The Amsterdam actress brought charm and charisma to the character while adding new additions to the character; she remained faithful to the source material.

James Gunn Answers Margot Robbie’s Future in The DCU

A couple of months back James Gunn confirmed that The Flash will completely reset the DCU, which will pave way for Gunn’s Chapter 1: Gods and Monsters. And he himself confirmed that the movie will “reset many things, not all things. Some characters remain the same some do not.”

As a result, fans saw the exit of Ben Affleck and Henry Cavill from their respective roles of Batman and Superman. While the future of the Barbie actress was unsure at the new DCU, a fan asked Gunn, if he would like to work with the actress again. To which the Peacemaker creator answered “for sure,” which indicated to the fans that Margot Robbie will return as Harley Quinn in the rebooted franchise.

Recently, a trustworthy scooper stated, that a prequel series revolving around Harley Quinn will be made and the title will be Harleen. The scoop claimed that plot will show how the need to save the Joker led to her mind being shattered. And fans ardently believed that Margot Robbie will be featured in her iconic role. But James Gunn stated that the scoop is untrue, and “there is not” any series featuring her return. But he did say, “yes” when asked about the return of the character in his rebooted DCU.
