Harley Quinn Solo Film Starring Margot Robbie Is In Development

Suicide Squad Harley Quinn
In a clear effort to gain even more ground lost to Marvel’s superhero movie goldmine, Warner Bros. is looking to expand its DC Extended Universe with a Harley Quinn spin-off film starring Margot Robbie.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Robbie will not only reprise her iconic role from Suicide Squad, but produce as well. The outlet also indicated that the upcoming film wont focus solely on Harley Quinn. Instead, the movie will reportedly focus on several other female DC characters as well, with Batgirl and Birds of Prey being considered.
While details are being kept tightly under wraps and Warner Bros. has yet to comment, a female writer is said to be penning the script.
The Hollywood Reporter also reported that “Robbie was the impetus for the project,” having fallen in love with DC’s roster of female characters after doing a considerable amount of research in reading the comics to learn about her character. Robbie then brought a writer on board to help flesh out the project and pitched it to Warner Bros.
Robbie will make her big screen debut as Harley Quinn when Suicide Squad opens in theaters on August 5.

Before I became a Geek Under Grace I was a student of Journalism and have always aspired to write for a gaming and geek culture publication. I am truly blessed to have found an outlet to reach not only thousands of fans, but those who may not have yet found Christ. My favorite genre of games is third-person/sandbox games. I like the freedom that they allow both in gameplay and in scale and they just seem less bland and limited than more linear titles. I still have a soft spot for RPG games but I now enjoy JRPGs far less than I did as a child because they are still basically the exact same as they always were, with a few exceptions of course. I also enjoy playing more tactical third-person multiplayer shooters or first-person shooters that try to shake things up. I absolutely hate games based on WWII or Vietnam as those settings and those types of gameplay have been done to death. Though I am not opposed to a future Assassin's Creed title being set during one of these wars. I also typically tend to stay away from MOBA's as they are notorious for abusive, and generally unsavory online communities. My favorite game of all time is Chrono Trigger, which ironically enough is a JRPG but its one that I consider untouchable in quality. The runner-up for my favorite game of all time would be Star Fox 64.
