Margot Robbie Harley Quinn Suicide Squad Spinoff Movie In Development

It's rumored that Margot Robbie may be getting a Harley Quinn movie, which would spinoff from August's Suicide Squad.

THR reports Warner Bros. is already contemplating a spinoff for the DC Entertainment anti-heroine, Harley Quinn. 

It's also said not only will Margot Robbie star in the spinoff, but produce as well.

According to the report, the movie is not a solo Harley Quinn movie, but a film focusing on several of DC’s female heroes and villains with Batgirl and the Birds of Prey mentioned.

It is likely Black Canary could be among the mix of female heroes used as the Arrow TV show recently killed off their own version. We know from Suicide Squad that WB has axed TV characters that are used in the movies (other than the uber popular Grant Gustin Flash).

DC Entertainment also launched a new female-oriented brand aimed at young girls with DC Super Hero Girls, which features Harley Quinn, Wonder Woman, Supergirl, Batgirl, Bumblebee, Poison Ivy, Katana and many more.

Margot Robbie is said to have pitched the idea for the movie as when she received the Harley Quinn part, she delved deep into the history of the comic books and also is said to have brought a writer on board (hence the producer credit).

Margot Robbie also stars in the upcoming Legend of Tarzan for WB.

"Suicide Squad" has an August 5, 2016 release date directed by David Ayer starring Will Smith as Deadshot, Jared Leto as the Joker, Margot Robbie as Harley Quinn, Cara Delevingne as Enchantress, Jai Courtney as Boomerang, Joel Kinnaman as Rick Flag, Viola Davis as Amanda Waller, Adam Beach as Slipknot, Karen Fukuhara as Katana, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje as Killer Croc, Jay Hernandez as El Diablo, and Scott Eastwood in an unknown role.
