Margot Robbie has teased that The Suicide Squad features “one of the most difficult things” she’s ever filmed.

The actor will reprise her role as Harley Quinn in the upcoming movie, which will be directed by James Gunn.

Appearing during a DC FanDome Q&A, the star was asked what the toughest scene to film in The Suicide Squad was. “I don’t want to give it away,” she replied. “When you watch the movie, it’s probably about halfway through.

There’s an insane sequence that Harley does which was one of the most difficult things I’ve ever shot onscreen. And we shot it in like four days and I remember looking at the schedule and being like ‘Oh my god, we’re not going to be able to do this. This is gonna be impossible.’”

Robbie added that although she was “really beat up” at the end of it, Gunn had later texted her to say it “looks amazing”. “That whole sequence apparently looks really cool, so when you see the movie, you’ll know exactly what I’m talking about,” she said.

The Suicide Squad will also star Idris Elba, Viola Davis, Pete Davidson, John Cena, Sean Gunn, Mayling Ng and more. It is currently scheduled for release on August 6, 2021.

Meanwhile, Suicide Squad director David Ayer recently acknowledged issues with his portrayal of Harley Quinn in the 2016 movie. The filmmaker had responded after a viewer called out the sexualisation of the character, saying her story arc had been “eviscerated” and that “everything is political”.

Another Twitter user then replied, telling him: “The way your camera looked at her was political. The way you used her was political. You treated her as an object and she still rose above it. That was political too.

Hugh Jackman and Margot Robbie are among several celebrities announced as ambassadors for a new anti-racism campaign, DoMore, launching in Australia today (August 26).

According to a press release, the DoMore campaign is “a call to action for all Australians to be allies”.

The DoMore Australia launch video features personal messages from other ambassadors, including NBA star Ben Simmons, actors Miranda Tapsell and Samara Weaving, tennis icon Nick Kyrgios and more, who address the Australian community at large.

We can all make changes in our everyday lives – it’s about listening, understanding, doing your research and learning about others’ experiences,” Simmons said. “Putting that into action and doing more to stop racism is something all Australians can play a part in.

Watch the DoMore launch video below:

The goal of DoMore is to amplify current discussions around racism and the impact it can have, and encourage positive change from those conversations. In engaging with more BIPOC and listening to other people’s stories, DoMore hopes to “create tangible change and shape a better future for all”.

New videos will be uploaded weekly to the DoMore website, featuring interviews that document real-life experiences from Australians from different backgrounds. These stories are made to “encourage active participation in the name of anti-racism”.

While the first Suicide Squad movie was a financial success, it was critically panned. However, what most people could agree with was that Margot Robbie’s Harley Quinn was the real star. And while most of the anti-hero team has been swapped out for the new James Gunn directed sequel, The Suicide Squad, Margot Robbie and Harley Quinn will be back. Having said that, Margot Robbie makes it sound like we’ll see a somewhat different Harley in the new movie. One that we haven’t really seen before.

In response to a fan question posted to Twitter ahead of this weekend’s DC Fandome event, Margot Robbie says that The Suicide Squad will reveal new sides to Harley Quinn because the situation that Harley will find herself in, and the people she’ll be in that situation with, will cause her to respond in ways we’ve never seen before. According to Robbie…

I always have such a ball playing Harley Quinn. Every time I’ve done it I’ve learned new things about her, and this movie is no different. When Harleys put in different group of people and put in a different place you’re going to see different aspects of her personality come out depending on how she feels about those people and what she’s doing. You get to see a new side of Harley again and she’s in a new group of people, a big group of people. And it’s insane, as always. It’s crazy fun.

As Margot Robbie points out, The Suicide Squad has a massive group of people involved. The cast list seemingly goes on forever. And almost all of them are new to the franchise. We don’t even know for sure who everybody is even playing, so it’s essentially impossible to even guess what we’re in for.

Margot Robbie says that Harley’s reaction to The Suicide Squad is based on how she feels about the other characters as well as the mission the team will be going on. While the first Suicide Squad saw everybody more or less unite behind the mission, despite the fact everybody was forced into it (that’s sort of the deal with the Suicide Squad) it will be interesting to see how things differ this time around. Will Harley actually embrace this mission? Will there be members of the team that simply do not get along at all? There are all sorts of interesting dynamics that could develop.

We’ll probably get something of an idea of how all the pieces fit together in The Suicide Squad this weekend during DC Fandome. The Suicide Squad is currently just about one year away, and while there’s going to be plenty of post-production work left to do, one expects we’ll get a little bit of footage and some details about the story. Just enough to start to get people excited. And that footage will probably include more than a little Harley Quinn.
