Never fear, Suicide Squad fans. A few days ago, Forbes hinted that everyone’s favorite super villain, Harley Quinn would not be making an appearance in James Gunn’s The Suicide Squad. However, the publication has since updated the story. Now, it alleges “sources close to production” have confirmed Harley Quinn’s involvement.
Additionally, The Suicide Squad is slated to begin production later this year.
Despite the alleged confirmation, there is no official confirmation from the production team themselves according to CinemaBlend.
As previously reported, the second installment instead may be more of a relaunch as opposed to a sequel.
The second Suicide Squad film will be Gunn’s first directorial position since his firing from Disney. Gunn was removed from the production company after a series of controversial tweets he made back in 2008 and 2009. His removal meant that he wouldn’t direct the upcoming Vol. 3 Guardians Of The Galaxy movie.
The Suicide Squad is expected to be released in the summer of 2021.
In addition to The Suicide Squad, Margot Robbie is working on Birds Of Prey, which is Harley Quinn’s own spinoff film.
What we know about Birds Of Prey (And The Fantabulous Emancipation Of One Harley Quinn) so far
Back in April, we learned Cathy Yan signed on to direct. Robbie’s own LuckyChap will be producing the flick, with Sue Kroll of Kroll & Co Entertainment and Bryan Unkeless of Clubhouse Pictures.
Earlier this week, Margot Robbie dropped the film’s first teaser showing us Quinn in all her glory. The actress took to Instagram yet again to share a selfie with the caption, “Miss me? HQ.”
She’s sporting an outfit that’s a far cry from her famous “Daddy’s Lil Monster” tee and Puddin’ choker. Robbie rocks a colorful jacket, hot pink suspenders and a dog collar that reads “Bruce,” which one can only assume is referring to Batman himself.
Soon after, a Birds Of Prey teaser hit the web. The video offers up a better look at the cast, which includes Quinn (Robbie), Huntress (Mary Elizabeth Winstead), Black Canary (Jurnee Smollett-Bell), Cassandra Cain (Ella Jay Basco), Black Mask (Ewan McGregor), Victor Zsasz (Chris Messina) and Gotham City police detective Renee Montoya (Rosie Perez).
Birds Of Prey (And The Fantabulous Emancipation Of One Harley Quinn) hits theaters Feb. 7, 2020.
