2020 and 2021 were a great time for harley quinn fans, as we had two movies with Margot Robbie’s Clown Princess in two years. Birds of Prey (And the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn) had Harls emerge from the Joker’s shadow in his own all-female team-up movie, and then the suicide squad saw her steal the show once again as a member of the latest Task Force X team.
Sadly, Dr. Quinzel has been absent from the DCEU since last summer, and we’re yet to hear about any other comic projects Robbie might have in the works. But TSS Director James Gunn has now offered a ray of hope for the anti-heroine’s legion of fans, with a teasing tweet indicating he might have something cooking with the Oscar-nominated actress.
When a fan shared a photo of Gunn and Robbie hugging in the suicide squad premiere and demanded the filmmaker “bring Harley in for another project,” Gunn responded, “Not a bad idea.” It’s far from a confirmation, then, but we’ll take everything we can get at this point.
There may be a couple of reasons why Harley’s future in the DCEU is currently in flux. With Birds of prey Y TSS Both underperforming at the box office, Warner Bros. may have lost some faith in the character’s ability to attract audiences. The biggest reason, though, is that Robbie is so busy. The 31-year-old star has countless projects in the works at once. Right now, for example, he is shooting the Greta Gerwig movie. Barbie movie.
But if anyone is going to bring Harley back into the franchise, it’s Gunn, as he’s become the custodian of the DCEU’s side of the squad. he is already working Pacifier the second season and a spin-off for Viola Davis’s Amanda Waller. While we wait for more of Robbie’s rogue Gothamite, at least the third season of the harley quinn The animated series, starring Kaley Cuoco, will premiere on HBO Max in July.
