'Suicide Squad' to Feature... A Love Triangle?
We're expecting a lot from Suicide Squad next year. A ton of violence, a dark sense of humor, and plenty of disturbing insanity from Jared Leto's Joker. We have to admit, however, that romantic storylines weren't really something we were anticipating. So it comes as a shock for us to learn that not only will the movie feature some romance, but that it's going to have a full blown love triangle!

According to comments from Will Smith, who plays Deadshot, his character becomes involved with Margot Robbie's Harley Quinn - in spite of the fact that everyone knows she's the Joker's girl. Here's what Smith had to say:

Opening quote
"Harley is the biggest troublemaker, but Deadshot's actually eyeballing her a little bit. There's a pretty ragged romantic triangle there."
Closing quote


Rumors of feelings between the two characters really began back in May, when leaked set photos showed Deadshot tenderly carrying Harley in the rain during a scene. Now adding to the speculation in addition to what Smith said are comments made about Harley's representation in the film by director David Ayer, who said: 

Opening quote
"It's about [Harley] breaking free of The Joker and becoming this fully actualized, independent person. That really is a metaphor for everyone's journey here."

So reading between the lines here, it sure looks like there's going to be some romantic tension between Deadshot, Harley, and the Joker. Remember how we said we were expecting lots of violence in this movie? I think we just upped our expectations.
