The world of cinema is full of some pretty epic pairings - Thelma and Louise, Batman and Robin, Harry Potter and...Harley Quinn? Despite both films being property of Warner Bros, we doubt 'The Boy Who Lived' and 'The Clown Princess of Crime' will be meeting anytime soon. However, it was full on 'squad goals' over the weekend as Margot Robbie and Ben Affleck 'pottered' on down to London's Palace Theatre to indulge in some magic. Could Harley be swapping 'damaged' tattoos for lightning-shaped scars?

The pair of muggles reunited in the audience of blockbuster play Harry Potter and the Cursed Child. Somewhere amongst the madness of tickets for the sell-out show, it looks like the Suicide Squad alumni managed to nab themselves some seats - well, the Caped Crusader is pretty well connected.

The Cursed Child Facebook group shared the picture of their A-List audience, which also included Potter-fan and Glee actor Darren Criss, and Affleck's 10-year-old daughter Violet. Affleck was in town to film his scenes for Zack Snyder's upcoming Justice League film, but appeared to be totally under the spell of Harry Potter's play. However, it looks like that young Violet isn't the only magic-mad-muggle.

Speaking to Jimmy Kimmel, Margot Robbie revealed that a young Harley Quinn was in fact a huge Potter-head, as the presenter shared a candid shot of the actress:

Literally the most embarrassing photo of my whole life...clearly really enjoying myself reading Harry Potter, I have braces which I had for two years. I was really into slicking my hair back, god knows why...and I'm wearing glasses which I didn't actually need. I had 20/20 vision and I lied to get glasses so I could look like Harry Potter.

The play — which is based on J.K. Rowling's Potterverse — picks up 19 years after the end of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. Due to high demand and tickets selling out within minutes, the play extended its original run from September this year to January 2017. Whilst classed as the eighth story in the series, only the stage script for The Cursed Child has been released . Wouldn't it have been great if that was a limited edition that Harley was reading in her cell?
