Thanks to some on-set pics, we've gotten our first glimpse at what Robbie (best known for her roles in "The Wolf of Wall Street" and "Focus") looks like as The Joker's girlfriend.
Shortly after those shots made their way onto the Internet, Ayer revealed the first official photo of the "Suicide Squad" cast in their costumes and Will Smith as Deadshot via his Twitter account. (See below for both those photos.)
This flurry of photos comes about a week after the world got its first look at Jared Leto as Harley's "puddin'," The Joker.

Thanks to the DC Movies! Facebook, now you do.
As I expected, Harley is based on DC Comics' New 52 incarnation, especially from the "bombshell" version seen on the "bombshell" variant covers of DC's female characters, including Harley, Batgirl, Batwoman, Catwoman, Supergirl, Hawkgirl … you get the idea.
The live-action Harley bombshell look is especially obvious in the short-shorts and baseball jacket Robbie is wearing. She's also wearing a "choker," as Harley does on the variant cover of HARLEY QUINN No. 7 — although the movie version has more bling.

Robbie's version isn't armed with the oversized hammer as Harley did in the ever-classic "Batman: The Animated Series."

clearly inspired the movie version (right).
Lastly, check out the T-shirt Robbie is wearing — "Daddy's Lil Monster" and the high-heeled tennis shoes. Those must be a bear to walk in! I can't begin to imagine how sore Robbie's feet must be after a long day on the set. Yeeek! (On the other hand, wearing those bad boys does nothing but show off the actress' shapely legs. … Hey, I'm an ass-and-legs man; what can I say?)

Overall I'll give this first look at Harley Quinn a solid B to B+, but as the character herself might say, the proof of just how good the onscreen interpretation will be in the "puddin'" of Robbie's performance and Ayer's screenplay.
And oh yeah, what about Smith as Deadshot?
Deadshot looks like the meancing badass assassin he is. It's refreshing to see the red and black color scheme being carried over from the comics. But I gotta say the mask — while close to the comics — closely resembles Casey Jones, from TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES. Grade: B+
