Many may already be aware that Margot Robbie and Will Smith have great chemistry, as seen in their first film together, Focus. The two play off each other wonderfully, and set photos have shown the connection between the two may carry over into Suicide Squad as well. While we haven’t seen Harley and Deadshot interacting much in the trailers, the film’s latest photo showcases the two offering each other smiles.
The image, pictured below, was featured in an L.A. Times article where the film editor, Marc Bernardin, and Hero Complex editor, Meredity Werner, discussed their most highly-anticipated summer movies.
Are these sly smiles, flirty smiles, or “hey, that was awesome, let’s do it again” smiles? It isn’t exactly clear, but one thing is for sure — they still look great together. If they are flirty, it wouldn’t be too surprising. Harley and Deadshot have had love affairs in the comics and in the animated Arkhamverse film, Batman: Assault on Arkham. Plus, a love triangle between Harley, Deadshot, and Joker sounds like a great way to bring even more tension to an already incredibly intense film.
If Robbie’s recent comments on her character’s love for the Joker are to be believed, the affair could get complex in foreseeable, yet unforeseeable, ways. Check out Suicide Squad’s latest trailer below and let us know your thoughts on the deadly love triangle that could be potentially brewing.
Suicide Squad hits theaters on August 5.
