Margot Robbie and Rob Gronkowski Star in a Promotional Sketch For Suicide Squad
In a play on the origins of one of the most popular comic book villains/heroes/anti-heroes of the early 21st century, Margot Robbie attended a psychological therapy session in the form of a promotional sketch for the highly anticipated upcoming comic book film, Suicide Squad. Hosting the session was none other than Rob Gronkowski, which American football fans know to be the famous tight end of the New England Patriots. The promotion aired last night during ESPN's 2016 ESPY awards. 



Of course, Harley Quinn was first Harleen Quinzell, one of the in-house psychiatrists at Arkham Asylum. After meeting the Joker, she fell for the lies he told her in their sessions together. One day, she helped him escape, becoming Harley Quinn in the process. The New 52 origins then add in a bit about how the Joker then took her to Ace Chemicals and threw her in the same vat of acid that he took his dive in, and as the trailers have shown, this addition to her origins will be kept for the live action iteration of the character.

In the video, Robbie talks about the stress of the upcoming movie and indirectly mentions a few of her fellow squad members. After she's done letting it all out, "Dr. Gronkowski" tells her that he knows how she feels, that he has a crazy squad of his own (this actually feels somewhat appropriate given all of the accusations that have been thrown at the Patriots in the past year - many people have come to see them as "the bad guys" of the NFL). He also said he wanted his squad and Margot's to party, which is something I'm sure Ben Affleck would be totally down for judging by that rant that went viral a few weeks ago (though of course Affleck's not on the Squad, he's Batman). 

The final trailer for Suicide Squad will likely be shown in Hall H at SDCC next weekend. The movie itself premieres August 5th, a little over two weeks away.
