While the DC Extended Universe has had a bit of a rocky start with their first handful of films, there has been some good that came out of it. Suicide Squad was a royal mess, but if there was a silver lining, it came in the form of the many characters, including Harley Quinn, portrayed perfectly by actress Margot Robbie.
Of course, a sequel to Suicide Squad is on its way, courtesy of Guardians of the Galaxy helmer James Gunn, but before that, audiences will get to see more of Harley in the ridiculously-titled Birds of Prey (and the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn), but that’s not to say she can’t pop up in yet another franchise. More specifically, there was news of a potential Gotham City Sirens film before Birds of Prey even came into the mix.
While we don’t know if the movie will actually happen, it sounds like there’s one character Robbie hopes starts interacting with Harley Quinn in the near future, as she revealed to Pride Source:
“If you read the comics you know that Poison Ivy and Harley have an intimate relationship. In some comics they convey it as a friendship; in other comics you can see that they’re actually sexually involved as a couple. I’ve been trying to – I would love to have Poison Ivy thrown into the universe, because the Harley and Poison Ivy relationship is one of my favorite aspects of the comics, so I’m looking to explore that on screen.”
But which version of the relationship will audiences be getting in the films? Well, I doubt even DC knows at this point, but it’ll be interesting to see what they end up doing. Over on the CW, they’ve managed to go all-in on a lot of LGBTQ characters on the regular, so doing the same for a film shouldn’t be a big deal. Then again, with more money comes more risk, and they may still be risk-averse enough not to want to take the chance.
Then again, with Birds of Prey tackling Harley Quinn’s emancipation from Joker, seeing the seeds of this relationship may not be out of the question, right?
