Margot Robbie who played Harley Quinn in Suicide Squad, in a recent interview with The Hollywood Reporter, while promoting her critically acclaimed movie I, Tonya, went on to talk on the aftermath of joining Suicide Squad, when it came to her celebrity status changing.
Robbie goes on to talk on how the worst-case scenario of being in a comic book film is how big and scary it can get. She goes on to talk on how she received death threats because of it.
“You’re about to be in a comic book film; now here’s the worst-case scenario of how big and scary it can get. There’s just all this stuff you learn along the way, like, when you get those death threats, it’s [smart] to have a security team do a background check on whoever sent them to see if there is any past history of violence because you’ll need to know whether you need security to go to certain events.”
Though whatever those threats were, they weren’t enough to stop Robbie for wanting to continue to make comic book films, as she’s still on-board to return as Harley Quinn for Suicide Squad 2 and Gotham City Sirens.
