Another leaked photo image has emerged from the Suicide Squad set and, quite honestly, few people really believe its 100% genuine. More than likely, someone at D.C. Entertainment and Warner Bros. is orchestrating the leaks and we do not know for sure they reflect what The Joker will really look like. In the first photo, we saw Jared Leto as a weirdly tattooed Joker. Now, we see Margot Robbie in full (cool) Harley Quinn makeup actually applying the tattoo ink to the Clown Prince of Crime’s back.
Mikal Watts says that again, the photos may or may not be legitimate. Either way, the images do bring forth some interesting questions about the characters.
Is it really that big of a deal Harley Quinn is the person who inks the tattoos on The Joker? In a weak script or under a hack director’s helm, no. It would just be a weak gimmick that adds a little shock value to the film. Under the very capable hands of those crafting Suicide Squad, the notion Harley Quinn is the artist behind the tattoos, well, this means a lot.
Delving into the bizarre relationship between the obsessed Harley Quinn with her paramour, The Joker, not only establishes the villainess as someone unique, a new dimension is added to “Mr. J.”
All of this contributes to Suicide Squad and further appearances of The Joker and Harley Quinn very interesting. Actually, all of the D.C. movies are shaping up to be extremely interesting.
