The costume designs and overall aesthetic choices in David Ayer's Suicide Squad divided many fans of the comic books, especially when it came to the film's female cast members. While some liked the torn and colorful look of Margot Robbie's Harley Quinn in the film, others were let down by the revealing and greasy look of Cara Delevingne's June Moon/Enchantress, who went on to be one of the more commonly maligned aspects of the movie. Following the release of some new concept art from the film, though, it seems like Ayer and co. always had a fairly clear idea of what these live-action iterations were going to look like, no matter how controversial some of the choices may seem.
Right now, similar to Batman V Superman earlier this year, fans are eagerly awaiting the upcoming home video release of Suicide Squad in November (Digital HD) and December (Blu-ray) as well, which in addition to coming with bonus features and behind-the-scenes insight into the film, will also include an extended cut containing a number of its most-speculated deleted scenes. A couple brand new looks at some of the film's most prominent characters has been released too, from one of the most important visual artists involved in the current DC Extended Universe.
In anticipation of the film's upcoming home video release, frequent Zack Snyder collaborator and still photographer Clay Enos has revealed two of his exclusive portraits from Suicide Squad, both of which shine spotlights specifically on both Robbie's Harley Quinn and Delevingne's pre-Enchantress June Moon. You can see them for yourself below:
While the fate of the Enchantress' role in the future of the DC Extended Universe seemed doubtful at the end of Suicide Squad, Robbie's Harley Quinn has already been confirmed to be returning onscreen again, not only in a possible Suicide Squad sequel, but also in her own Harley Quinn spinoff film. The movie will be co-produced by Robbie herself, and has been rumored to introduce and put a heavy focus on other strong, female characters from the DC comics in addition to Harley. However, no official plot details are known about the film currently.
Robbie's Quinn was perhaps the most well-liked aspect of the film both by critics and fans, and it's not hard to see why Enos went on to caption his portrait of Harley with "Halloween inspiration," judging by the amount of Harley Quinn costumes that were being worn all across the world during Halloween this year. So it seems like no matter what your opinion is of the film's interpretations of these characters, they've at least gone on to leave a memorable mark not only in the comic book genre, but also in pop culture as a whole.
Suicide Squad will be available on digital November 15, 2016 and Blu-ray December 13, 2016.
