New Suicide Squad set photos has leaked online, and it shows that the toxic Harley Quinn (Margot Robbie) / Joker (Jared Leto) relationship is intact. The darkly comic characters (the measure of darkness and comedy varies by writer) have a unique dynamic in DC Comics, and the challenge for any writer is to make them compelling and powerful while not using real domestic abuse for entertainment value. We have to find both characters engaging even though they can both be repugnant.

This photos gives us a brief sense of how director David Ayer plans to pull that off. In the scene, Harley pulls a gun on Joker, and then he takes it away before backhanding her.  There was some video from the set earlier where you couldn’t hear any of the dialogue beyond Harley shouting, “Get out of the car!” but one thing is for certain: Leto’s performance involves a lot of hip waving.  Warner Bros. had the video taken down, but at least we have some Instagram and Twitter photos.

Check out the Suicide Squad set photos below and click over to Latino Review for some close-up images of The Joker where you can see his tattoos. The film opens August 5, 2016 and also stars Will Smith (Deadshot), Jai Courtney (Captain Boomerang), Cara Delevingne (Enchantress), Joel Kinnaman (Rick Flag), Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje (Killer Croc), Jay Hernandez (El Diablo), Karen Fukuhara (Katana), Adam Beach (Slipknot), Viola Davis (Amanda Walker), Ike Barinholtz, Scott Eastwood, Raymond Olubowale, Alex Meraz, Jim Parrack, and Common.
