Margot Robbie’s portrayal of the character was, in fact, the clear stand out from the whole film. Besides Will Smith’s DEADSHOT. So it comes at no surprise that they would go for a solo Harley film.
However! Its a little hard to believe, in my opnion, that it will only be a Harley Film. I wouldnt be at all surprised that in the coming weeks or months, as WB continues to work on the project, It’ll be announced that it will actually be a Gotham City Sirens movie.
Allow me to elaborate.. Its most likely safe to assume that WB/DC would want to use more recent comic book source material in order to construct the story. The most recent work, is The New 52 run of Harley Quinn. Written and illustrated by Amanda Connor and Jimmy Palmiiotti.
Which, taking under consideration WB’s current movie track record, would be a bad idea!
The New 52 run of Harley Quinn, essentially made her DC’s version of Deadpool! She knew she was a comic book character. She broke the 4th wall. She converses with a stuffed half robot beaver. She was ultra violent and funny. They made her a Female Deadpool.
If they were to follow this route.. It would be a bad choice in WB’s part. Fans would acuse them of ripping off the deadpool movie.
Granted, Suicide Squad presented a very slightly different version of Harley. But the potential of a Deadpool esq veesion of her is there.
The Best and most possible choice for a Harley Spin Off movie would be the creation of The Gotham City Sirens!
With Harley Quinn being the spine of the story arc. Perhaps her story would force her in to contact with Catwoman. Getting them arrested in the process and then meeting Poison Ivy later on in the film. And maybe The Joker could be the real main villain in this..
We could even see Batgirl be the pursing hero (maybe Batman)
We could also maybe see The Birds Of Prey make an apperance as well..
Perhaps they join together to fight Joker at the end!
It could be like an awesome ‘Thelma and Louise’ style story with kick ass action in it.
Cast the characters of Catwoman, Ivy, Batgirl and the other Birds of Prey properly, craft a great story and they could have a major hit on their hands.
Im looking forward to it nontheless. Weather its a Harley or a GCS movie, im excited and i want to see it!
What do you folks think? Let me know your thoughts..
So, until next time.. Peace Out!
