The 5 reasons why Michelle Jenneke should play Harley Quinn in a Batman film are a result of her warm-up dance video from the 2012 IAAF World Junior Championship in Barcelona, Spain.

The 5 Reasons Why Michelle Henenke Should Play Batman’s Harley Quinn:

1.) Michelle Jenneke is hilarious. 

She is not even trying to be funny and she is hilarious. She is a natural.

2.) She is athletic.

Australian hurdler Jenneke can bring athleticism to the role. Harley Quinn has super strength and agility.

3.) She is coordinated.

Jumping hurdles takes a lot of coordination and Jenneke has the lion’s share of that attribute.

4.) She is out-going.

Shelley Jenneke is doing her warm up routine in front of everyone at the 2012 IAAF World Junior Championship and on camera in Barcelona, Spain. The camera “showed the hurdler doing cutesy moves like she [w]as a cheerleader. What made it so dramatic was the music woven into Michelle’s dance. The song, “Boys (Summertime Love) by Sabrina played along, as if she were really dancing to her theme song.” Jenneke is obviously not afraid of other people’s opinions.

5. She can do her own stunts.

Learning how to hurtle took discipline. She “took first place in the 100-meter hurdles” in Barcelona. She can apply the same work ethic to Harley Quinn’s various stunt work and fisticuff.

Harley Quinn’s origin:

She becomes fascinated with the Joker while interning at Arkham, and volunteers to analyze him. She falls hopelessly in love nearly instantly with the Joker during their sessions, and she helps him escape from the asylum more than once. When the Joker is returned to Arkham after a battle with Batman, the sight of her badly injured patient drives Harleen insane, leaving her to quit her psychiatrist job and don a jester costume to become Harley Quinn, the Joker’s sidekick and on/off girlfriend. She later becomes fast friends with Poison Ivy, who injects her with antitoxin which gives her super strength, agility, and toxin immunity.
