Harley Quinn as played by Margot Robbie might be the most-anticipated comic book movie performance of the year. With her winks, smiles, and crazy dialogue that we've already seen in Suicide Squad trailers, fans are anxious to see more of the character.

She's also "one of the more unpredictable members of the squad," Robbie said of her character in a CinemaCon interview with LATimes, who uses her "extensive knowledge of mental illnesses and how to manipulate people, pick their triggers."

But what about The Joker (Jared Leto)? He's virtually impossible to manipulate, by nature of always being a little be further on the side of crazy than anyone else in the room.

"It's an incredibly dysfunctional relationship. She's mad about him... like, literally mad. She's crazy. But she loves him, and it's a really unhealthy, dysfunctional relationship, but an addictive one," Robbie said. Points to the actress for using "mad" in her description, as the story "Mad Love" that first dove into their relationship on Batman: The Animated Series and was later adapted as a comicbook at DC Comics is considered the first seminal Harley Quinn story.
