This was the year of the superhero movie with “Wonder Woman,” and the supervillain movie “Suicide Squad” boasted big returns, too, in 2016. Margot Robbie’s performance as Harley Quinn in the latter definitely resonated with viewers -- enough to make her colorful costume among 2017’s top choices.

3. Clown
