Suicide Squad is still dominating with its continuous marketing blitz. From new trailers to action figures, this upcoming film is bombarding every available avenue in order to stay in front of viewers. As of mid-July, the film was the most buzzed about movie of 2016 so far, which is saying a lot.
With just under two weeks to go, Suicide Squad is already tracking for a $115-$125M opening weekend. We’ve been introduced to all of the squad members; some we barely know and some we know quite well like Harley Quinn (Margot Robbie). Arguably one of, if not the, most popular of this rag-tag group, Harley Quinn has been a topic of great discussion. Topics have ranged from why director David Ayer chose New 52 Harley for costume inspiration, to how important is Joker in relation to Harley. It seems like fans just can’t get enough of the zany jester.
Empire has released its subscriber exclusive cover of Harley Quinn, and it captures her personality perfectly. The unpredictable wild card of the group is pictured with a gun in one hand and a baseball bat named “Good Night” in the other while riding a bomb. Take a look at the bombshell-esque cover:
As shown in her own trailer for Suicide Squad, it’s hard to know what to expect with Harley Quinn. She’s just as likely to double cross a teammate as she is to save their lives. The film promises flashbacks of Harley and Joker’s time together as well, leaving audiences wondering just how connected this power couple will be in the present day aspect of the film. A new Joker-centric trailer provides some insight that looks like movie-goers will get the Joker and Harley they’ve come to know from the comics. After the soundtrack was made public, a track dedicated to the troubled duo seemed to encapsulate their relationship quite well.
In the issue, Empire speaks with Ayer in his home, where he delves into his strange actor bonding tactics. Empire Magazine’s September Suicide Squad special issue hits newsstands on July 28th.
