More “Suicide Squad” Joker and Harley Designs Revealed

Whether you loved or hated the designs for The Joker and Harley Quinn in 2016’s Suicide Squad, YouTube reveals they were not the only conceptions.

The recently released documentary entitled Man Behind The Sweater focuses on the film’s “key costumer” Philip Maldonaldo, whose resume also includes Freddy Krueger’s design for A Nightmare on Elm Street. When you cue the video to 45:19, you can view the section on Suicide Squad which reveals different costume ideas – deleted scenes or movie tests? – for both The Clown Prince of Crime and The Queen of Gotham, played by Jared Leto and Margot Robbie respectively.
