Last week came a report that Margot Robbie‘s Harley Quinn character would not be returning for James Gunn’s in the works “The Suicide Squad” with that film serving as something of a minor reboot as much as a sequel to 2016’s “Suicide Squad” in which Robbie debuted as the character.
Robbie is currently reprising the role, filming the upcoming girl gang film “Birds of Prey,” and the Forbes report indicated that she wasn’t up for any other DC projects at this time – including “Gotham City Sirens” or a “Joker and Harley” movie. Now the report has been amended with Robbie potentially returning for the ‘Squad’ follow-up, saying:
“I have learned from sources close to production that in fact, the information about Harley Quinn being absent from the new Suicide Squad movie is no longer up to date – she is indeed expected to appear in James Gunn’s The Suicide Squad, which is expected to begin production later this year.”
Gunn is taking over from David Ayer who helmed the first one. The “Birds of Prey” movie hits cinemas early 2020 with “The Suicide Squad” coming August 2021.
