Harley Quinn Confirmed For Suicide Squad Movie!


Well, well, well, if this is no surprise! Fans have been hoping for it, calling for it, pleading for it and now it seems that the character of Harley Quinn has been cast according to very recent reports all across cyber space.

Yep, Harley Quinn will be recruited in David Ayer's upcoming Suicide Squad movie. The lucky actress to play the role is Margot Robbie, The Wolf of Wallstreet actress. This pretty face will be the Joker's strange, quirky and obsessed #1 fan on the big screen and part of DC/Warner's attempt to build a unified shared universe of comic book movies on film. 

Well, at least, Margot Robbie looks like the character or won't have any trouble looks-wise to pull off the popular Batman character, so I'm all for this move. Great news for female comic fans and Batman fans, as Harley Quinn sure will get her debut on the big screen.

Also, it seems that the folks at WB are intending to throw Joker in the mix as well. It looks like Jared Leto is the top contender to play the popular Batman villain, but nothing has been confirmed as of yet in terms of who is playing The Joker. 

Those will be some pretty big shoes to fill for whoever signs on to play the next Clown Prince of Crime, and it's a bit weird that Joker will be introduced outside of a Batman flick. But, there's nothing wrong with mixing it up a little bit, and I'm sure DC Comics and Warner intend to do just that.

Also, because the Joker is involved somehow, speculation just might point to the Joker and Harley Quinn being villains in the movie. Seems like a logical assumption, but who really knows as of yet. Harley Quinn has been a recent notable Suicide Squad member in the New 52, but the Joker hasn't.

So for all of you who threw money down on Batman Adventures #12, I'm pretty sure you're now all smiling now that it's confirmed Harley Quinn will really, really be in the David Ayer directed Suicide Squad movie slated for 2016! Will be interesting to see her take on the character.

    1. I agree, I think she'll do just fine. As for Will Smith, who knows who he'll play. Captain Boomerang seems a bit far-fetched. I can't really see him playing a cowardly villain like Boomerang, but maybe he can pull it off. Be good to see him finally play a villain.

    1. Be interesting who Tom Hardy is playing. Ryan Gossling has passed on the Suicide Squad. I can see Tom as Deadshot or Rick Flag Jr.

      Nope, have not yet done Legion of Superheroes yet.

    1. Nevermind, Amazon says it was published April, 1993. I suppose it depends on whether industry considers it a book or a comic book. The book is in sequential art format but comes with a cassette tape so it's a tough call. Some fans may call it the first appearance of Harley Quinn and debate about it, but I doubt the comic book industry will note it as such.

      Still, it's a pretty cool collectible.
