By now there’s no denying Suicide Squad had a troubled production, from the supposed interference of Warner Bros. to a lot of Joker footage left on the cutting room floor. Another scene that didn’t make the final cut is Margot Robbie’s Harley Quinn looking at her New 52 costume.
During a sequence that see’s the Suicide Squad suit up before being sent to Midway City, Harley opens up her chest of belongings and finds her classic jester outfit and trademark mallet in the theatrical cut. In one of the trailers for the movie, as spotted by Redactor NoSleepVia (via CBR) Harley also finds her New 52 costume, the red and blue corset. Director David Ayer has stated that he drew inspiration for Harley’s ‘Daddy’s L’il Monster’ ensemble from the character’s New 52 costume. Its incorporation would have been a nod to that no doubt. However, instead they favoured the famous jester outfit, which we knew before the film released would make an appearance.
Suicide Squad is in cinemas now.
“It feels good to be bad…Assemble a team of the world’s most dangerous, incarcerated Super Villains, provide them with the most powerful arsenal at the government’s disposal, and send them off on a mission to defeat an enigmatic, insuperable entity. U.S. intelligence officer Amanda Waller has determined only a secretly convened group of disparate, despicable individuals with next to nothing to lose will do. However, once they realize they weren’t picked to succeed but chosen for their patent culpability when they inevitably fail, will the Suicide Squad resolve to die trying, or decide it’s every man for himself?”
