That’s right, we’re talking about his daughter, Harley Quinn Smith. Kevin has been into the Batman franchise for as long as we can all remember, so it’s no wonder that he would put that much thought into things. When his daughter was born, he and his wife decided that Harley Quinn would be her name and she has fully embraced her namesake. (more…)

Now, Warner Brothers has released behind-the-scenes footage that is over 9-minutes long and it reveals the classic jester costume! Costume designer, Kate Hawley had her own input for fans. (more…)

They will continue to move forward as if Suicide Squad and subsequent releases are hits at the theaters. With that being said it should come as no surprise that rumors are circulating that they intend on creating more solo spinoffs out of this cadre of criminals.
