Warner Bros. Will Produce A Harley Quinn, Female-Centric DCEU Film

Warner Bros., currently promoting DCEU’s next feature film Suicide Squad, has just announced that they are producing an untitled spin-off film for Margot Robbie’s Harley Quinn.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the film won’t just focus on the crazed villainess we all know and love. Instead, they’re planning to bring in an array of female DC heroes and villains. Names included in the mix are Batgirl, Birds of Prey, and as of yet unconfirmed but maybe if I write it down it will happen: Poison Ivy. Because Harley Quinn and Poison Ivy together are like the ill-behaved, sexy version of Abbot & Costello. Sort of. You get it.

Sources say Robbie, the actress playing Quinn in Suicide Squad, which will be released in theaters August 5 of this year, took the role of the Joker’s sometime right-hand woman and immediately dove into the comics. She took it upon herself to drive this project forward, and she is even listed as the film’s producer. She brought a female writer with her, whose name we haven’t been given this early in the project’s development.

Harley Quinn is one of the most popular characters in DC Comics, and her graphic novel/product sales have been going through the roof, especially since Suicide Squad was announced. Warner Bros.’ decision to go forward with this project, which seems like it will be created by women and filled with women superheroes and supervillains, is a massive nod to their female readers, and their male readers who love female characters.

One can only assume that a project like this will destroy at the box office when it’s released, considering how many fans have been asking for female superheroes to get their own films. This won’t just be a Harley Quinn film. It will be a DC Femme Fest.

Sign. Me. Up.
