Harley Quinn Movie Reportedly in Development

Originally posted on Capeless Crusader on May 19, 2016.

Even though Suicide Squad won’t be out for a few more months, DC has enough faith in Margot Robbie’s portrayal of Harley Quinn that they are already considering making a spin-off movie about her.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Robbie will be both staring and producing the untitled Harley Quinn movie, but it will not just be a solo film for the character. THR mentioned that the project will also help introduce several other female heroes and villains into the DC movie universe. So far only Batgirl and the Birds of Prey have been thrown around as possibilities but nothing official has been confirmed yet.

Robbie was also reportedly the one who pitched the movie to Warner Bros after she landed her role in Suicide Squad. It’s said that she researched Harley Quinn’s history, “fell for DC’s female characters,” and brought on a female writer to help develop the ensemble film. She presented it to Warner Bros, who “snapped it up.” The writer attached to the project has not been named yet, although it sounds like she is already working on a draft for the movie.

It’s currently unknown if Jared Leto’s Joker will be appearing in the movie in some degree or if Cara Delevingne’s Enchantress or Karen Fukuhara’s Katana will be among the female DC characters that are planned to be featured in the movie.

So far the film does not have a set release date, and has not been officially added to Warner Bros slate of DC films yet.

Suicide Squad directed by David Ayeris scheduled for release on August 5, 2016 and will star Will Smith as Deadshot, Joel Kinnaman as Rick Flagg, Robbie as Harley Quinn, Jai Courtney as Captain Boomerang, Delevingne as Enchantress, Fukuhara as Katana, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje as Killer Croc, Jay Hernandez as El DIablo, Adam Beach as Slipknot, Viola Davis as Amanda Waller, and Leto as The Joker.

Suicide Squad Reportedly Undergoing Reshoots to Add in More Humor

One of the most common complaints from critics of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice is that the film is incredibly dark and lacks humor. Whether or not if you agree with those opinions from the critics, it sounds like Warner Bros may be trying to remedy that complaint by making their next DC film Suicide Squad, a little bit more light-hearted.

According to birthmoviesdeath.com, Warner Bros is supposedly spending “tens of millions of dollars” to reshoot the movie in order to add in some more comedic elements to film. The site quotes their source as stating that although the trailer for the film contained quite a bit of humor, “every joke in the movie is in that trailer.” The reshoots are reportedly being shot now to increase the comedic tone and to lighten up the interactions between the characters to make them more appealing to audiences.

Despite the reshoots, Suicide Squad directed by David Ayeris still scheduled for release on August 5, 2016 and will star Will Smith as Deadshot, Joel Kinnaman as Rick Flagg, Margot Robbie as Harley Quinn, Jai Courtney as Captain Boomerang, Cara Delevingne as Enchantress, Karen Fukuhara as Katana, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje as Killer Croc, Jay Hernandez as El DIablo, Adam Beach as Slipknot, Viola Davis as Amanda Waller, and Jared Leto as The Joker.Ben Affleck’s Batman will also be making a brief cameo appearance in the movie.

Suicide Squad Sequel Reportedly Already in The Works

According to a report that was buried at the bottom of a story on TheWrap, Warner Bros is already working on a plan for a possible Suicide Squad sequel.

The site reports that the upcoming police thriller Bright, staring Will Smith and Joel Edgerton, will be directed by David Ayer who along with Smith, are going to slip this movie into their schedules before a planned 2017 shoot for a sequel to DC’s supervillain film Suicide Squad.

Not much else is known about Bright aside that the script is from Max Landis, who is currently writing DC’s Superman: American Alien miniseries.

Warner Bros has yet to issue an official announcement about Suicide Squad 2, and likely won’t until we’re either much closer to the first film’s release date or after the earnings for its opening weekend are revealed.

Suicide Squad is scheduled for release on August 5, 2016 and stars Will Smith as Deadshot, Joel Kinnaman as Rick Flagg, Margot Robbie as Harley Quinn, Jai Courtney as Captain Boomerang, Cara Delevingne as Enchantress, Karen Fukuhara as Katana, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje as Killer Croc, Jay Hernandez as El DIablo, Adam Beach as Slipknot, Viola Davis as Amanda Waller, and Jared Leto as The Joker. Since some of these characters will be dying in the movie, don’t expect to see all of them appear in the next movie if there is one.
