SUICIDE SQUAD (2016): Margot Robbie Wants Harley Quinn Spin-Off

Margot Robbie Suicide Squad

Margot Robbie wants a Suicide Squad spin-off for Harley Quinn. The Whisky Tango Foxtrot and The Legend of Tarzan actress is interested in appearing in a solo film featuring the DC Comics villain.

Although the film has been savaged by critics, many conceded that Robbie’s turn as Harley Quinn was one of the highlights of the film. The huge success of the movie also suggests that Warner Bros. will move ahead with a sequel soon, giving some degree of momentum to the star’s notion.

Describing what she liked most about playing Harley, Robbie said that she appreciated the chance to play “an intricate character with an awesome story arc,” also adding that she would like co-star Jared Leto to reprise his role as The Joker in her proposed spin-off:

Robbie went on to praise Leto’s performance as the Clown Prince of Crime, touching on some of the scenes that were cut out of the film. “There was so much of our backstory…they probably realized that the emotional through-line of the story had to be the mission we were on, and kind of explaining The Enchantress’ position and all that kind of stuff, and the backstory stuff — though it’s like magic…there’s a lot but it just didn’t make sense to confuse the present storyline with that.”

As for a spinoff starring the maniacal couple? Robbie really wants one. “I’m trying to make that happen. Not for anything specifically, but just something — there’s so much more to do.”
