Harley Quinn is getting her own ensemble movie

Harley Quinn (2)

Forget about Orphan Puncher vs Stuporman, because it looks like Warner Bros. is getting ready to place all their eggs in the Suicide Squad basket. And when compared to the dour slugfest of Batman V Superman, that may not be a bad idea. Suicide Squad stars some of the worst metahuman super-criminals in the DC universe, a ragtag band of miscreants coerced into running some black ops for the US government which includes the likes of  Deadshot, Killer Croc and Harley Quinn.

It’s that last name that has DC and Warner Bros. excited however, as Margot Robbie’s mad harlequin is getting her own movie.

The Hollywood Reporter says that Robbie will get her own film that will have her reprising her role, but here’s the interesting bit: She’ll be joined by other femme fatales. The report claims that several female heroes and villains from the DC Comics collection will pop up in supporting roles, including Batgirl, the Birds of Prey that usually includes Black Canary and the Huntress and several other names are being thrown around. No writer has been officially revealed yet, but THR says that she is busy working on the script.

SUICIDE SQUAD

The report also says that Robbie is pushing hard for the film to happen, as she has fallen in love with the role of Harley Quinn after researching the role for Suicide Squad, bringing on the writer to help her pitch it to Warner Bros. who have “snapped it up”. And I’m down with that. Robbie looks like she’ll be stealing the show in Suicide Squad as the Joker’s number one lady, a chaotic force of nature in tights who is always has a smile on her face.

And considering how Harley Quinn comics have been rather excellent lately, there’s plenty of great material to draw from. Gotham City Sirens, anyone?

    Remember when every teen aged boy had a poster of Cindy Crawford or Claudia Schaeffer hanging above their beds, I think Margot Robbie (as she’s depicted as Harley) would probably be the new perfect fit for it…

            LOL! I had the same… issue. Mine was a bit rumpled, so before I put it up I had it on the dining room table under a few heavy books to flatten it out nicely. Couple of hours later I came to get it & everything’s gone. “Um… mom… what did you do with my poster?” “Oh, I threw it away because I thought it was rubbish.” She wasn’t happy when I went bin-diving to get it back. At least she didn’t tear it up.

            HAHAHA!!! Luckily both of my parents couldn’t tell a DOS command from an ostrich feather, so at least I could still play the game, but being dragged by the ear, said poster in hand, to chuck it away…it was totally worth it…

    I’m not sold on this movie. Everyone is absolutely infatuated with Harley Quinn from this movie and suddenly all the accuracy to the comics mean nothing simply because of that. I’ll wait to see whether the movie is actually good, but from what I’ve seen it’s been a crowdpleaser in its core.

    Batman vs Superman wasn’t a terrible movie. Sure they shoved way too much in there. More than they should’ve, but it wasn’t a bad movie. There were so many easter eggs and so many little notes to the comics and animated movies that completely went over the heads of those who aren’t familiar with it. It had so much in there that the true fans would appreciate (minus Alexander, and Doomday’s 10min screentime).

    Still in two minds about a Harley movie. It’s like what I read about Xmen: Apoc, they focus so much on Mystique. very likely because Jenn Lawrence is hot property.
    That’s the sense I get there with Harley Quinn and Margot Robbie. They’re not focusing on the character, but rather the actress portraying her.

      It has Robbie’s ass in it, so according to the majority it’s the best thing to happen on film.

        If you just want to see ass then may I suggest pornhub. Megan Fox also had a nice ass but it still didn’t stop transformers from being a terrible movie .

        So with that said, who’d make a better Harley?

          I don’t have an issue with her or whether she makes a good Harley, I’m talking about how the writers and director are portraying her.
          To be honest, before movie this I’d never even heard of her. So I’ve got nothing to judge her on, but if you’ve seen the trailers, 70% of the trailer is either her butt or her boobs. I don’t care about that, I care them doing the character Harley Quinn justice.
          That’s it, that’s my rant. 🙂

            Hehehe, I get where you’re coming from, where the “sexy sexy” side of Harley was simply to catch attention for a millisecond, it is now used quite extensively, to be fair though, she is quite a good actress, I say good, not the best, but she should do Harley at least a handful of justice. Whereas Jared Leto as joker….I’m not so sure…

            Yea man. That Joker I’m not excited for at all. I think in the end Harley is going to be the “main” character of the movie. The new Joker’s looks alone are, well, a joke.

          • Greylingad[He Charges!]

            May 17, 2016 at 15:57

            Yup!! As if they tried to find a common ground between a normal looking person with some “dark and scary” make up on, with Joker it’s always balls to the wall crazy, there is no middle ground, if you go anything less, you’re setting yourself up for failure… No one wants an almost angry Batman…

            Haha. So true man. I just feel like the one thing that Joker isn’t about he’s ended up looking like now…a common thug.
            Like you say, with the half-way crazy thing…those tattoos. You honestly think joker would have “damaged” tattooed on himself? You know how many teenaged girls with issues have “damaged” tattooed on them.

            May 17, 2016 at 17:38

            Even if they had to give him tattoos, rather make it one big one that makes sense, like a batman character being hanged or something, but those make him look like he was mistaken for a colouring book in a prison yard…
