Harley Quinn steals more than the spotlight in new ‘Suicide Squad’ promo

Suicide Squad hasn’t premiered yet, but it is clear that Harley Quinn — played by Margot Robbie — will be a force to be reckoned with. In a new promo released by Warner Bros. on Wednesday, the villain shows off her oddball sense of humor and crazy skills with a baseball bat. The character may look sweet, but she can definitely hold her own.

As in previous trailers, Harley Quinn provides comic relief in the dark superhero film. Her character has a penchant for one-liners and likes to get a rise out of people. She gets serious when she needs to, though, namely when it comes time to take on bad guys.

In the upcoming film, Harley Quinn is one of a group of imprisoned supervillains who are offered clemency — as long as they can save the day. The ragtag gang has to learn how to ignore their villainous tendencies and play the hero, which doesn’t necessarily come easily to them. As we see in the trailer, Harley Quinn can’t resist a chance to steal from a store they pass by.

From what we’ve seen so far, Robbie’s Harley Quinn seems to be a scene-stealer, even when she’s sharing the screen with respected actors like Will Smith and Jared Leto (as Deadshot and The Joker, respectively). Not only does the character warrant her own promo, Warner Bros. is reportedly already working on a Suicide Squad spinoff that would center on her. Robbie is said to have become very invested in DC Comics’ female characters and has been one of the project’s driving forces.

Suicide Squad is tracking well for Warner Bros. so far and could even break an August opening record. We’ll see how the supervillains fare when the David Ayer-directed film opens on August 5.
