Will Smith & Margot Robbie On SUICIDE SQUAD Character Development And David Ayer's Secrecy

Will Smith differentiates 'Deadshot' from his Hancock and Focus characters while also chatting alongside 'Harley Quinn' Margot Robbie about prepping for Suicide Squad and more. Check it out!



Promotional duties for the upcoming Focus movie have provided a great leeway for reporters to potentially get new Suicide Squad details from stars Margot Robbie and Will Smith, who will be playing Harley Quinn and Deadshot, respectively, in the 2016 DC Comics adaptation. During the recent Focus press conference, Flicks and the City asked the duo how much are they looking forward to reuniting on the project, and also how will their supervillains' relationship differ from their characters' in Focus. "I'm really looking forward to it," said Margot before Will chimed in, "I'm looking forward to it too, but I don't know what it's going to be character-wise." Margot then added, "We don't know what our characters' relationship is really gonna be [because] it's ever-changing." Will Smith proceeded, offering praise for Suicide Squad director/writer David Ayer. "It's really cool, the way that David Ayer works," said the actor. "It's all images, all ideas, and he holds the screenplay [pretty close] and he just keeps sending you things about your character. He just wants you to be prepared for anything." After reassuring that Harley Quin and Deadshot will be allies in the movie, both actors admitted that they don't know about Suicide Squad... yet. "We're not being secretive, we just actually don't know," said Margot Robbie, as Will Smith added that "[Ayer] only sends your character's stuff so you don't know what's going on with the other characters; I think he wants it to come alive on set." Later during the press conference, Will Smith was asked how Deadshot differs from his Hancock superhero, as well as his Focus character.

"I guess I like the concept of dubious morals," he started. "I always liked to play in that area [...]. With Suicide Squad, we just started on that. I think I haven't explored the psychology enough of Deadshot, somebody who could take money to kill people; how he justifies that for himself. So, I still have a little bit of work to do on that, but in my life in general and in my career, those are the type of roles that I'm pushing more towards; those kinds of questions." What do you think?





Directed David Ayer from his screenplay, Suicide Squad stars Will Smith (Deadshot), Tom Hardy (Rick Flag), Jared Leto (the Joker), Margot Robbie (Harley Quinn), Jai Courtney (Boomerang), with Cara Delevingne (Enchantress), and Jessie Eisenberg (Lex Luther). The film opens August 5, 2016!
