There was a time when it seemed as if Margot Robbie’s Harley Quinn was going to face proper alongside Gal Gadot’s Marvel Lady because the DCEU’s marquee feminine character, as she was one of many major promoting factors of David Ayer’s Suicide Squad and had lots of hype build up behind her franchise debut.
Sadly, nevertheless, the disappointing response from each followers and critics in the direction of that movie compelled Warner Bros. to shift gears, with Jared Leto’s Joker quietly being swept beneath the rug (till lately, no less than, on condition that he’s now returning for Zack Snyder’s Justice League). In fact, Robbie obtained to steer her personal superhero blockbuster, however the outcomes have been underwhelming. Birds of Prey did pretty effectively with critiques, however a worldwide tally of solely $201 million means it’s formally the lowest-grossing entry within the DCEU.
Regardless of this, James Gunn’s The Suicide Squad is now hoping to thrust Harley Quinn firmly again into the highlight, and the director has now shared two new Empire journal covers which provide up a have a look at the character’s up to date costume, which we first noticed again at DC FanDome.
In fact, a contemporary wardrobe doesn’t essentially imply that Harleen Quinzel is all the sudden going to seek out herself again on the forefront of the DCEU following the movie’s debut, however it’s clear that Warner Bros. hasn’t given up on her simply but and with a bit of luck, Gunn’s film will assist gentle a spark beneath her once more and recapture a few of that reputation that she was using heading into Suicide Squad again in 2016.
Regardless, The Suicide Squad actually seems to be a step up from its predecessor and is undoubtedly one of many DCEU’s most fun upcoming initiatives. And we’ll get to see it for ourselves when it drops into theaters on August sixth, 2021.
