Margot Robbie Will Reportedly Play Harley Quinn In “Suicide Squad”

Genetically blessed Ramsay Street escapee and rumoured Leonardo DiCaprio paramour for one hot minute, Margot Robbie, has reportedly been cast as Harley Quinn in the forthcoming DC villains franchise, Suicide Squad.

The squad – a nefarious assemblage of DC super-villains billed as the anti-Avengers – is also rumoured to include Will Smith, Tom Hardy (potentially taking his second trip aboard the DC villain train), Jesse Eisenberg, reprising his role as Lex Luther, and Jared Leto as The Joker. 

Per Collider: “We have now learned from sources that Robbie will play Harley Quinn. For those who don’t know the character, she was introduced in Batman: The Animated Series as the Joker’s girlfriend/henchwoman, and has gone on to become a popular rogue/anti-hero in her own right.” 

If the reports are to be believed, this would be Quinn’s first appearance on the big screen, a welcome addition mainly for the fact that more people need to be aware of her as a cosplay option.  

Suicide Squad is slated for release in 2016.
