We all have seen the countless set pictures of Margot Robbie as Harley Quinn in Suicide Squad and she has looked great. One of the very first articles I wrote for Moviepilot was why Margot Robbie may be perfect for the role and I more than convinced now that she will do an outstanding job. While everyone is focusing on Batman, Superman, The Joker and other characters, I believe Margot Robbie's Harley Quinn will put DC movies over the top and possibly give them an edge over Marvel films. Yes, I believe that Margot Robbie's Harley Quinn may be the most important character in the DCCU so hear me out.
Harley Quinn gives women a strong female lead to root for!
The age old stereotype that comic books are for "Boys" is wrong and should be long gone from people's minds. Most characters within the comic book community are men but as the times have changed we are now seeing more and more women superheros being introduced. Marvel's main female lead in the movies is Black Widow and she hasn't really connected with female fans as much as one would have hoped. Harley Quinn is arguably the greatest female character in comics ever. Harley is crazy but she sure is a bad-ass! I think Margot Robbie will bring her always strong, female presence on screen and express that greatly through Harley Quinn. She will definitely connect with female fans on a much more personal level and her performance will leave both male and female viewers with a big smile on their face. Harley Quinn will attract even more female viewers, something Marvel struggles to do at times, and of course guys love them some Margot Robbie and that is why she may play the most important role for DC at the moment.
She is made for the role!
Margot Robbie in my opinion is the absolute perfect person to play the role of Harley Quinn. Her whole demeanor just screams crazy and damaged and her performance will feel very believable and authentic. Harley Quinn is one of the hardest characters to pull off and if anyone can do it, Margot Robbie sure can. She has really blossomed into one of Hollywood's leading actresses and Harley could really catapult her already illustrious career into stardom. I must admit that I am a bit of a fanboy of Margot Robbie but I don't think I'm overly subjective on my opinion of her casting. Robbie's ability to put on such a sweet and innocent face when truly she will rip you to shreds is something very uncommonly found, and is a skill that is direly needed if one is to even think of tackling the role of Harley Quinn.
