Paul Dini Talks Harley Quinn and SUICIDE SQUAD

Categories Uncategorized

 Since the initial announcement last year of the coming DC
Extended Universe almost no character has been in the spotlight quite as much
or quite as intensely as Harley Quinn. 
The psychotic psychiatrist is well loved, despite being one of the
newest characters in the DC Universe and the podcast; Shanlian
On Batman
went straight to the source to discuss her film
future.

Upon learning of
Harley Quinn’s part in Suicide Squad
she has been eagerly anticipated and worried about in equal measure.  Fans are incredibly excited to see her but
equally concerned with getting the character right for her first film
foray.  

 

When asked what he thought of the changes made to his and
Bruce Timm’s design, Dini said that while the change from the original is “jarring to a lot of the people who love
the classic Bruce Timm suit, I love it myself. But in that world, I just don’t
see it happening. It’s a rougher, more street look. I think it works fine.

After saying that she had “very much a real world look,” Dini praised Leto’s Joker as “almost like a decadent rockstarand there’s a little bit of Sid and Nancy to
the Joker and Harley look, which I always felt would not be a bad look if they
were in a live-action movie.

Dini also had kind things to say about Robbie as an
actress.  “I think Margot is very nice, she’s a very wonderful actress, certainly
very attractive and very talented. I’m very excited to see that interpretation
of Harley.

Lastly, Dini spoke of the prospect of seeing his creation
hitting the big screen: “I
created her, but on the other hand… I can’t get too possessive over that.
It’ll be fun, it’ll be fun to see what they
do with her.
