MTV’s Josh Horowitz caught up with Margot Robbie while she was promoting her new movie Focus, but naturally, Suicide Squad came up as well. When asked what the audition process was like, Robbie revealed that she didn’t even need to audition for the role of Harley Quinn! “I actually got offered this one, I didn’t audition, which is a real step up as an actor when you can get offered things,” Robbie said.
Robbie said that Harley Quinn and Deadshot have a lot of scenes together in Suicide Squad. Luckily, Deadshot is being played by Will Smith, Robbie’s Focus co-star. From the trailers, it looks like they’ll have great chemistry together.
Robbie also explained that Suicide Squad will be more like The Dark Knight in terms of being grounded in reality, and less fantastical like The Avengers. “I think on a scale of like, ‘Dark Knight’ is here and ‘Avengers’ is here, I think it’s more on the ‘Dark Knight’ side of things,” she said.
