2020 was speculated to be an enormous 12 months for female-led blockbusters, and probably the most uncommon of the bunch was Margot Robbie’s Birds of Prey. Starring Robbie as Harley Quinn alongside a bunch of grungy feminine heroes, Birds of Prey was lavished with reward by critics for its humor and motion. Sadly, regardless of garnering a loyal fanbase, the film didn’t do wonders on the field workplace. In a latest interview with Den of Geek, Robbie was requested a few doable Birds of Prey sequel, to which she replied within the destructive.
“I do not know if that’s on the horizon anytime quickly. I do not suppose it is a no. However no, there isn’t any sequel within the works that I am conscious of at this stage.”
Whereas Birds of Prey didn’t do the type of enterprise Warner Bros. had hoped for, Harley Quinn stays one in every of their hottest characters. A lot in order that the animated sequence Harley Quinn starring Kaley Cuoco because the voice of Harley was a breakout success.
In the meantime, regardless of the blended response to Birds of Prey and 2016’s Suicide Squad, followers usually agree that Robbie’s portrayal of Harley Quinn in both movies was glorious, and one thing we’d like extra of. And that’s one thing followers are going to get to see quickly. Robbie’s Harley will subsequent be seen in James Gunn’s sequel/reboot The Suicide Squad. In a earlier interview, the actress had defined that this time round, Harley won’t need to shoulder the burden of the lead storyline all by herself.
“One of many first issues I stated to James was, I believe Harley is a catalyst of chaos. She’s not essentially your narrative middle, and generally it is nice when plot factors can relaxation on different characters’ shoulders, and she or he will be the factor that erupts a complete sequence of occasions. That is one thing I felt he agreed with, primarily based on what I used to be studying within the script.”
Maybe the principle lesson discovered from Birds of Prey is that Harley works greatest when the story doesn’t revolve round her, however as an alternative, like Captain Jack Sparrow, is great in a serious supporting function. The Suicide Squad being an ensemble film ought to permit Harley to bounce off many different attention-grabbing characters, all with their private arcs separate from her, whereas Harley is free to do what she does greatest, trigger mayhem and have enjoyable within the ensuing carnage.
Written and directed by James Gunn, The Suicide Squad stars Viola Davis as Amanda Waller, Joel Kinnaman as Rick Flag, Michael Rooker as Savant, Flula Borg as Javelin, David Dastmalchian as Polka-Dot Man, Margot Robbie as Harley Quinn, Daniela Melchior as Ratcatcher 2, Idris Elba as Bloodsport, Mayling NG as Mongal, Peter Capaldi as The Thinker, Alice Braga as Solsoria, Sylvester Stallone as King Shark, Pete Davidson as Blackguard, Nathan Fillion as TDK, Sean Gunn as Weasel, Jai Courtney as Captain Boomerang, John Cena as Peacemaker, with Steve Agee, Taika Waititi and Storm Reid.
