It was detailed that a film starring "several" of Dc's female heroes and villains was in the works, but it appears as though we might be getting an entirely separate Harley Quinn film as well.
That would seem to include Robbie's movie though, as she's just spoken to MTV about her project: "I've been working on a separate spinoff Harley thing for a while", she said. I mean, it's hard to kind of talk about it because all of this stuff is kind of like under lock and key.
Harley Quinn solo movie still in development
The success of Patty Jenkins directorial Wonder Woman proved that audiences love well-made female centric superhero movies, and although Harley Quinn can not be called a superhero by any stretch of imagination, she is a strong female comic-book badass and with the praise Robbie got, it makes commercial sense to cash in on the success.
"I want to see her with other women", Robbie explained. Months before Amanda Waller's Task Force X hit had even theaters, the studio fast-tracked its first Harley Quinn spinoff feature starring the Gotham City Sirens. A project now called Gotham City Sirens is also in development with David Ayer directing, and Robbie producing as well as playing Harley. There's a lot going on right now. And Margot Robbie says you can add one more Harley-centric project to your bucket list: a solo movie. I kept saying when we were shooting Suicide Squad, 'She needs her girlfriends. There are four Harley Quinn movies on the schedule and at least two more Wonder Woman films. 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. "But she needs a little girl gang". It seems like it's best for Warner Bros.to flawless their craft instead of tacking on even more projects on their already-hefty plate.More news: Dogs are 'brainier' than cats, says neuron-counting study
