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
