While Suicide Squad may focus on a motley crew of twisted super villains, that doesn’t mean there won’t be romance between the characters.

According to reports, Will Smith’s Deadshot, Jared Leto’s Joker and Margot Robbie’s Harley Quinn will be tangled in a “ragged love triangle”.

Speaking to Empire magazine, Smith admitted: "Harley is the biggest troublemaker, but Deadshot's actually eyeballing her a little bit. There’s a pretty ragged romantic triangle there."

"As the movie opens, [Deadshot] has a really big career score. He's looking to turn over a new leaf with his daughter after the hit, but it goes wrong. It goes terribly, terribly wrong. And it lands him in [prison] Belle Reve for life.”

In the same article director David Ayer gave more details about Quinn’s story, saying: “[Her story] is about her breaking free of The Joker and becoming this fully actualised, independent person. That really is a metaphor for everyone's journey here."

Jared Leto’s Joker was featured on the front cover of the magazine, giving us our first full-length shot of the Batman villain. He said that playing the character was like “giving birth out of my prick hole’”.
