Margot Robbie Is Returning As Harley Quinn In An EPIC Way

Margot Robbie Is Returning As Harley Quinn In An EPIC Way

Though the Academy Award-winning Suicide Squad hit theaters in 2016, its standout star Margot Robbie has had Harley Quinn on the mind for two years now. It was detailed that a film starring "several" of Dc's female heroes and villains was in the works, but it appears as though we might be getting an entirely separate Harley Quinn film as well. It's why, since then, we've heard the character will not only be in Suicide Squad 2, but possibly a Gotham City Sirens movie as well as a Harley and Joker movie.

In an interview to MTV, Margot said, "I've been working on a separate spin-off for Harley for a while now".

The success of Patty Jenkins directorial Wonder Woman proved that audiences love well-made female centric superhero movies, and although Harley Quinn can not be called a superhero by any stretch of imagination, she is a strong female comic-book badass and with the praise Robbie got, it makes commercial sense to cash in on the success.

Indeed, it was Robbie's gleeful performance that resonated with fans - more so than any other member of Task Force X - so it's small wonder why Warner Bros. has made a decision to double down on her Harley Quinn for the foreseeable future.

When Horowitz asked whether she meant Gotham City Sirens or the Harley and Joker spin-off, she coyly replied, "It's a totally separate one". Perhaps more surprising is the fact that it's just one of a number of Harley-centric movies in development, and this latest one she's speaking of doesn't seem to have been reported on before. Yeah, there's alot going on right now. Robbie has done a great job at portraying Quinn, so anything she's in should make for a fun film.

"She needs other girls around her because she loves that, you see it in the comics: she loves meeting people - any people - but she needs a little girl gang".

On the learning curve for developing these films: "I think when it comes to something that has such a huge fan base already, you obviously want to do the fans justice". But you also can't be kind of paralyzed by the idea of 'How do we please everyone?' because it's just not going to happen. Which project are you the most excited about?
