James Gunn, director of The Suicide Squad (as well as the Guardians of the Galaxy, Super and Slither films), recently shared some Concept art for Harley Quinn’s clothes in the movie. In addition to two versions of her pageant dress, there is an early concept of the red and black outfit worn by Margot Robbie as Quinn during the opening of Corto Maltese’s The Beach Sequence (and in most of the film’s marketing).
“The beach outfit was inspired by her outfit in the video game Injustice 2,” Gunn wrote, which is led by the game’s creative director and her team. Ed Boon replied, “Thanks for shouting.”
After debuting in Batman: The Animated Series in 1992, Harley Quinn made the leap into comics, video games, and later films, becoming more independent of her origin as the Joker’s hilarious agent/girlfriend and losing her clown costume in favor of multiple ridiculously varying outfits. DC’s alternate universe of Injustice Games cast Quinn as a member of the Rebellion, battling a regime led by an evil version of Superman, and giving her a red-and-black outfit like the one she’s wearing, albeit briefly, on The Suicide team.
