After numerous rumors of where Margot Robbie’s Harley Quinn would show up next, it looks like we finally know from the princess of crime herself.
Out promoting her film Terminal, Robbie spoke with Flickering Myth briefly about the status of her projects in the DCEU. She confirmed the much-discussed Birds of Prey will be where we finally see her take on Harley Quinn pop up again. She says that the film is currently targeting an R-rating, a “much smaller budget” than Suicide Squad, a production start of January.
Robbie explained to Fandom where she sees the tone of the film going.
I will say that there are a lot of unexplored DC female characters who are unique and complicated and dark and funny and exciting – and not just for their superpowers. Actually, the ones that excite me most don’t have superpowers at all but they have, you know, pretty great backstories and all could kind of live in the world with Harley and create this cool dynamic.
Because I don’t think girl groups… I mean all my girlfriends, we’re a huge girl gang and we’re not all the same person, everyone’s very different. I guess I was really trying to put that on screen – the way we exist in everyday life as a big girl gang. Why can’t we watch that in films more?”
As to who these other characters will be is anyone’s guess at this point. There have been multiple versions of the script circulating for months now with each of them featuring different supporting characters. Batgirl, Oracle, Poison Ivy, Catwoman, and just about every other female character from DC you can think of having been included.
Warner Brothers have tapped Cathy Yan to direct from a script by Christina Hodson.
