"The beach uniform was inspired by her outfit in the Injustice 2 video game", Gunn wrote, to which the game's creative director and team lead Ed Boon replied, "Thanks for the shout out."

After debuting in Batman: The Animated Series in 1992, Harley Quinn made the jump to comics and subsequently videogames and movies, becoming more independent of her origin as the Joker's perky minion/girlfriend and losing her harlequin costume in favor of multiple outfits of varying ridiculousness. The alternate DC universe of the Injustice games cast Quinn as a member of the Insurgency, fighting a regime led by an evil version of Superman, and gave her a red-and-black uniform like the one she wears, albeit briefly, in The Suicide Squad.

The GeForce Now database leak included a listing for Injustice 3: Gods Will Fall, and though Nvidia declared it was a list of purely "speculative" games, rumours of a third Injustice have nevertheless been doing the rounds. One includes a list of characters, including John Constantine, Metallo, Red Tornado, and Nekron alongside returning characters like Harley Quinn, with He-Man as DLC. The leak claims it will be announced at The Game Awards, with a May 2022 release date.
