Margot Robbie has made a special place in our hearts for her role as Harley Quinn in Cathy Yan’s Birds of Prey and James Gunn’s The Suicide Squad. But recently, the 31-year-old Australian actor announced that he wants to take a break from the character. In a recent interaction, the actor learned the fate of his character according to the timeline and had a reaction below.
For those who don’t mind, Quinn’s timeline and repetitions abound in the DC Universe, but Robbie’s character timeline is synchronized with Jared Leto’s Joker and Ben Affleck’s Batman. And (spoiler alert) in this DC movie timeline, Harley died in the arms of Batman. Surprised? See how that actor reacted when he heard it.
In a conversation with EW, Margot Robbie talked at length about Harley Quinn about her DC Universe character and wanted to take a break. The 31-year-old Australian actor said: “I was kind of saying I needed a break from Harley because it’s tiring. I don’t know when we’ll see him. I’m just as excited as everyone else.”
When the interview told her that in the DC movie timeline Harley Quinn died in Batman’s arms, Margot Robbie was shocked and said, “Whaaat?” The actor further said: “I didn’t know that. [Laughs] Thank you for telling me! “
The Australian actor continued: “I think it’s kind of like comics. The cinematic version of the DC universe, I think they’re like comics. You get a comic and something happens and then you get the next comic and maybe that character isn’t alive, maybe that character isn’t there is that person, maybe that character has a completely different look. Each film is its own, and I think that works in the world of comics, and I think that works in the world of DC cinema as well. “
Comparing Margot Robbie to another great comic, Margot Robbie said, “It’s not like Marvel, because everything is wisely connected in a more linear way. It seems like so many stories, worlds, and movies happen side by side at the same time, just like in comics. So yeah, I didn’t know that, but it doesn’t have to change what other people are capable of doing with this universe, I don’t think so. “
He added, “I don’t think what one director decides that another director can pick up and do with the world and the characters is fun. I think it’s an attractive aspect for DC world directors, they can do it themselves, just like James did. It didn’t have to be David Ayer. (Looking at the version he created (director of Suicide Squad).
Well, we’d love to continue playing Margot Robbie on Harley Quinn, right?
