Suicide Squad director David Ayer complained that he was not allowed to create the Harley Quinn image he hoped for, and instead had to present the audience with a "sexualized version." He spoke about this in response to fans' questions on Twitter.
"Unfortunately, her story was literally gutted. It was her movie in many ways. Look, I tried. I tried to make her exactly like she is depicted in comics. But now everything has become very politicized. Everything. Therefore, I just want to entertain, "he said.
Recall that the movie" Suicide Squad ", released in 2016, earned mostly negative reviews of Western movie critics, but proved to be very successful in the world box office. Its worldwide box office grossed $ 740 million. The main role was played by Margot Robbie.
The actress returned to this role in the movie "Birds of Prey: The Fabulous Story of Harley Quinn". Unlike Suicide Squad, this adaptation of DC comics received positive reviews, but barely paid off at the box office. The release of the second "Suicide Squad" is scheduled for August 2021.
