While some critics didn’t treat “Suicide Squad” too kindly, many agree that Margot Robbie’s Harley Quinn was one of the best parts of the film. Robbie think so too — to that extent that she’s actively pushing for a spinoff starring Harley and Jared Leto’s Joker.
In an interview on Tipsy Talk, Robbie discussed her love of the character, praising the unique position of Harley in “Suicide Squad.” “I feel like I hit the lottery…The chicks never get these roles — we never get the roles where we have the funny one-liners and then the kick-ass action scene, but then also, like, an intricate character with an awesome story arc — you just don’t really get that, like in a big-budget film.”
Robbie went on to praise Leto’s performance as the Clown Prince of Crime, touching on some of the scenes that were cut out of the film. “There was so much of our backstory…they probably realized that the emotional through-line of the story had to be the mission we were on, and kind of explaining The Enchantress’ position and all that kind of stuff, and the backstory stuff — though it’s like magic…there’s a lot but it just didn’t make sense to confuse the present storyline with that.”
As for a spinoff starring the maniacal couple? Robbie really wants one. “I’m trying to make that happen. Not for anything specifically, but just something — there’s so much more to do.”
