    #BatmanDay: The strange but true history of Harley Quinn revealed!

    Editor’s note: The original version of this story ran in July 2016, as Harley Quinn was about to make her big-screen debut in Suicide Squad. With Saturday designated as the annual Batman Day, and DC celebrating by giving Harley a co-starring role coinciding with her 25th anniversary, we thought it was the perfect time to revisit our first-hand account of the strange origin of one of DC’s strangest characters from the man who dreamed her up. In the early 1990s, Paul Dini was a writer for hire, cranking out scripts for the ground-breaking, noirish Batman: The Animated Series, when inspiration struck.

    Margot Robbie slapped Leonardo DiCaprio at the 'The Wolf of Wall Street' audition

    Trying to forge a career in Hollywood? Maybe try slapping your way to the top. Time's The Most Influential 100 People has been released, a regular feature in which profiles of the honorees are written by other famous people. SEE ALSO: This '13 Reasons Why' star could be the Asian leading man Hollywood needs In the case of Australian Margot Robbie, the actress was praised by director Martin Scorsese, the director of The Wolf of Wall Street — the film in which Robbie made her Hollywood breakthrough. Scorsese tried to answer the question on what Robbie is like by waxing lyrical about her "comedic genius" and "all-bets-off feistiness," reminiscent of classic Hollywood actresses. But what really convinced Scorsese that Robbie was right for her part in The Wolf of Wall Street was her "unique audacity" — which, well, basically means her giving Leonardo DiCaprio one across the face. "She clinched her part in The Wolf of Wall Street during our first meeting — by hauling off and giving Leonardo DiCaprio a thunderclap of a slap on the face, an improvisation that stunned us all," he wrote. Robbie recounted the moment in an interview with Harper's Bazaar back in 2015, where she barely got a word in during an improvised scene between herself and a "phenomenal" DiCaprio.  She had to make her mark in the next scene, an argument between the couple: "In my head I was like, 'You have literally 30 seconds left in this room and if you don't do something impressive nothing will ever come of it. It's a once-in-a-lifetime chance, just take it," Robbie said. So when she was told to come over and kiss DiCaprio, in character as the unstable Jordan Belfort, Robbie did the opposite. "Another part of my brain clicks and I just go, Whack! I hit him in the face. And then I scream, 'Fuck you!' And that's not in the script at all. The room just went dead silent and I froze," she said.  "And then all of a sudden Marty and Leo just burst out laughing. Marty says, 'That was great!' Leo's like, 'Hit me again!'" Robbie added. It was a slap that forged a career.  Scorsese finished his attempt to explain what Robbie is like with one last quip: "This is not a complete answer to the perennial question, but it's a start. Margot is stunning in all she is and all she does, and she will astonish us forever." WATCH: There's now a Roomba for your lawn, but it'll cost ya

    Margot Robbie to star as Maid Marian in Robin Hood spin-off

    Robin Hood is back… sort of. At least, Maid Marian will be, in a new Robin-Hood-inspired tale called ‘Marian’ that’s just been green lit with ‘Suicide Squad’ star Margot Robbie in the title role. Margot Robbie is perhaps best known these days as Harley Quinn in the recent ‘Suicide Squad’ movie… but like her comic book counterpart, she’s not just a pretty face.

    New Photos of Margot Robbie as Figure Skater Tonya Harding and Sebastian Stan as Harding’s Ex-Husband

    In the late 1980s and early 1990s, Tonya Harding was one of American figure skating’s brightest lights. That is, she was until she was implicated in a 1994 plot by her ex-husband, Jeff Gillooly, and bodyguard, Shawn Eckhardt, who pleaded guilty to hiring someone to club Harding’s main rival, Nancy Kerrigan, on the leg in the run-up to the Winter Olympics. The shocking incident — which led to a plea deal and probation for Harding — rocked the sports world and will no doubt be one of the focal points of the upcoming Harding biopic I, Tonya, starring Margot Robbie of Suicide Squad as the skater. ...

    David Ayer: I should have made Joker the main villain in Suicide Squad

    Hindsight is a wonderful thing, especially if you’re film director David Ayer. The director surprisingly issued a fan with a detailed response over on Twitter, as the helmer openly discussed ‘Suicide Squad’ and cleared up his feelings on making it. While he thanked fans and insisted he tried his best to make something different, the interesting part is when he says what he perhaps should have done with Jared Leto’s The Joker.

    Women spoke just 27 percent of the dialogue in 2016's top movies

    Following last week’s news of a drop in the number of female directors working in Hollywood, it’s emerged that actresses seem to getting a seriously raw deal when it comes to dialogue. Despite high-profile leading roles for the likes of Margot Robbie in ‘Suicide Squad’, Ellen DeGeneres in ‘Finding Dory’ and Felicity Jones in ‘Rogue One’, the trend is still very much in favour of men getting the lion’s share of the lines. Data scientist Amber Thomas has published her findings on Medium.com’s FreeCodeCamp site, and they’re pretty damning.
