Paul Dini Has No Issue With Margot Robbies Edgier Looking Harley Quinn

"I know it's jarring to a lot of the people who love the classic Bruce Timm suit - I love it myself."

Paul Dini, who co-created Harley Quinn with Bruce Timm for ‘Batman: The Animated Series’ has revealed that he has no problems with the edgier version that fans will see Margot Robbie play in next years ‘Suicide Squad’ movie.

Speaking during on the Shanlian On Batman podcast, Dini said of the character’s new look: “I know it’s jarring to a lot of the people who love the classic Bruce Timm suit – I love it myself.

“But in [the Suicide Squad film], I just don’t see it happening. It’s a rougher, more street look. I think it works fine.”

Dini went on to say: “I think Margot is very nice – she’s a very wonderful actress, certainly very attractive and very talented.

The animator also said he was looking forward to Harley’s ‘Sid Vicious and Nancy Spungen’-esque relationship with Jared Leto’s Joker.

“There’s a little bit of Sid and Nancy to the Joker and Harley look, which I always felt would not be a bad look if they were in a live-action movie,” he explained.

“If you put them in that realistic world I feel they would look like down-and-out rockers. They would look dangerous.”

“I’m very excited to see that interpretation of Harley.”

‘Suicide Squad’ will come crashing into Cinema’s in the UK in August of 2015.
