The Margot Corner
- -

On August 25, the “Suicide Squad” premiered in Japan. For the occasion, Margot did a photo call and a couple of interviews in Tokyo before the big main event! Photos have began to surface, and I have added a few to our gallery; 4 of which are in HQ.

Since all the interviews are in Japanese, I am having difficulties translating them. If there’s anyone who could help, please get in touch! We would love to have these translated to English. A couple of points have been written below though, and hopefully we’ll have the full interviews soon. The two original articles/interviews can be found here and here. (Both in Japanese)

  • Margot says she both could and wants to play the character Harley Quinn forever.
  • When asked if she used any characters as “reference” when portraying Harley, Margot says she mostly used the original comics more than anything.
  • She says one of the biggest issues with her sexy costume, was that it was very difficult to hide all her bruises in it. She did most of her stunts by herself, which resulted in a lot of marks on her body.
  • Margot started preparing for the role 6 months before they started working, working out with a personal trainer every day, a jiu-jitsu trainer 3 times a week and gun-practice every other day.
  • When asked about her beauty and work out routines, Margot states that after the tough training program ahead of this film, she doesn’t want to work out at all for a long time. But she still has to, as she’s playing sktater Tonya Harding up next, and needs to be in shape for it. She does not follow any restricted diets, though.

Hello Margot fans! Thanks to my friend Jenna, our gallery has now been updated with two additional outtakes from the ‘Spur’ Tokyo photoshoot Margot did while they were promoting ‘Suicide Squad’ in Japan. I have also replaced one of our previous photos with one in better quality. She was photographed by Masakazu Sugino, and she looked fantastic! You can find all 4 images in our gallery…

Movie Pilot – The Suicide Squad train came and went, and while for many people the film didn’t live up to the hype, it has still made a significant amount of money for Warner Bros. with $640.1 million dollars before crawling to the finish line. So, it was no surprise when David Ayer let it slip that Suicide Squad 2 was in the planning stages.

Not only is a sequel very much in play, but Ayer has also shown interest in having the film be R-Rated. An R-rated Suicide Squad was something that people were expecting for the first film’s outing, but David Ayer explained how that wasn’t going to be possible: “For an R movie, you have to decide to do it right out the gate, and that was never the case here. We were always going to hit the PG-13 rating. But the film is meant to be that. It’s got edge, and it’s got attitude. And it’s got its own voice… There’s a lot in the film that’s going to surprise people.”

The Wrap reported that David Ayers next directing venture Bright would star Deadshot himself, Will Smith, and that it is purposely being fitting into each of their schedules in order to make sure they are free to film the Suicide Squad sequel.

Where does this leave arguably the most influential character from the movies, Harley Quinn though? Margot Robbie has of course yet to be confirmed for the sequel, but is it really much of a question that she will return?

The Suicide Squad marketing team went out of their way to make sure that fans got as much Harley as possible. She was featured heavily in ads leading up to the release of the film and since the film hit theaters, her merchandise has only doubled.

This marketing was not all the filmmakers did to push the envelope of just how important Harley Quinn is to Suicide Squad. Her character was featured more then any other character in the film aside from Deadshot, and she was the focal point for most of the film. It would be madness if Warner Bros. actually were to leave her out of a potential sequel.

While we have no idea what will happen in the DCEU between now and then, or where Harley Quinn will be by the time Suicide Squad 2 comes out, I’m sure the writers will find a way to conveniently fit her into the movie and return to wreak havoc — in a good way — for Amanda Waller.

The Aussie lights up the screen in ‘Suicide Squad’ as Harley Quinn, and has fast emerged as one of the most magnetic presences in the game.

This is not that cringeworthy Vanity Fair Margot Robbie profile. It will not try to decipher what specific sort of “beautiful” the 26-year-old actress is, nor will it attempt to relate her appeal to the differences between her native Australia and America (either in its current or 50-years-ago iteration). It will not be flirty or gossipy or go overboard in describing her physical attributes, which can be gleaned from spending three seconds looking at any of the internet’s millions of photographs of her. It will not make you think that, first and foremost, I am writing about her while drool accumulates in the corner of my mouth.

