Suicide Squad has been heavily criticised but Margot Robbie’s Harley Quinn has received such a positive response from the critics and the audience that she now wants a spin off movie for her character.
Margot’s portrayal of the character and the chemistry with Jared Leto’s Joker has apparently been labelled the best thing about Suicide Squad.
Whilst being interviewed by YouTuber Hazel Hayes, she sat back, relaxed with a mimosa and spoke about her love for Harley.
Like Jared Leto, she also claimed that a lot of scenes between her and the Joker were cut from the final edit of the film.
So, now she wants to see a spin-off focused entirely on the couple’s destructive relationship with each other.
The Australian actress claimed that there is so much more to the pair’s backstory and when asked about an actual possibility of another film, she told Hazel:
“I’m trying to make that happen!”
“There’s just so much to do. [The Joker] refuses to acknowledge that he even has emotions so he turns it into this toxic negative thing. There’s so much to it.”
“There was so much of our backstory [but] they probably realised that the emotional through-line of the story had to be the mission we were on.”
Jared himself has said recently that a lot of his flashback scenes were edited out as the producers did not want them to clash with the film’s core storyline.
But this has apparently led to the Joker having less screen time than originally expected.
Although the film has been heavily criticised and received bad reviews, Suicide Squad has blown up at the box office and set a record, bringing in $135million in ticket sales.
Wow! That is one hell of an opening.
Hollywood Reporter has also reportedly said that they are thinking of making a spin-off movie but they wouldn’t just focus on Harley.
They would also focus on other female villains and heroes such as Batgirl.
So perhaps a Harley Quinn spin-off may not be impossible after all…
