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. In a recent interview with MTV, Robbie-who showed she was much, much more than a pretty face in I, Tonya-revealed that she's hard at work on yet another Harley Quinn project unrelated to the previously announced ones.
"I wanna see her with other women", she said.
The actress went on to say that she hopes to begin filming her next Quinn appearance as early as next year, though she did not specify which project that would come in.
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". "There's a lot going on right now", she joked. I kept saying it when we were shooting Suicide Squad - she needs her girlfriends. The unhinged troublemaker made her big-screen debut in David Ayer's heavily maligned Suicide Squad, and while the film itself failed to impress critics, Robbie's electric performance was a rousing success.
No other details were disclosed at press time - it is under lock and key, after all - but this certainly cements Harley Quinn's future (and Margot Robbie's) in the DC Extended Universe. There are four Harley Quinn movies on the schedule and at least two more Wonder Woman films.
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".
"It's so weird when people want to know about you because you're like, wait, my whole job is not being me. Me?" It seems like it's best for Warner Bros.to ideal their craft instead of tacking on even more projects on their already-hefty plate.
