Thanks to James Gunn, who directed her in The Suicide Squad, Margot Robbie now has more creative control at DC Studios. She’s been given more freedom in her DC projects due to her successful collaboration with Gunn, especially in her portrayal of Harley Quinn, which has been a standout in the Warner Bros. Discovery’s franchise.
Margot Robbie, known for playing Harley Quinn, is taking on a more significant role in the behind-the-scenes aspects of DC Studios. As co-chair and co-CEO, along with Peter Safran, they will oversee upcoming DC films. Robbie’s production company, LuckyChap Entertainment, has been increasingly involved in various projects, aligning with her expanding influence at Warner Bros. Discovery.
Excitingly, new Harley Quinn projects are in the works, with Margot Robbie expressing her desire to have Gugu Mbatha-Raw, known for Black Mirror and Loki, play Poison Ivy in the DC Universe. Harley Quinn and Poison Ivy have a history of teaming up in various capacities in DC ventures, and the animated series Harley Quinn on HBO Max has a dedicated fanbase.
The possibility of future DC films featuring Harley Quinn and Poison Ivy, such as a Birds of Prey sequel and a potential Gotham Sirens project, seems more likely. DC and James Gunn are supportive of Margot Robbie’s creative direction, acknowledging her consistent positive impact on the modern DC Universe.