No, this is a Margot Robbie feature that has come to sing her praises as an actress—or, more accurate still, as a bona fide Movie Star: a status which will be solidified this Friday, when her latest, Suicide Squad, arrives in theaters. As anyone who’s been subjected to that project’s endless promotional assault knows by now, David Ayers’s film is a DC Comics venture in which a ruthless government bigwig (Viola Davis) assembles “the worst of the worst” to pull off a do-or-die mission. This gang of baddies includes Will Smith’s Deadshot, Jai Courtney’s Boomerang, Jay Hernandez’s El Diablo, and Cara Delevingne’s Enchantress, all of whom eventually cross paths with Jared Leto as Batman’s archnemesis, The Joker. Nonetheless, they’re all peripheral to Robbie, who dons clown makeup and short shorts, puts her white-with-purple-ends hair into ponytails, and wields a baseball bat as the Joker’s psychiatrist turned girlfriend Harley Quinn – and promptly steals the spotlight as the star of the show, if not the summer.

Harley Quinn is a psychotic femme fatale who talks in a baby-doll New Yawk accent, and her look—high heels, fishnet stockings, a ratty T-shirt that screams “Daddy’s Lil’ Monster,” and a shiny red jacket—will undoubtedly be ubiquitous this Halloween, as it’s tailor-made for the type of racy women’s costume that gives night terrors to fathers with teen daughters. The character’s buoyant lunatic eroticism is key to her allure, and there’s no more compelling image in Suicide Squad than that of Robbie’s bad girl strutting through urban ruin, a Louisville Slugger across her shoulders, a bubblegum bubble popping between her red lipstick-smeared lips, and a deviant smile spread across her pale face. “We’re bad guys, that’s what we do,” she tells her righteous military handler Rick Flag (Joel Kinnaman) after he complains about her casually robbing a store, and in just about every one of her scenes, Robbie brings a jolt of exuberant aberrant mischievousness to the proceedings, cackling and cracking skulls with gleeful abandon.

Entertainment News Online recently did a story about the permanent tattoos Margot inked on her Suicide Squad co-stars! Read about it below.

The Suicide Squad cast had an intense bonding experience when Margot Robbie showed up on set with a tattoo gun, giving most of her co-stars a permanent memento of the movie.

“Picture what a 4-year-old would draw and stick it on your fridge. That’s kind of one of my tattoos,” Robbie told ET. “Like little stick figures.”

Cara Delevingne, 23, was one of the people who offered their body as Robbie’s canvas, but she also returned the favor.

“I tattooed her toes and she tattooed mine as well,” Delevingne said.

One person who didn’t take part in getting inked was Will Smith. “I’m a grown-a** man,” Smith said with a laugh. “Margot comes bounding into work with all of her 24-year-old glory like, ‘Guys! Guys! I got a tattoo gun! I got a tattoo gun! We’re all getting tattoos!’ I was like, ‘No, we’re not.'”

In Suicide Squad, some of the world’s most notorious supervillains are recruited by the government to execute dangerous black ops missions in exchange for clemency. What makes it different from other comic book movies is that there are, in fact, no good guys.

Characters include Deadshot (Smith), the world’s deadliest and most accurate marksman, Joker (Jared Leto), Batman’s arch nemesis, Harley Quinn (Robbie), the Joker’s psychotic sidekick and lover, and Dr. Amanda Waller (Viola Davis), the head of the top secret group formed by the government to create a counterforce to the Justice League should they go rogue.

Davis was a no-brainer to play Waller, as the role is not unlike her How to Get Away With Murder character, Annalise Keating. But Davis says Waller is even more hard-nosed.

“Amanda Waller would whoop Annalise’s behind,” Davis said. “[Annalise] drinks too much vodka.”

Suicide Squad opens in theaters on Friday.
