Margot Robbie’s Harley Quinn Is Getting a Film Featuring Women From DC Comics

HarleyQuinnRobbie

Suicide Squad won’t debut until August but Warner Bros. is ready to put money behind some DC Comics women, hero and villain alike, with Harley Quinn leading the pack.

The Hollywood Reporter says:

Margot Robbie, who stars as the villainess in Suicide Squad, is attached to reprise the character and would also produce the untitled spin-off, The Hollywood Reporter has learned.

But in an interesting twist, the project is not a Quinn solo movie. Rather, it would focus on several of DC’s female heroes and villains.

Details are being closely guarded but names such as Batgirl and Birds of Prey have surfaced, although in what capacity, it’s not clear. Warner Bros. isn’t commenting.

Excuse me for a moment.

THR says Robbie, who’s been very vocal about Harley, will also produce the film. Excelllllllent. They write, “There is also a scribe penning the script but those details, too, are being kept secret, although it is known that the writer is female.”

Sources say that Robbie was the impetus for the project, adding that when she got the part for the movie, she dove deep into the comics to learn as much as possible on the character. In the process, she fell for DC’s female characters. She brought on the writer to help develop the project and brought it Warners, which snapped it up.

Is it Christmas? This is a lovely surprise. While we wait for more details on this one, I choose to be extremely excited. Who would you like to see join Harley? Ivy is the first obvious choice.

    So, Margot Robbie is now a comic book nerd? And she’s officially irresistible.

  • Steve Robert

    I am very excited to watch Harley Quinn. The movie is accepted to be in theaters this Christmas. http://www.angeljackets.com

    This is going to be awesome. ^^

  • The character has strayed so far thanks to the awful portrayal in the Arkham games, the costume changes that were only changed for a very obvious reason, and I’m not entirely convinced this will be good. Maybe Suicide Squad will change my mind, because this movie on paper is something I have dreamed of and would love, but I don’t trust Warner Bros. yet.

  • bohicamonster

    Gotham City Sirens, perhaps?

  • wondercube

    Gotham City Sirens vs Birds of Prey plz

  • PLEASE can she be in the classic costume for at least a scene? One wittle scene?

  • Most of this sounds great, but there’s one little niggle here, but this “Batgirl and the Birds of Prey”? Let’s not do that. Not unless Batgirl is Cassandra Cain, Stephanie Brown, or both. If we’re talking BoP in live action finally, I want Barbara as Oracle or nothing.

  • Anna

    It makes me happy that Margot Robbie has actual passion for the characters and the universe. I hope it’s a team-up with the Poison Ivy, and maybe the Birds of Prey too. This seems like a really fun movie idea!
    It seems like Zack Snyder is the problem with these DC movies. Take him out of the equation, and I still have hope for this movie universe.

  • bandit_queen

    What we’ve seen of this Harley so far (quirky/sexy/”crazy”) kinda makes me cringe, but with a good writer who cares about the substance of the character? This would be fantastic.

  • SaoirseRonanTheAccuser

    The thing that gets me interested here, beyond representation, is that Robbie is actually pushing hard for it. Doesn’t mean it’ll work, but I love seeing that kind of passion. The fact that the movie is coming from genuine interest rather than whatever insane bull Kevin Tsujihara is greenlighting things based on definitely has me interested.

  • I feel really sorry for people excited for this. I know how hard it is to avoid hype culture but like nothing about this version of Wonder Woman or Harley exit me. Give me Harley dating Ivy in a funny movie and I’m down. I would love this team up if it wasn’t you know this DC universe or like most of DC’s universes.

    • SaoirseRonanTheAccuser

      So… you feel sorry for people who are excited by this because you are not excited by it?

      • I feel sorry because your set up to be let down. I mean I see a lot of the same people who hated Man of Steel and BVS like OMG yay. It’s just not very likely to be very different. Companies are good at manipulating hype, making people excited. In fact if they do their job right the people who are hyped will refuse to admit things are bad, our brain will grab any good detail and refuse any other detail.

    • Anna

      I think the problem with the DC movie universe is mostly Zack Snyder tbh.

      • I mean it’s easy to say that but he has already left his stamp and is still a part of it. That won’t change any time soon. I mean let’s hope the reshoots for suicide squad stop it from being the morbid sad fest they weren’t marketing it as but it totally was.

        • Anna

          Yeah, but they do seem to be phasing him out slowly. I want to believe that the movies can recover, it’s not like BvS couldn’t have been a good movie. The elements of a good movie were there, the execution was just ridiculously horrible. I’m inclined to think that that’s more Snyder’s fault than anyone else.
          But you’re right, the damage to Batman and Superman has already been done. That doesn’t mean that everything out of the DCU will be horrible though- the Wonder Woman movie seems pretty promising.

          • I’ve seen and heard zero good things about the wonder woman movie. From putting a woman in a fat suit to play Eda candy, to the very white, cis, het, amazons, to Gal Gadot saying the movie is dark.

          • Anna

            1) I agree on the fatsuit thing.
            2) To be fair, Gal Gadot is Israeli. Only, like, 3 amazons have been revealed yet, so I think it’s a little early to say that they’ll all be white. But I’m curious about how you can tell that they’re all hetero? That seems like an odd jump of logic, since we only have a few photos from this film, only one of the other amazons.
            Anyways, it’s ridiculous to expect the DCU to go all-out with LGBT amazons. I would love if that happened, but it’s just not going to. DC is still trying to sell this movie to a general audience, and a lot of the general audience will be uncomfortable with queer amazons. Again, I wish that it could happen, but DC’s just not going to endanger their box office to support us LGBT folks.
            3) I’m fine with the world being dark as long as Wonder Woman isn’t.

          • I assume it is because let’s just be real here, if they were going to do something they most likely would announce it in advance to throw off criticism when it comes closer. They would get all the anger out in advance and then sales would stay pretty normal.

            Yah Gal is Israeli but legally in the US that is considered white if we want to get technical here. I mean she is there to play a white standard of beauty for people.

            I hate the armor design as well I just looked at the cast and am remembering how much I hated their outfits.

            Then it’s cool your good with a dark movie, I am not and I think a dark movie mean a dark Wonder Woman. Were going to get, “I kill people, murder is cool” Wonder woman.

  • Produced by Robbie and written by a female screenwriter? Both of those things make me highly optimistic about this! I hope the director is a lady, too.

  • doc

    Birds of Prey v. Harley and Ivy.

    This is the “versus” movie we should have gotten from WB/DC.

  • the silver ravens

    do it! add poison ivy and let them have a romance and not just jokes or teasing full on romance. i want suicide squad’s ending to be down to just harley and joker and it looks like she is about to let him escape but instead she is like “No!” knocks him out with her bat and instead she escapes and that leads into her movie
