The DC Cinematic Universe, let’s call it DCCU, is starting to shape up nicely. Following WB’s film slate announcement, the next film garnering much attention is David Ayer’s “Suicide Squad.”
This past week saw the announcement that Jared Leto is being courted as The Joker and just announced today is the news that Margot Robbie (The Wolf of Wall Street, upcoming films Tarzan and Focus) will play Harley Quinn! Robbie has been named to play the fan-favorite character, created by Bruce Timm and Paul Dini. Harley has already been portrayed by Cassidy Alexa (in a deleted scene at the end of Arrow’s second season), and of course Mia Sara had the role in the short-lived Birds of Prey tv show. But she has been most famously brought to life by Arleen Sorkin’s excellent voice acting in Batman: The Animated Series. What will Robbie bring to the role? Only time will tell!
David Ayer’s “Suicide Squad” is set for release in 2016; the same year as “Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice.”
