Australian actress Margot Robbie has revealed she would love to have Harley Quinn’s queerness explored in further movies.

Robbie will reprise her Suicide Squad role and her baseball bat in Birds of Prey. This will be the first DC movie focusing on her character. Harley Quinn will team up with other three female superheroes.

The movie, released in February 2020, has a powerful nearly all-female team behind it. Produced by Robbie, the film also stars Mary Elizabeth Winstead and Jurnee Smollett-Bell, while Cathy Yan will direct the script by Christina Hodson.

In a Q&A with, Robbie pointed out she would like to share some screen time with Poison Ivy in the future.

Last August, DC confirmed that Harley Quinn and Poison Ivy tied the knot in the Injustice video games. Moreover, the two shared a passionate kiss on the cover of comic book Harley Quinn in 2015.

‘If you read the comics you know that Poison Ivy and Harley have an intimate relationship. In some comics they convey it as a friendship, in other comics you can see that they’re actually sexually involved as a couple,’ Robbie said.

‘I’ve been trying to – I would love to have Poison Ivy thrown into the universe, because the Harley and Poison Ivy relationship is one of my favorite aspects of the comics, so I’m looking to explore that on screen.’

When asked who she would want as the redheaded supervillain, she said she is not sure.

‘You know what? I’ve thought about it a lot and there’s no one person who springs to mind. I’m pretty open-minded.’

Before being Harley Quinn again, the I, Tonya protagonist will wear Elizabeth I’s crown in period drama Mary Queen of Scots, in theaters from 7 December.
