Margot Robbie is just as big a Harlivy stan as we are!
In a recent interview with Entertainment Tonight, Robbie talked about her iconic character’s love life, teaming up with other superheroes, and she even cleared up those rumors about "taking a break" from her beloved role as DC's badass bisexual antihero Harley Quinn.
"She’s definitely independent from Mister J for the first time," she said about Harley in The Suicide Squad. "Even though in Birds of Prey, they’d broken up at the start, she was still very much not OK with not being with him. In this one, she’s not even thinking about him, which is really fun and just a new, interesting mindset and place for Harley to be in her life."
She also tossed out a delicious hint that we might see some flirting with her fellow Squad members. "She’s looking for new love, and she’s looking in all the wrong places," she said.
Robbie also commented on the recent casting of In the Heights star Leslie Grace as Batgirl. "I didn't know that! Oh, how cool! That's wicked. She's amazing," she said. "Yeah, I'm calling — Warner Bros, can you put me through to DC? Yeah, thank you. I'm on it. Don't worry."
Both Robbie and fans have been begging for a Gotham City Sirens movie ever since the star stepped into Harley’s short-shorts. That movie, a would-be sequel to Birds of Prey, would see Harley, Poison Ivy (possibly played by bicon Megan Fox?), and Catwoman teaming up against a possible team of Batgirl, Huntress (played by Mary Elizabeth Winstead), and Black Canary (Jurnee Smollett).
Robbie also cleared up those rumors that she wants to take a break from playing the character. "No, I’ve had enough of a break," she told ET. "I’m ready to do her again. I did Birds of Prey and The Suicide Squad back-to-back, so that was a lot of Harley all in a one-year period, but that was a while ago now. I’m always ready for more Harley!"
So are we!
The Suicide Squad also features Michael Rooker as the character Savant, who is queer in the comics and in a relationship with fellow mercenary Creote.
