Margot Robbie said in a recent interview with Entertainment Weekly that she would be taking significant time from Harley Quinn and the DC cinematic world after the productions of Cathy Yan’s “Birds of Prey” and James Gunn’s “The Suicide Squad.” There are currently no DC projects in the works for the actress.
Robbie told EW, “I was sort of like, oof, I need a vacation from Harley because she’s exhausting.” “I’m not sure when we’ll see her again. I’m just as curious as everyone else.”
Robbie’s interview with Entertainment Weekly took place in June, and the Oscar nominee appeared shocked when the discussion turned to Zack Snyder’s decision to kill Harley Quinn in the epilogue of “Zack Snyder’s Justice League.” A conversation between Ben Affleck’s Batman and Jared Leto’s Joker set in the Knightmare timeline reveals Harley Quinn died in Batman’s arms. While the DC universe is soon to launch a multiverse with many iterations of the same character, Robbie is the Harley Quinn in the timeline with Affleck and Leto. Robbie’s Harley Quinn debuted opposite Leto’s Joker in “Suicide Squad,” which included an Affleck/Batman cameo.
