The relationship between the Joker and Harley Quinn has changed over the past 25 years, becoming something dark, co-dependent and abusive in comics before Harley set out to become her own person. But with the release last year of Suicide Squad, the Joker-Harley dynamic was back to square one, to the chagrin of many fans. However, if you're among those hoping that Dr. Quinzel will leave the Joker for a brighter future, actress Margot Robbie shares the sentiment.
Although admitting that she enjoys a good love story, Robbie told Bang Showbiz at the premiere of Goodbye Christopher Robin that their romance has to end -- and in spectacular fashion.
"Oh, their love story has to end in flames," she said. "It has to. It just wouldn't be right."
There will be plenty of opportunities to that to play out on screen, as Robbie and her Suicide Squad co-star Jared Leto are expected to reprise their roles in the sequel and two planned spinoffs, a Joker and Harley Quinn movie and Gotham City Sirens, which will also feature DC Comics antiheroines Catwoman and Poison Ivy.
