David Ayer’s Suicide Squad might not have found critical success, but fans were pleased enough with the characters to warrant a sequel and multiple spin-offs. Possibly the most exciting and successful aspect of Suicide Squad was the introduction of Margot Robbie as Harley Quinn, and the actor recently revealed that she’s working on a new spin-off film for the character.
In a recent interview with MTV, Robbie revealed that she is currently developing a movie for Harley Quinn, which isn’t the already announced Gotham City Sirens or Joker/Harley movie.
See what Robbie said below:
“I’ve been working on a separate spin-off Harley thing for a while.”
Asked whether this is the same project as Gotham City Sirens or the Harley/Joker movie, she clarified:
“No. It’s a totally separate one.”
Robbie then went on to further explain her role as Halrey Quinn in the DC Extended Universe, revealing that even she doesn’t know which project Harley will appear in next:
“There’s a lot going on right now and I’m not sure. I, honestly, I don’t think anyone knows what’s going to be the next thing to happen. But I think everyone’s keen to get Harley back on screen, so everyone is working on lots of different versions of what that could be.”
Finally, Robbie goes on to explain what she wants to explore with the Harley Quinn character, stating that she hopes to see Harley surrounded with her female gang of misfits:
“I wanna see her with other women. I was like, I kept saying it we were shooting Suicide Squad. I was like, ‘she needs her girlfriends. She needs other girls around her because she loves that.’ You’ve seen it in the comics. You’ve seen that she loves meeting people, any people, but she needs a little girl gang.”
At this moment of time it’s not 100% clear when we’ll next see Robbie as Harley Quinn, but it’s exciting to hear the the actor is working on different projects, and planning a future as Harley Quinn in the DC Extended Universe/
