Margot Robbie, who’ll play Harley Quinn in the film inspired by DC Comics‘ villain-populated government task force, has confirmed what many have speculated since she was first announced as taking on the role — she’s signed on for a multi-picture deal.
Though the actual number of films Robbie is contracted for remains unknown, she recently revealed that she’s signed on for a ten year stretch as the Joker’s sometimes-significant other, and she couldn’t be happier about it.
“You don’t need to have commitment issues to be frightened by the fact that you might have just signed 10 years of your life away,” Robbie told AZCentral. “But with her, it’s a character I don’t think would ever get boring. Ever. So if they did ‘Suicide Squad One,’ ‘Two’ and ‘Three,’ I would be over the moon about it.”
Opening Aug. 5, 2016, Warner Bros.’ “Suicide Squad” also stars Will Smith as Deadshot, Jared Leto as the Joker, Cara Delevingne as Enchantress and Jai Courtney as Boomerang, with Joel Kinnaman reportedly in negotiations to play Rick Flag. Viola Davis is also expected to appear as Amanda Waller.
