It was recently announced that Margot Robbie will reprise the role of Harley Quinn in Suicide Squad director David Ayer’s Gotham City Sirens. Very little is known about the movie at this stage, but it’s thought that it’ll team the fan-favourite villain up with Batman antagonists like Catwoman and Poison Ivy.
While there are other DC Comics adaptations fans would like to see Warner Bros. prioritize (where’s that Man of Steel sequel?), it’s still a cool concept, and this newly released behind the scenes image from Suicide Squad may very well help get you even more excited for it.
Taken by DCEU photographer Clay Enos, the photo below was shot on the final day of filming. Of course, it’s worth pointing out that Suicide Squad underwent extensive reshoots, so chances are this wasn’t the last time Robbie suited up as The Joker’s Puddin’. Regardless, it’s a pretty stunning shot of the gorgeous Australian actress.
Despite the negative reviews and a tepid response from fans, Suicide Squad was a box office hit. Despite that, it’s still surprising that the studio is moving forward with a Harley Quinn centric spinoff before a sequel revolving around Task Force X, but it probably makes sense to focus on a character they know works before going back to the drawing board with the villainous team as a whole.
With Ayer at the helm though, it’s too soon to say whether or not Gotham City Sirens will work, but here’s hoping we get more photos like this one from Suicide Squad to tide us over until we hear more about it.
