’s unhinged character will naturally play a pivotal role in Suicide Squad – she is the muse to the Clown Prince of Crime, after all – with earlier screenshots teasing the actress in normal guise as the aforementioned Harleen Qunizel. Couple this with the baptism shot from the film’s most recent trailer, which appears to be situated in Ace Chemicals, and you have all the makings of a true origin story for what is no doubt one of the more endearing characters in the DC vault.
David Ayer’s Suicide Squad will act as the next major expansion of the DC Extended Universe in the fallout of Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice when it opens on August 5.
