The very lovely Margot Robbie, currently doing the press circuit for Focus, has once again been talking about playing Harley Quinn in the upcoming Suicide Squad movie from David Ayer.

In the interview with MTV – watch it below – the actress says she didn’t have to audition for the part: “I actually got offered this one, I didn’t audition, which is a real step up as an actor when you can get offered things.”

She also reveals she didn’t have to do tests with Will Smith (Deadshot) and that she already knew the new Joker, Jared Leto.

But what of the tone of the movie? Well, the actress took two of the most popular comicbook movies as the benchmark: “I think on a scale of like, Dark Knight is here and Avengers is here, I think it’s more on the Dark Knight side of things.”

Given the tone of Man of Steel, this is no great surprise because it seems clear that DC are going for a slightly darker and more realistic approach (yes, really).

Excited doesn’t even begin to describe our feelings…

Thanks to Margot Robbie – Harley Quinn for the art

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
