I’m not a huge fan of superhero movies. Christopher Nolan’s The Dark Knight along with Heath Ledger‘s haunting Joker, and Christian Bale‘s anti-hero Batman pretty much defined superhero movies for me. It honestly was one of the best movies of all time.
I am not particularly looking forward to the upcoming Suicide Squad coming out in 2016. I’m not so sure about Jared Leto’s 30-Seconds-to-Mars Joker and especially not sure about Ben Affleck‘s effeminate nipple-clad Batman. However, I will definitely watch the movie for one reason and one reason only… Margot Robbie is the new Harley Quinn.
There have been many visually iconic female characters throughout Hollywood’s history. Matilda from Leon/The Professional. Princess Leia from Star Wars. Holly Golightly from Breakfast at Tiffany’s. They are arguably more memorable than the movies they appeared in. Okay, maybe not for Star Wars.
But most recently, the internet went berserk when Warner Brothers leaked behind-the-scenes images of their upcoming 2016 movie Suicide Squad. In it, is the gorgeous Margot Robbie who plays the deliciously devilish Harley Quinn.
Inspired by her character’s costume design and naughty panache, we set out to recreate our own Dr. Harleen F. Quinzel on the streets of LA with one of our favorite models, Peyton Lake. We bring you along our shoot in this photo essay.
