Margot Robbie Talks About ‘Suicide Squad’ Role
According to Comicbook.com, Margot Robbie revealed that her character, Harley Quinn, in DC’s upcoming “Suicide Squad” pic will have a Brooklyn Accent. Read on for more details of this story.
In a report from Comicbook.com, Robbie spoke to SuperHeroHype during her appearance at the Sundance Film Festival for her new movie “Z for Zachariah.” Robbie hinted that Harley Quinn will have a Brooklyn accent, which was similar to her character in “The Wolf of Wall Street.”
“None of those things have been set in stone at this point, but according to the comics, she’s from New York and I think Brooklyn, so there may be a slight… I couldn’t imagine it would be as strong as The Wolf of Wall Street accent, the lingo will be the difference between that and the other character I played in ‘Wolf’ but I don’t know yet. We haven’t spoken about it,” Robbie explained.
Moreover, Robbie admits that she felt nervous about playing Quinn while speaking with MTV News.
“Yeah, I guess it’s intimidating because there’s obviously a lot of people I want to please, and a character I have to do justice, but it’s a challenge, I’m definitely up for it, and hopefully I don’t disappoint,” Robbie shared.

“Suicide Squad,” also known as “Task Force X,” is an antihero team of incarcerated supervillains who act as deniable assets for the United States government, undertaking high-risk black ops missions in exchange for commuted prison sentences. The group operates out of Belle Reve Penitentiary, under the directorship of Dr. Amanda Waller. In the graphic novels, the most common members of Suicide Squad include Bronze Tiger and Deadshot, although Batman villain Quinn has become the face of the group since the launch of the New 52. The group was also featured in an episode on The CW’s “Arrow.”
Ayer, who also wrote the screenplay for “Suicide Squad,” is tied to direct the pic. Ayer is known for his work in “Training Day” as a writer, as well as directing the recent war pic “Fury,” which stars Brad Pitt, Shia LaBeouf and Logan Lerman. “Suicide Squad” launches their attack on the big screens on Aug. 5, 2016.
