Will Margot Robbie return as Harley Quinn? Director James Gunn has called for the actress to reprise the DC Comics character.
The Suicide Squad director and writer James Gunn revealed on Twitter his desire to see Margot Robbie return to the DC Extended Universe as Harley Quinn . A fan asked Warner Bros. Pictures and the filmmaker to bring the female character back for another project. Gunn simply responded, “Not a bad idea.” The truth is that the director has great appreciation for the actress and her character.
James Gunn and Margot Robbie’s working relationship is grounded pretty well in the past. In fact, the director agreed to some of the Australian actress’s requests to change certain things about the character of Harley Quinn in The Suicide Squad . That’s the level of trust they have.
The crossover between Marvel and DC with the villain and Groot
The two have spoken since early 2021 about reuniting for another Harley Quinn project. James Gunn went on to hint to fans that “you have to wait and see what happens with the character.” The filmmaker also admitted long ago to having discussed with Warner Bros. Pictures about a possible Harley Quinn spinoff that would crossover with Groot . So we could see an official crossover between Marvel Studios and the DCEU. This would be something historic, it would mean the return of the villain and would allow the two worlds of the filmmaker and the superheroes to be united in a single film.
James Gunn and Margot Robbie built an incredibly healthy and strong relationship with each other in The Suicide Squad . It was during the filmmaker’s transition from Marvel Studios to Warner Bros. Pictures. The director even described her as the best actress she had worked with in her entire career . An incredible compliment from one of the most important filmmakers in the industry today. She joins those who have already made names of the likes of Martin Scorsese or Quentin Tarantino about the Harley Quinn actress.
