THE SUICIDE SQUAD Director James Gunn Reveals INJUSTICE-Inspired Harley Quinn Concept Art

Ahead of The Suicide Squad's Blu-ray release, director James Gunn has shared a new batch of concept art for the DC Comics movie featuring a closer look at early designs for Margot Robbie's Harley Quinn.

If the likes Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings and Venom: Let There Be Carnage have proved anything, it's that the best possible way to release movies - even in this "pandemic era" - is in theaters. The Suicide Squad, on the other hand, bombed thanks to its HBO Max debut the same day it arrived in multiplexes (there were other reasons, but that was one of the biggest). 

A spinoff TV series, Peacemaker, is heading to the streaming service, but a direct sequel seems unlikely all things considered. Despite that, it appears James Gunn could remain a recurring presence in the DC Extended Universe, and the filmmaker has made no secret of his interest in a Harley Quinn spinoff.

If this project came to pass, it would reunite Gunn with Margot Robbie, and the writer and director has now shared some new concept art featuring various designs for Harley's appearance in The Suicide Squad. He also confirmed, "The beach uniform was inspired by her outfit in the Injustice 2 video game."

Hopefully, more concept art from the movie will be revealed soon as we'd love to see early designs for characters like Peacemaker, King Shark, and Bloodsport given how unique they looked in live-action.

The Suicide Squad was directed by James Gunn from his own screenplay and stars Margot Robbie, Idris Elba, John Cena, Joel Kinnaman, Jai Courtney, Peter Capaldi, David Dastmalchian, Daniela Melchior, Michael Rooker, Alice Braga, and Pete Davidson. The Blu-ray will be released on October 26, 2021.
