A lot of people are extremely excitement for the upcoming DC film Suicide Squad, almost more so than they are towards Batman v Superman

It’s no surprise really: along with mixing up the superhero formula by focussing on the villains, there is an all-star cast including Will Smith, Jared Leto and Margot Robbie, the latter of which has recently spoken about her role as Harley Quinn.

"Harley is creepy, violent, crazy - all of the things that I aspire to be,” the 25-year-old actress joked with Cineplex. “No. It’s the fun of living vicariously through someone who is doing things that I would never do in real life.”

Robbie also spoke about her favourite actor to work with and, not surprisingly, it wasn’t Leto, who apparently isolated himself from the rest of the cast while filming. 

Instead, it was Focus co-star Will Smith: “I enjoyed working with Will so, so much that I was overjoyed when I heard that we would be working together again.

“I actually texted him when I heard he was in negotiations to be in Suicide Squad and kept peer-pressuring him, ‘You’d better be taking this movie!’ He obviously signed on for his own reasons, but I was so incredibly happy that we got to do Round Two. He’s awesome on set and awesome off set. He’s just a really, really good person.”

Previously, Smith detailed how his character Deadshot, was engaged in a “ragged love triangle” with both Robbie’s Quinn and Leto’s Joker.
