Harley Quinn’s Fate: Margot Robbie Expresses Interest in Passing the Torch to Another Actress in New DC Universe

LOS ANGELES – Margot Robbie’s future as Harley Quinn in the new DC Universe has been a topic of speculation among fans. While rumors have indicated that the “Barbie” star has agreed to reprise her role, Robbie recently hinted that she might be ready to move on from the character.

In an interview with Variety, Robbie expressed her desire for Harley Quinn to be a character that could be passed on to other actresses, similar to the many iconic male characters in the industry. She noted the versatility of the character and the endless possibilities that other actors could explore with it.

The upcoming DC Universe is said to serve as a relaunch of Warner Bros.’ previous DC Comics-based universe, with elements of a “semi-reboot.” Some characters and actors will remain, while others may be replaced.

James Gunn, who is working on a second season of “Peacemaker” and a spin-off focused on Viola Davis’ Amanda Waller, responded to Robbie’s comments on Threads. Although he hasn’t spoken to Robbie about Harley Quinn in a long time, Gunn expressed his interest in working with her again as Harley or in a different role.

While it remains uncertain when and where Robbie’s Quinn might appear again, it is likely that we haven’t seen the last of her. Gunn previously confirmed that there won’t be a direct sequel to “The Suicide Squad,” but fans will surely hope to see more of the beloved characters introduced in the film, such as Bloodsport, Ratcatcher, and King Shark.

“The Suicide Squad” follows a group of dangerous supervillains, including Bloodsport, Peacemaker, King Shark, and Harley Quinn, who are sent on a mission to the enemy-infested island of Corto Maltese. Equipped with high-tech weapons, they navigate the treacherous jungle in a search-and-destroy operation, with Col. Rick Flag overseeing their actions on the ground.

As of now, there are no plans for anyone else to play Harley Quinn, except in Todd’s movie or the animated show(s), according to Gunn.

In conclusion, Margot Robbie’s portrayal of Harley Quinn has endeared the character to fans, and while her future in the DC Universe remains uncertain, her departure would be bittersweet. James Gunn’s ongoing projects and his interest in collaborating with Robbie suggest that there may still be more to come from this beloved anti-heroine.
