Margot Robbie / Harley Quinn

There it is. Following the news from the end of last week, our friends at Collider are reporting that actress Margot Robbie has been actually cast to play Harley Quinn in the Suicide Squad movie. Last week, a big casting story broke saying that Jared Leto was being considered for The Joker role in Suicide Squad, to be directed by David Ayer coming off of the critical success of Fury. There have been rumors Harley Quinn might be in this too, and casting reports have mentioned Margot for months already, but now it seems to be confirmed from Collider's source - she will be playing Harley Quinn and we'll probably get more Joker, too.

Very talented 24-year-old Australian actress Margot Robbie has been landing roles left and right ever since her co-starring role in Martin Scorsese's The Wolf of Wall Street, where she impressed everyone. Robbie has already filmed Z for Zachariah and Focus with Will Smith, both arriving in 2015, and she's about to start shooting Tarzan starring as Jane, the big Warner Bros production directed by David Yates. She also just took a role in The Mountain Between Us opposite Charlie Hunnam. She'll be an excellent Quinn and should bring some extra attention to this by playing Harley Quinn, one of the most beloved DC Comics characters. We may finally see Joker and Harley Quinn together on the big screen soon, as long as it all comes together.

David Ayer is directing the film about a team of imprisoned super-villains who perform high-risk missions for the U.S. Government in exchange for commuted sentences. The team's actions are highly classified, and the government is able to deny any involvement by claiming that they are not responsible for the damages of a random super-villain attack. The catch: their mission will probably kill them all. Ayer has described the film as The Dirty Dozen with super villains, and that sounds fun as hell. Release is initially set for August 2016. The cast is said to include Tom Hardy, Jesse Eisenberg and Will Smith. Is Robbie the best choice?

    It can't be easy to get Harley's intensity right without making her too cartoonish (or at least believably cartoonish). But this seems like a great casting choice. I can imagine this.

    Sinister Six will still be cooler.

    I'm happy Margot is entering the comic realm of movies...I'm just sad she's not going to play Ms. Marvel (Capt Marvel) for Marvel. I think she would've shined better in that role as she definitely nails the looks. Plus that movie would be solely about her, whereas in suicide squad she'll be sharing screen time with the rest of the squad (not to mention if DC hires other big or bigger named actors).

      No...........no not really.

  • guest1
    good choice, let's see if she can pull off Harley's crazy style though..
  • DashSatan
    I'm all for Margot Robbie to play Harley!!! Although, I was pulling for Brittany Snow.
  • IamSlave
    Her and Leto as The Joker and Quinn. I like what I'm hearing. This could turn out to be very cool. Specially with Ayer beyond the camera.
  • Brian Sleider
    Well now thats a cock stiffener.
  • avconsumer2
    Well... she did not fall out of the top of the ugly tree.
  • Bill
    ...but does she have that voice?
  • matthew south
    I wander what iteration of Waller they are gonna use, cuz Pam Grier would be awesome!
  • Dbamma
    Anna Faris would be a better Harley. CCPounder does the voice for Waller in the cartoons, it would be great for her to do it in the movies.
  • Yes...Oh yeah...Yes...Uh-huh...Oh baby...Yeaaaah...Right there...Ohhhhh yeaaaaaaahhhhhhhh!!!!!! Whew! Wow! Um, yeah. I think this is good news.
  • Randall Miller
    With Alex's list of Margot's films in 2015 and beyond, the buzz for SS with her and hopefully Mr. Leto could reach a fever pitch.....and liken it to what happened with GOTG in regards to box office receipts of a lesser know property. DC could have a huge hit on their hands.
