Not only did Harley Quinn become an instant fan favorite following her debut on Batman: The Animated Series, but she quickly became an iconic villain, and it wasn’t long before she transitioned to the pages of DC Comics. While most fans agree that Margot Robbie is the perfect choice for the role in Suicide Squad, there’s been much less agreement over her wardrobe — or lack thereof — in David Ayer’s upcoming film. Robbie herself has officially chimed in, offering her thoughts on Harley’s controversial fashion choices.

Not long after the negative reviews and underwhelming box office returns for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice began rolling in, so did some interesting reports from Warner Bros. One of those reports suggested that David Ayer is doing some reshoots on Suicide Squad to make the film more humorous — a direct response to criticisms of Zack Snyder’s bleak superhero epic. According to Jai Courtney, who plays Captain Boomerang in the upcoming anti-hero team-up, that’s not accurate…but it’s also what you might expect him to say.

While most fans can agree that Suicide Squad looks like a fairly entertaining antidote to the usual blockbuster superhero fare, at least one part of David Ayer’s super-villain team-up remains divisive. You already know which part that is: Jared Leto’s tattooed, chrome-grilled Hot Topic take on Batman’s arch-nemesis The Joker, aka the Clown Prince of Crime. However you feel about Leto’s Joker aesthetic, it’s certainly different from and incomparable to any previous iteration of the character — though Leto does have a couple of wacky comparisons in mind.

Earlier this month, news broke that Netflix was negotiating exclusive rights to Bright, a new fantasy action thriller that will reunite director David Ayer with Suicide Squad star Will Smith. The new film from American Ultra screenwriter Max Landis is Netflix’s biggest deal so far, nabbing a $90 million budget that could have some interesting implications for the streaming giant, particularly since most theater chains won’t screen films that don’t honor the typical 90-day window between theatrical and home / streaming release.

It is indeed Valentine’s Day, the most romantic / nauseating / corporate holiday, depending on how you feel about it. For the less conventional among you, Margot Robbie has shared a new Suicide Squad poster capitalizing on the holiday and pulling double duty as a deranged Valentine’s Day card, celebrating the kind of sick love that only Harley Quinn and the Joker (and hopefully no one else, ever) could share.

Rather than debut a TV spot or a new teaser, Warner Bros. has unleashed its first non-trailer promo for Suicide Squad via Instagram — you know, because that’s where all the cool kids are these days, and Suicide Squad is a movie for cool kids who take 800 selfies and have a Hot Topic frequent shopper card and an ironic appreciation of Jared Leto’s Joker sporting a grill. Does David Ayer’s super villain movie have a type? Not really, but it’s fun to guess.
