Margot Robbie returns as Harley Quinn in James Gunn’s DCU; Is it true?

Insiders claim Margot Robbie will return as Harley Quinn

The possibility of Margot Robbie once again playing Harley Quinn in the DC Universe might be uncertain, but it isn’t zero. The James Gunn and Peter Safran’s management is still finding its footing, making fans unsure if their favorite characters will return to the universe. They are primarily concerned if the actors who made the characters immortal will return. However, according to recent hints, one of the fan-favorite appears to be safe.

Will Margot Robbie return to DCU as Harley Quinn?

Harley Quinn is debatably one of the favorite characters of DC Universe fans. Before Lady Gaga reimagined the role in Joker 2Margot Robbie gave life to it in David Ayer’s 2016 film Suicide Squad. She later returned to play the character in 2020’s Birds of Prey. 

  • Fans who adored Robbie playing the anti-hero and chaotic character were shocked when the first announcement came that Lady Gaga would reprise the role in the Joker sequel. They also considered it a sign that they may never see the Barbie actress return to DCU as Harley Quinn again.
  • Hold your hearts, as according to MyTimeToShineH, an industry scooper, Robbie will return to DCEU as Harley Quinn. Later, Daniel RPK, a noted industry insider, also confirmed the leak. He shared it on X (formerly known as Twitter) with a straightforward Tweet. “I can give assurance that Margot Robbie will return as Harley Quinn in DCEU,” the tweet claimed with couple more related hashtags.

  • Apart from these tweets, there aren’t any official confirmations, but as Daniel RPK is a well-known source for leaking exciting news before its official announcements, one can’t just ignore it as baseless rumors.

More hints supporting the news

Apart from the claims of industry insiders, there was one minor hint from the makers recently. A few months back, James Gunn called out a claim about Margot Robbie’s future in the DCEU. The post by DC Leaks made various claims, including that Robbie will never return to DCU, which Gunn passionately refuted. This can suffice as a hint because the director is known for refuting false information about his future projects.

  • Additionally, if the newest rumors and claims are false, then there are chances of Gunn refuting them shortly. Considering that Gunn worked with Robbie in 2021’s The Suicide Squad and the positive response to the MAX series Harley Quinn, the aspects of the 33-year-old actress’s return seem bright and promising.

Fans react

The fans are eager to see Margot Robbie return as Harley Quinn although it isn’t confirmed what role the character will play. As Quinn is a fluid role that can easily be placed in a significant position to add depth to the script further, there is a lot that she can do.
