Robbie, Davis Talk “Suicide Squad” Roles

With filming officially wrapped on Warners and DC’s upcoming “Suicide Squad” movie, the film’s director David Ayer has posted wrap photos on his Twitter account of much of the cast and crew who worked on the film. You can check that out below.

The picture comes as actress Viola Davis has spoken about the film and working with Ayer, saying that though it has an unusual schedule, she thinks what they’ve done so far is pretty amazing. She tells Deadline:

“I have one more day, which I’m flying out for this weekend. I’ve been working on the film since April 1st. It sounds like a lot, but I haven’t been working every day. I haven’t done a lot of comic book movies, actually I’ve done none! DC Comics have a tendency to have darker characters. You know, Batman is a darker character, Harley Quinn, the Joker, and what David Ayer has managed to do is humanize them. I think that you see it in the trailer too – just something different about it that makes you lean in.”

What he’s explored is the pathology behind all of these characters, so you just get that extra spin that gives you the flavor and a look which is very different. And at the same time you get all the stuff that you’ve gotten before, which is the action, the special effects, the great makeup. I’m blown away by the movie. Once I saw the trailer, I was like, ‘Oh, my God. He really is a magician.’ I mean, I had no idea. So, it’s been a real pleasure working on it with David Ayer.”

Her co-star Margot Robbie has also spoken about the film and her work as Harley Quinn playing opposite Jared Leto as the Joker. She tells The Daily News that Leto gives a “pretty impressive” performance and was actually intimidating to film with:

“What he’s doing with the character is so cool. At first it was kind of confronting (to be up close , but now I’m so used to it, I think if I ever saw him out of makeup now I would be really confused. Actually, I saw him out of makeup once and I was actually petrified of him. I was too scared to go up and didn’t know who that person was, and when he got back into his makeup I was far more comfortable.

The one common denominator is we’re all bad guys, it just makes everything more fun that way. The scenes are more interesting I feel, when you just don’t know how the characters are going to react, especially with Harley, who’s absolutely nuts… she’s either going to kill you or laugh and give you a hug.”

“Suicide Squad” opens in cinemas on August 5th 2016.
