Suicide Squad is months away from release, but already there are reports of a spin-off film for Margot Robbie’s Harley Quinn. However, this isn’t the typical story of a spin-off film.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Warner Bros. is working on developing a movie centered around the colorful Gotham citizen at the behest of star Margot Robbie.
When she got the role and began to do her research, she fell in love, or so the report goes. Wanting to explore her further, Robbie began working with a writer on a script and presented it to WB.
However, Robbie didn’t just fall for Harley Quinn – she became enchanted by several of DC’s female characters, namely Batgirl and the Birds of Prey, who may also make appearances in the film in some capacity.
A Harley Quinn film makes sense, especially if Robbie’s depiction is well-received come August. WB has been struggling with their DC films, but Harley is a universally popular character and there’s no doubt fans want to see more of her.
You’ll first be able to see Margot Robbie as Harley Quinn in Suicide Squad, which is set to hit theaters on August 5.
