If Harley Quinn is ultimately recast in the new DC Universe, who could end up playing her?
Margot Robbie’s portrayal of Harley Quinn has been a fan favorite ever since her live-action debut in 2016’s Suicide Squad. Robbie brought the iconic comic book character to life in a way that exceeded expectations, making her a staple in the DC Extended Universe. Her performance as Harley Quinn in Birds of Prey was critically acclaimed and it was amazing to see the character evolve and grow in that film. And the momentum continued in another critically acclaimed film, The Suicide Squad.
However, recent rumors claim Robbie was offered the role of Sue Storm. The rumor has fans scratching their heads, wondering if Robbie accepted the role in the upcoming Fantastic Four film, what would it mean for Harley Quinn?
Harley Quinn’s impact on the DC Universe cannot be understated. She has become one of the most beloved and recognizable characters in the franchise. Her unique personality, style, and abilities make her a fan favorite. Her inclusion in movies like Suicide Squad, Birds of Prey, and The Suicide Squad have helped to bring the DC Universe to life on the big screen.
It’s all rumors and fans know how much Robbie loves Harley. She was her baby. Still, even if Margot Robbie doesn’t return to the role, there are ways for James Gunn and Peter Safran to continue using Harley Quinn as a staple in the DC Universe. There’s no doubt that audiences are invested in seeing Harley Quinn on screen, regardless of who is playing her. With the right script and direction, the character can continue to thrive in future DC movies.
But if the DCU does go in a different direction, who could play Harley Quinn?
