Ever since I saw the episode “Harley and Ivy” from Batman: The Animated Series, those two became one of my favorite couples.
I love them because it’s rare to see women take over a show that had the spotlight mostly centered around men, and they are proof that ladies don’t need help from men. Plus, they know how to pull-of a G.N.O. – enjoy the freedom, the rush, and the thrill of unplanned heists.
In Suicide Squad, there’s no special connection between Katana and Harley Quinn. I was hoping for another female-female relationship in the film since the squad mostly consisted of guys. Not only was I disappointed by not seeing that relationship happen, but also by the fact that I didn’t feel any special connection between any of the characters.
Since the squad was quickly formed and the villains had little interaction between each other, I didn’t find them as attractive as the Justice League and the Teen Titans – a team of friends who have bonds as strong as those of a family.
It would be a dream come true to see Poison Ivy and Harley Quinn “Suicide Squad 2”.
If that relationship can’t happen in the sequel, it would be even better if David Ayer strengthen the relationship between the characters more.
It doesn’t take a whole lot of time to develop relationships in stories; like the “Harley and Ivy” episode, a special connection between characters can be formed pretty quickly.
