Margot Robbie is shocked by Harley Quinn’s fate in Zack Snyder’s Justice League, but points out that it doesn’t dictate the character’s future DCEU.
Margot Robbie, who plays Harley Quinn in the DC Extended Universe, had no idea that her character died in Zack Snyder’s Justice League.
Harley’s fate is revealed during the film’s epilogue, also known as the Knightmare sequence, in which Batman details how Harley died in his arms. Robbie, not having seen this scene ahead of time, was shocked to learn of this during an interview with Weekly entertainment. “I didn’t know that,” he admitted laughing. “Thank you for telling me!”
Robbie made her debut as the DCEU’s Harley Quinn in 2016 Suicide squad, before headlining the 2020 spinoff movie Birds of Prey (and the fabulous emancipation of a Harley Quinn). She will reprise the role one more time for James Gunn. Suicide squad, a continuation that is neither a traditional sequel nor a complete reboot of the previous film. Commenting on this, Robbie pointed out Harley’s fate at Snyder’s League of Justice The cut doesn’t necessarily dictate your future in the franchise.
“I guess it’s kind of like the comics,” Robbie said. “The movie version of the DC universe, I actually think they look a lot like the comics. You take a comic and something is happening and then the next comic and maybe that character is not alive, maybe that character is not with that person, maybe that character looks completely different. Every movie is its own kind of thing, and I think that works in the comic book world, and I think it works in the DC movie world as well. It’s not like Marvel where everything it’s more obviously linked in a more linear way. It feels like there are so many adjacent stories, worlds and movies happening at the same time, just like in the comics. “
He went on to point out that a director’s vision for the DCEU “doesn’t necessarily change what other people can do with this universe, I don’t think.” Instead, Robbie reasoned that DCEU movie directors have more freedom to come in and put their own spin on the universe, just like Gunn did with Suicide squad. “He didn’t have to be indebted to the version (Suicide Squad director) David Ayer created. He could take it and make it his own, which I’m sure was more appealing to him.”
