THE SUICIDE SQUAD Star Margot Robbie Is Done Taking A Break Playing Harley Quinn; Hopes For BATGIRL Team-Up
The Suicide Squad star Margot Robbie debunks reports she's planning to take a break from playing Harley Quinn, all while sharing her excitement for a possible team-up with Leslie Grace's Batgirl...
There's been no word on what Warner Bros. actually has planned for the fan-favourite anti-hero following her reunion with Task Force X, though it's fair to say the vast majority of fans are hoping for a Gotham City Sirens movie. David Ayer was developing that project once upon a time, though it was sidelined after the negative reaction to Suicide Squad and Birds of Prey became a priority instead.
Talking to Entertainment Tonight, Robbie debunked reports that she's planning to take a break from Harley, teasing her DCEU future. "No, I've had enough of a break. I'm ready to do her again," she admitted. "I did Birds of Prey and The Suicide Squad back-to-back, so that was a lot of Harley all in a one year period, but that was a while ago now. I'm always ready for more Harley!"
In the same interview, the site mentioned that In The Heights star Leslie Grace was recently cast as Barbara Gordon in HBO Max's Batgirl movie. "I didn't know that! Oh, how cool! That's wicked. She's amazing," Robbie enthused before jokingly adding, "Yeah, I'm calling-- Warner Bros, can you put me through to DC? Yeah, thank you. I'm on it. Don't worry."

That was something fans hoped to see in Birds of Prey, of course, and while we're not banking on Harley showing up in the Caped Crusader's small screen solo outing, they could cross paths eventually. For now, the majority are surely hoping Warner Bros. chooses to explore Harley's romantic relationship with Poison Ivy (something Robbie has expressed interest in many times in the past).
