James Gunn and Peter Safran have been named co-chairs and co-CEOs of DC Studios, a new entity formed to replace DC Films, which is in financial trouble. Margot Robbie gave her opinion about Gunn's new role in an interview with ComicBook.
"I know it's crazy," Robbie said about DC's big changes. "And Peter Safran, so he was also the producer on The Suicide Squad, so I know them both really well and they're a dynamic duo. I think that's such a get for DC."
Playing Harley Quinn again ?
"No, I've had enough of a break.
I'm ready to do her again," Robbie recently explained.. "I did Birds of Prey and The Suicide Squad back-to-back, so that was a lot of Harley all in a one-year period, but that was a while ago now. I'm always ready for more Harley!"
Harley Quinn and Poison Ivy Romance
"I have been pushing for that for years.
I cannot tell you how hard I've been pushing for that. I want it too," Robbie said of a live-action romance between Harley and Ivy. When asked if she had any actors in mind to play her romantic opposite, she added, "Honestly, when I pictured, I always picture like Poison Ivy in the comics.
I don't really actually picture an actress doing it, but I agree, that would be so good."
Margot Robbie on Lady Gaga as Harley Quinn
"It makes me so happy because I said from the very beginning that all I want is for Harley Quinn to be one of those characters, the way Macbeth or Batman, always gets passed from great actor to great actor," Robbie explained.
"It's kind of like someone gets to do their Batman, or someone gets to do their Macbeth. I feel like, in not so many cases, are they female characters — Queen Elizabeth I, but beyond that, which I got to have a crack out as well, which I was honored to do.
I was like, 'Wow! Cate Blanchett did Queen Elizabeth I. Now I get to.' It's such an honor to have built a foundation strong enough that Harley can now be one of those characters that other actors get to have a go at playing. And I think she'll do something incredible with it."
