You know I really miss all the leaked pictures from Suicide Squad thanks to the locals in Toronto. It was either bad security or excellent advertising by Warner Bros but either way those pictures and videos got me really excited about the Suicide Squad movie. Well, finally after a well accepted Comic Con teaser trailer we are getting more Suicide Squad and we have Empire Magazine to thank. Once again Jared Leto's Joker has been the topic of conversation and as you can see it's with good reason.
Jared Leto's Joker
And while new pictures of Jared Leto's Joker has dominated headlines; we may have learned more about Margot Robbie's Harley Quinn from the pictures that were shared in Empire. It looks like we may get a comic book inspired origin story of Harley Quinn in the new Suicide Squad movie.

For those that didn't know Harley Quinn actually was introduced to Joker as his Arkham Asylum psychiatrist. At the time she was known as Dr. Harleen Frances Quinzel, M.D, And the above picture seems to be paying homage to the Harley Quinn origin story and specifically the New 52 Harley origin story that was told in the New Suicide Squad comic book.

Dr. Harleen Frances Quinzel was originally introduced in the Batman animated series but the pictures released of the Doctor and Joker reminded me of the Harley Quinn origin story from the New Suicide Squad. With this being a Suicide Squad movie it makes sense for David Ayer, the director of Suicide Squad, to adapt Harley's origin from the comic book. And we should be expecting a comic book accurate Suicide Squad movie as Ayer has already let us know via twitter that this movie would be canon.

There are definite similarities in the picture of Dr. Quinzel and Joker from the movie and the frame from the comic book. But will it be an exact adaptation? Do we want an exact adaptation? Before answering that question check out the Harley Quinn origin story from the New 52 Suicide Squad comic book.
