Suicide Squad writer and director David Ayer reacted to Harley Quinn’s new Birds of Prey look.
David Ayer’s Suicide Squad was the first film to bring Batman rogue Harley Quinn to live-action. The character became a fan favorite since her Batman: The Animated Series debut. With Suicide Squad, Margot Robbie’s Harley Quinn reached a wider audience as the film earned $746 million worldwide. Harley Quinn is now a staple for Warner Bros. and set to return in Cathy Yan’s Birds of Prey. Filming for the Suicide Squad spin-off is now underway and Harley Quinn’s new look was revealed earlier this week. A fan reached out to David Ayer, asking for his thoughts on Harley Quinn’s new look:

Here’s What We Learned On The Set Of DC’s ‘Shazam!’ Movie
Shazam! I’m writing that because I’ve had to use all the powers of an ancient Egyptian wizard to contain my excitement and prevent me from telling you the things I’m about to tell you at this moment. Back in April, I got the invitation of a lifetime. Warner Brothers, New Line and DC began sending out invitations to the set of the Shazam! movie.
I was lucky enough to be one of the few journalists invited to the set of Shazam! and I have to say I saw some pretty fantastical things. This was Heroic Hollywood’s second set visit and my first time ever visiting a movie set, so as a movie fan, I was excited, and as a DC Comics fan, I was screaming internally.
This was my first time visiting Toronto and it came with such a cool stipulation. The other journalists and I arrived in Toronto on Wednesday, April 17, 2018. We got to enjoy the beautiful city on our first night there and then on Thursday morning, we were up bright and early to visit the set of the film.
It was cold day in Toronto and me and a bunch of other journalists made our way to Pinewood Studios to visit the set of the Shazam! movie. We were directed into this office where they showed us this terrific sizzle reel and told us almost everything about the movie. Now that the embargo has officially lifted, I can finally tell you almost everything we learned on set of Shazam.
There’s a bunch of cool things about Shazam! that you guys have yet to discover and I’m excited to dissect it for you in the following slideshow. Hit next as I reveal almost everything about my Heroic mission to the Shazam! set.
