Whereas Suicide Squad wasn’t the vital darling that DC and Warner Bros hoped kind it was a powerhouse on the summer season 2016 field workplace, and it additionally considerably increase the profile of Margot Robbie, who earlier than then was arguably greatest recognized for her position in The Wolf of Wall Avenue earlier than taking part in Harley Quinn. Robbie has constructed a strong profession because of different motion pictures like The Legend of Tarzan, Whiskey Tango Foxtrot and I, Tonya, however she’s nonetheless holding Harley near her coronary heart. Plenty of DC motion pictures involving Harley have been in growth for some time, and now apparently that choice has been narrowed down to 3 choices: Suicide Squad 2, Birds of Prey and a Joker/Harley film.
Harley Quinn has been a fan favourite ever since she was launched in Batman: The Animated Collection in 1992, showing in quite a few different TV reveals and video video games, in addition to being an essential character within the DC Comics universe. Suicide Squad marked her stay motion theatrical debut, and positive sufficient, Robbie’s portrayal of Harley was one of many film’s extra nicely obtained components. Now The Wrap reviews that Suicide Squad 2, Birds of Prey and the Joker/Harley film are the three finalists for the place Harley may pop up subsequent within the DCEU. The notable emissions right here embrace a standalone Harley Quinn movie, which Robbie talked about late final yr, and Gotham City Sirens, which Suicide Squad director David Ayer has been engaged on since December 2016 and, just like the comedian e book collection of the identical identify, would see Harley teaming up with Poison Ivy and Catwoman.
Of those three motion pictures, the one Margot Robbie is virtually a shoe-in for is Suicide Squad 2, which is gearing manufacturing in direction of the tip of the yr. Since Harley Quinn was one in every of Suicide Squad‘s hottest characters, Warner Bros could be silly to not deliver her again for the sequel. And with Jared Leto anticipated to reprise The Joker as nicely, that signifies that not solely would Robbie’s Harley be again serving in Activity Drive X, she’s additionally get extra high quality time together with her Mistah J. Whereas no official Suicide Squad 2 story particulars have been revealed but, it is rumored that the film will see the staff touring to Kahndaq monitor down a weapon of mass destruction, which is none aside from Black Adam.
Seeking to Birds of Prey, it was introduced again in November 2016 and is deliver written by Bumblebee’s Christina Hodson. This film would function a number of feminine superheroes and presumably villains, so like Suicide Squad, Harley could be simply one of many many gamers. This may be one other good automobile to showcase Harley, and if Gotham Metropolis Sirens is now not on the desk, then maybe components of its plot could possibly be integrated into Birds of Prey. As for the Joker/Harley movie, it has Loopy Silly Love writers John Requa and Glenn Ficara connected as writers/administrators/producers, and it’s described as a “legal love story.” I think that is the least likeliest film to really occur, particularly if Suicide Squad 2 and/or Birds of Prey can dedicate an honest period of time to the Joker and Harley relationship, however we’ll see what occurs.
