Suicide Squad: Harley Quinn Rides A Nuke In First Look At Empire’s Subscriber Cover

Harley Quinn has never been one to play by the rules – hey, they don’t call her the Clown Princess of Crime for nothing – but the DC icon really throws caution to the wind on Empire’s all-new subscriber’s cover, which has Margot Robbie straddling a nuke without a care in the world.

It is, of course, designed to trumpet the arrival of the Suicide Squad, David Ayer’s assembly of baddies that is teetering on the edge of its theatrical debut. Featuring a chat with Ayer himself, Empire’s latest issue is expected to become available on July 28, lending fans ample time to delve into all the new tidbits pertaining to Task Force X.


Capping off a truly jam-packed week for Suicide Squad, today’s cover reveal comes off the back of a long string of new clips and TV spots for the Warner Bros. blockbuster, spotlighting everyone from Cara Delevingne’s Enchantress – said to be the chief big bad orchestrating the chaos on screen – and Jared Leto as the maniacal Joker. There have also been a deluge of posters, too, with the latest featuring Harley Quinn herself striking a pose or two.

Also starring Jai Courtney as Captain Boomerang, Viola Davis as Amanda Waller, Cara Delevingne as Enchantress, Ben Affleck as Bruce Wayne, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje as Killer Croc, Jay Hernandez as El Diablo and Adam Beach as Slipknot, Suicide Squad launches headfirst into theatres on August 5, 2016.
