Margot Robbie’s Spinoff Guarantees Us Another Halloween of Harley Quinn Costumes

No one needed a Suicide Squad spinoff. But we’re getting a few. There’s the rumored Joker spinoff that may or may not involve Jared Leto. And now there’s a rumored Harley Quinn spinoff that definitely involves Margot Robbie.

Let me correct myself.

We’re not getting a Suicide Squad spinoff. We’re getting a Margot Robbie spinoff. No one actually cares about Harley Quinn or wants to see Warner Bros. ruin more iconic comic book characters. But damn if we don’t want to see Margot Robbie in pigtails and booty shorts for another three hours.

Robbie confirmed to MTV that she’s been working on the spinoff for two years. Considering there’s never been a mention of this spinoff, this movie is going to be the greatest movie ever or a gigantic flop that is overproduced. Given Warner Bros. history, I’d bet on the latter.

The Harley Quinn movie is separate from the Joker movie, which is separate from the Gotham City Sirens movie. Yeah, I’m sure Warner Bros. won’t bungle this all.

The biggest thing Robbie wants from this Harley Quinn movie is…MORE WOMEN! “She needs her girlfriends,” Robbie said in the interview. I concur. I don’t know who Harley Quinn’s girlfriends are, but I imagine they are just as crazy, dirty, and deceiving as Quinn. Sign me up.

While I’m not confident in Warner Bros. delivering a great product, I do admire their ability to milk Margot Robbie and Gal Gadot. There are four Harley Quinn movies on the schedule and at least two more Wonder Woman films.

Meanwhile, Marvel studios just keeps figuring out ways on how they can make Scarlett Johansson a background player instead of giving Black Widow her own film. Step your game up, Marvel. DC may have cast Ben Affleck as Batman, but at least they aren’t minimizing females.

On second thought. Casting Ben Affleck is worse.
