Margot Robbie Advises DCEU Producers To Stand By Their Directors

I, honestly, I don't think anyone knows what's going to be the next thing to happen.

It's easy to spot the parallels between Robbie's idea and Gotham City Sirens, which is centered on the idea of Harley teaming up with the iconic DC villains Catwoman and Poison Ivy.

This is something the DC Extended Universe has previously struggled with, as Suicide Squad director David Ayer - who is expected to direct Gotham City Sirens - has previously suggested there was plenty of studio meddling behind the scenes. Speaking to MTV, Robbie lifted the lid a little on the Harley Quinn film that she is developing.

When asked what she is itching to do with the character that she didn't get the chance to do in Suicide Squad, the Australian actress said that she wants to see Harley Quinn "with other women".

"It's a story about three fantastic women who are trying to find their way in the world, and realize that they have more power together than they do individually", Ayer told IGN.

Meanwhile, Gotham City Sirens is still in development despite rumors of cancellation.

Just like the all female Ghost Busters, and the forthcoming all female Oceans 11 spin-off, is it possible that there could be a female-led iteration of Suicide Squad happening in the near future? Gavin O'Connor, best known for his directorial work on The Accountant, Warrior and Pride and Glory, will direct the supervillain sequel. A year later, an "insane and twisted" Joker and Harley flick was announced. Although Robbie isn't positive which movie will begin production first, she is prepared to begin resuming her role as the unhinged villainess sometime in 2018. That means unlike reported films such as Martin Scorsese's Joker movie, the events that occur in the Harley/Joker movie will be canonical.

Well, if you can't get enough of Miss Quinn, we've got great news for you. Polygon has reached out to Warner Bros. for more information and will update if that becomes available.
