Suicide Squad may not be a very good film but we can admit that Margot Robbie’s portrayal as Harley Quinn was the highlight in that god-awful monstrosity. There’s gonna be more of Harley Quinn in the DCEU and we can expect to see her in the upcoming Birds of Prey film which is looking to be something pretty interesting. The film has Robbie back along with a solid cast which features the likes of Mary Elizabeth Winstead as Huntress and Jurnee Smollett-Bell as Black Canary.
With Birds of Prey on the horizon, it’s going to be some time before we see a Suicide Squad 2 and a Gotham City Sirens film. There’s plenty of ways that Warner Bros. can go with the DCEU particularly with the character of Harley Quinn and it looks like Margot Robbie also has some ideas pertaining to the character of Poison Ivy.
We’re likely not going to see an encounter between Harley Quinn and Poison Ivy in Birds of Prey but based off their relationship in the comics, we sure hope we’ll be able to see that happen soon. Robbie also expressed great interest in that during an interview with Pride Source, revealing that she’s been trying to make that happen. When asked on whether she was aware of Harley’s sexuality in the comics, particularly the romantic relationship between Harley and Poison Ivy, Robbie expressed interest in exploring this relationship in future films. She said:
“Yeah. If you read the comics you know that Poison Ivy and Harley have an intimate relationship. In some comics they convey it as a friendship; in other comics you can see that they’re actually sexually involved as a couple. I’ve been trying to – I would love to have Poison Ivy thrown into the universe, because the Harley and Poison Ivy relationship is one of my favorite aspects of the comics, so I’m looking to explore that on screen.”
The relationship between Harley Quinn and Poison Ivy would be a great thing to explore and would really allow the DCEU to stand out a little bit more. The DCEU does look like it’s getting their s–t together since Aquaman is garnering some early positive reception. We can expect Birds of Prey to be something special as well with its R-rating but it’s still too early to tell so we’ll see.
