WB Reportedly Has No Current Plans For Harley Quinn After Birds Of Prey Flopped


According to Grace Randolph, there’s a solid chance we may never get to see another live-action Harley Quinn movie again. In a Tweet, the popular YouTuber and veteran leaker reported that sources close to her have said that there are no talks going on at Warner Bros. for future films revolving around the Clown Princess of Crime.

When actress Margot Robbie was cast as the character for 2016’s Suicide Squad, reactions were positive. Although the film itself received poor ratings across the board, critics agreed that Robbie’s energetic performance was one of the few indisputable highlights, and a favorable alternative to Jared Leto’s highly divisive Joker at that.

When, following the release of Suicide Squad, it was announced that the actress would reprise her role in Birds of Prey, Quinn appeared to have solidified her position as the queen of the DCEU. Unfortunately, however, her reign was not to last. Failing to cash in on its all-female cast and empowering message, Birds of Prey bombed at the box office. This, combined with renewed interest in the Joker due to the explosive success of Todd Phillips’ smash-hit film, all but shoved Quinn out of the limelight.

For now, the character remains scheduled to appear in next year’s sequel to Suicide Squad.  Directed by Guardians of the Galaxy‘s James Gunn, as opposed to the original’s David Ayer, it’ll see Robbie alongside Viola Davis, Jai Courtney, Joel Kinnaman and a few others from the first film, while also featuring some new comic book characters like Polka-Dot Man and King Shark. However, after that, it’s unclear where or when we’ll see Harley Quinn next.
