Margot Robbie’s Harley Quinn WILL be part of James Gunn’s Suicide Squad sequel

February 19th, 2019 by Marc Comments

Wait, so… Harley WILL be in James Gunn’s The Suicide Squad after all?

You’ll recall a few days ago that it was reported that Margot Robbie – star of Suicide Squad and Birds of Prey – will not be appearing in Gotham City Sirens, the (scrapped) Harley/Joker movie or Gunn’s sequel/reboot/Guardians by any other name (here).

However, now it seems that DC/Warners (wisely) is keeping Robbie front and centre in its universe.

The word “relaunch” has been favored over the word “sequel” in reports regarding The Suicide Squad. The return of Harley Quinn puts this film firmly in sequel territory even if its references to David Ayer’s 2016 film are otherwise minimal.

As long as Margot Robbie is willing and able to be part of this franchise, it makes sense to bring her back. Her portrayal of Harley Quinn was easily the most popular aspect of Suicide Squad and the main reason the film succeeded financially despite being hammered by critics.

We have little else to add to this except… good.

What say you all?

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
