CBMB: Margot Robbie’s Harley Quinn to Get her Own Stand-Alone Film

By Muuka Muyumba

Call if the female Justice League vs Legion of Doom, a report has sprung up online that Warner Bros. and DC Films are positioning a solo film for Harley Quinn, which will actually be a project to launch several of DC’s female heroes and villains, with names such as Batgirl and Birds of Prey being mentioned. THR reports that star Margot Robbie actually brought the project to DC films even though this won’t be a typical solo film franchise vehicle. Robbie went as far as bringing on the unnamed writer on the project.

Robbie hasn’t been nominated for many prestigious awards, but she has become one of the bigger female movie stars in Hollywood with the potential for Jennifer Lawrence-level heights of popularity. She jumped out of the screen in Wolf of Wall Street, but has been filling her resume with interesting films like Z for Zachariah, About Time, and Whiskey Tango Foxtrot. She has become a darling of Warner Bros. having starred in bigger tentpoles like Focus and the upcoming Suicide Squad with Will Smith, as well as this July’s Tarzan.

Harley Quinn is one of those rare instances when a cartoon character breathes life into the comics. Batman: The Animated Series writer Paul Dini created the character for the show, and was so popular as the Joker’s girl Friday that DC worked her into the comics in The Batman Adventures #12 (September 1993). Her origin was more thoroughly examined in the 2004 graphic novel Mad Love by Dini. One of the most popular animated ‘Harley’ episodes was “Girls Night Out!” on The New Batman Adventures, outside of her introduction, is her team up with Poison Ivy and Livewire as they have a night out of criminal activity attempting to avoid Supergirl and Batgirl.

 

 

Robbie makes her debut as the anti-hero/villain in Suicide Squad which hits theaters on August 5, 2016.
