Harley Quinn will be getting her own spinoff featuring DC female characters. As we all have heard by now, Margot Robbie who plays Harley Quinn in the hit film Suicide Squad, has been pushing for a Harley & Joker spinoff movie. According to Independent, “The Oscar-winning actor [Jared Leto] has said that there is enough deleted footage to make a full Joker movie. “There were so many scenes that got cut from the movie I couldn’t even start,” he told IGN. “Were there any that didn’t get cut? We did a lot of experimentation on the set, we explored a lot. There’s so much that we shot that’s not in the film.”
While that spinoff has yet to be greenlit, Margot will be producing and starring in a Harley Quinn spinoff that will feature DC’s female superheroes and villains. We could see characters like Bat Girl, Bird of Prey, Poison Ivy, Talia al Ghul, Killer Frost, Black Canary, Vixen, Hawk Girl or Huntress.
Margot dove into the DC universe when she snagged the role of Harley and immediately fell in love with DC’s female characters. After securing the writer herself, Margot reached out to Warner Bros. who snatched it right up.
As per MovieFone, “A script is already in the works, with a female writer, though THR’s report says that details about the project are so shrouded in secrecy that not only is the plot being kept heavily under wraps, but not even the screenwriter’s name is known. Robbie herself is shepherding the project at Warner Bros., and will produce the flick as well.”
Looks like we may be getting this spinoff sooner rather than later. If Warner Bros decides to fast track this project, this Harley Quinn film would be the second female-led movie in the DCEU, following behind Wonder Woman. It’s looking like it might fill either the Oct. 5, 2018 or the Nov. 1, 2019 dates that Warner Bros has reserved for DC movies.
Here’s hoping we get to see the women of the DC Universe!
