Comic book fans are always comparing between Marvel and DC characters, so why don’t get the actors to do it for a change. And who better than Margot Robbie and Michael B. Jordan?
Robbie, who played Harley Quinn in DC’s “Suicide Squad”, and Jordan, who played Kilmonger in Marvel’s “Black Panther”, recently sat down for a joint interview for W magazine.
During their session, both A-listers were asked on how they turned morally questionable villains into magnetic antiheroes. “I like that. I mean, those are the most interesting characters to me sometimes, like when I’m watching films that, on screen, are the ones that you can empathise with. Like, they want you to root against ’em. They want you to not like them. But somehow you can still understand where they’re coming from and that’s important,” the 32-year-old actor shared.
The Aussie beauty, who is gearing up to reprise her DC character for the “Birds of Prey” movie, talked about the process of getting dolled up. “Honestly, for me, as Harley at least, the more skin showing the longer it takes in hair and makeup ’cause she’s got, you know, white skin and a million tattoos. So if anything outside, god, the scenes where I don’t even have the jacket on, that’s an extra 20 minutes in the makeup trailer,” Robbie said.
The “Black Panther” star could also relate to Robbie’s situation since Kilmonger would also often appear shirtless and there were tons of scars and makeup that was involved.
In a previous interview, Robbie revealed that the challenge that came with playing Harley Quinn was the wig and having to do her fight scenes in her skimpy outfits. However, she shared, “the worst thing were the gold bangles. They had spikes on them, and I’d always stab myself. I hated them.”
In survey poll conducted by Comic Vine, fans were asked if Eric Killmonger and Harley Quinn would make a good couple. 50% said no, while 48% concur by voting that the 2 antiheroes would just end up trying to kill each other.
