Warner Bros. Reportedly Have "Plans" For BATMAN Character HARLEY QUINN

Arrow producer Andrew Kreisberg has revealed that Harley Quinn's appearance in last season's Suicide Squad episode was a result of a compromise as he believes that Warner Bros. have plans for her elsewhere! There's no word on whether that will be in a movie or TV, but more details are here...

In a lengthy interview with Comic Book Resources, executive producer Andrew Kreisberg was quizzed on last season's appearance of the Suicide Squad and whether fans should expect Harley Quinn to make a full blown appearance after being teased in that episode. "I don't know about that," he admitted to the site, adding: "There are very few things we've asked DC Comics for that we haven't gotten. That was something you asked for, and what you saw is a compromise that Geoff Johns and I came up with. To even get that much was a thrill for us. I know that they may have other plans for her, but it was certainly an Easter egg that thrilled us. But the Suicide Squad will definitely be back. Whether we see the 'deranged female killer' we saw before, we'll have to wait and see." What's particularly interesting about these comments is the fact that he mentions "they" (presumably Warner Bros.) have other plans for the character, hence why he's so unsure about whether or not they'll be able to bring her back. The question now is whether we're going to see her in the rumoured Suicide Squad movie, a Batman solo outing or even her own flick! Gotham?! What do you guys think?

Be cool to see more of her on Arrow but seeing her on the big screen would be evn better. Either way, it's [frick]in' Harley Quinn!
Doopie - 8/18/2014, 5:57 PM
this is more of a batman show than gotham
alamborn19 - 8/18/2014, 5:57 PM
shes not getting her own solo flick sorry but she would be great to have as a nightwing and arrow villain where the two heroes crossover and alude to batman but not show him
Doopie - 8/18/2014, 5:58 PM
i love it though. ra's actor hasn't been announced has it? has it?
Xandera - 8/18/2014, 5:58 PM
Awesome! It'd be so awesome to see her have a role in an episode!
Dingbat - 8/18/2014, 5:59 PM
I want to see Harley Quinn in a live action movie. That would mean a new Joker. Who?
Sipprelle - 8/18/2014, 6:01 PM
Hell yeah! Guggenheim said the same for Ted Kord, so are we getting Blue Beetle AND Harley Quinn in the films? [frick]ing yes!
Grodd87 - 8/18/2014, 6:01 PM
I love Harley but can't carry her own movie and I love the suicide squad but would be better as a show then a movie.
DrKinsolving - 8/18/2014, 6:02 PM
I think it would be awesome to see Harley in a live action movie, even if it's before she becomes Harley and watching her try and treat the Joker at Arkham.... but seeing The Joker and Harley together on screen would also be awesome.

I really hope the DCCU will bring in more stories and characters from the comics, as cool as Nolan's Trilogy was, I'm so happy it's over and we have a chance to actually see the Batman from the comics

Hope she'll be on the Batman Reboot! She's an awesome character when she's done the right way... I'm sure BvS will be a GREAT film.

I highly doubt it. WB is really straying from the comedy route. Unless they make her "dark" and "gritty" then maybe.

Dwayne Johnson confirms that he is Black Adam in his recent interview in Latin America.

cool !!!
koolaidbag - 8/18/2014, 6:07 PM
I've never understood why they can't have the same character appear on tv, and in film, anyone know?
Nemeres - 8/18/2014, 6:08 PM
They seem to have "plans" for lots of stuff. They sure are good at "planning" over at WB.

And yet it's Marvel raking in the bucks putting talking raccoons on screen and making people fall in love with anthropomorphic trees.

@PAF

The Joker has to be in the DCCU eventually, so I think there's definitely a chance for Harley to show up in some form, even if it's before her transformation when she's still a Doctor....

thunderforce - 8/18/2014, 6:08 PM
I always wanted him to be Black Adam
StarYeezus - 8/18/2014, 6:09 PM
That hammer perspective is confusing me.
MrCBM56 - 8/18/2014, 6:10 PM
Hm, woah....
marvel72 - 8/18/2014, 6:10 PM
she should be in a batman with the joker.
JediPhilosopher - 8/18/2014, 6:11 PM
I always liked Harley since she first appeared on TAS. A sexy character and perfect Joker sidekick imo.
Desrow - 8/18/2014, 6:11 PM
@thebest2,

Nice find mate.
AgentDrew - 8/18/2014, 6:12 PM
She should just be a villain for an episode and see how the viewers react
DrKinsolving - 8/18/2014, 6:13 PM
@BatfleckReturns

That link doesn't confirm anything, Rock says the official announcement should be made soon....
PAF - 8/18/2014, 6:13 PM
@DrKinsolving

Oh no doubt about it. If it is before her psychotic break then yea I see her being there.
Chewtoy - 8/18/2014, 6:13 PM
If Ben Afflecks older Batman is the DC Film universe standard, then the Joker must already exist... Hence Harley can be added at any time.

She's a great character if they can actually find the live-action actress to do her justice.
JediPhilosopher - 8/18/2014, 6:13 PM
Dwayne Johnson is Black Adam? That's awesome. Good pick imo.
FirstAvenger - 8/18/2014, 6:14 PM
If she's not in a Batman movie add her to the squad.
Dingbat - 8/18/2014, 6:14 PM
@DarthSandwich

TexasTwoFace - 8/18/2014, 6:14 PM
I like the character enough. But yawn. She's still just a villain, well actually a villain's sidekick typically. Wake me when DC actually announces what they are doing with some of their amazing superheroes that have been on the shelf for far too long. Not that a villain might be in a couple more episodes of Arrow, and not even a top ten Batman villain at that.
Super12 - 8/18/2014, 6:14 PM
@therealultron Thats actually a really solid list...I mean personal preferences aside thats not a bad assessment (Id put BB and MOS a little higher, IM 3 lower, and add Watchmen)
Dingbat - 8/18/2014, 6:15 PM
Who will be Shazam?
Ucantpruvdemmykids - 8/18/2014, 6:17 PM
That's the problem with DC. Why can't she appear in Arrow? She hasn't been seen in any movie or tv show before so don't get the reason why she can't appear now. The same with Batman appearing in Smallville. Just do it for the fans. You can really tell DC wants to get DCU off the ground but WB just keeps freaking it up with bad bone headed decisions.
MBZ1993 - 8/18/2014, 6:17 PM
Kate Sackoff is HARLEY!!!!!!
ManWithNoName - 8/18/2014, 6:18 PM
Could that suicide squad movie rumor be true?
Nomis - 8/18/2014, 6:18 PM
I was hoping she would be on Arrow this season.
MrBlackjack - 8/18/2014, 6:20 PM
I don't see her ever getting her own solo flick, a solo Batman flick seems to be a whiles away, so I'd say a Suicide Squad film is the likeliest. I think a S.S. TV is likelier than a film though.
DrKinsolving - 8/18/2014, 6:21 PM
@BatfleckReturns

Yeah, I read it, it's nothing new, nothing he hasn't said before.... hopefully we get an official announcement soon, and hopefully it's Black Adam, imo
blackandyellow - 8/18/2014, 6:21 PM
Black Adam better lead the Legion of Doom then. He's too big to be a throwaway villain.
MrBlackjack - 8/18/2014, 6:23 PM
I think it's even likelier that they're holding her back for now just in case a use for her somewhere else arises in the near future.
