Squad Tried Harley Quinn’s Original Outfit

Though many are keen to see it, one of the few complaints that has been lobbed against David Ayer’s “Suicide Squad” film has been that of the design of Harley Quinn’s costume.

Many were hoping we’d get the jester-style look seen in “Batman: The Animated Series” where the character was created, instead we got the more hot pants and leggings-style outfit seen in such things as the “Batman: Arkham” video games.

Turns out though they apparently did test out actress Margot Robbie in the classic outfit. Speaking with Hello Giggles about her costume, she revealed:

“I cannot emphasize enough how many outfits, and how many variations of the Harley Quinn costume we tried. We tried the court jester costume, we tried the corset and skirt, we tried leather pants, we tried literally every type of costume possible for her. I really love where we ended up. And who knows, maybe in the sequels we’ll go with the court jester one. I think there’s a world of possibilities.”

“Suicide Squad” hits cinemas on August 5th.
