Harley Quinn is a major DC character that hasn't been done properly on the big screen and with the release of the new Batman V Superman coming out in 2016 it would be no surprise if we saw Harley Quinn added to the roster of characters in this superhero epic.
There's also the likelihood of Harley Quinn coming to DC's new TV show called Gotham. She will more than likely feature in that TV show, but most likely as a very young girl..
Anyway, here's my top 5 choices for the actress cast as Harley Quinn.
5. Dakota Fanning
Dakota Fanning is an Irish/American actress who is a young talent that has been around for years. She really showcased her acting at an early stage in War of The Worlds with Tom Cruise. I think she has the sultry persona needed to be the compelling Harley Quinn. She definitely has the right looks to portray the character and I think a role like this would suspend her to super-stardom.
4. Taylor Schilling
This Orange is the New Black star is an actress who you would often forget to include in fan-casts as she is a TV show actress, but she is a great one at that. She is incredibly creepy, cool and sultry at the same time, I think she has the perfect traits to be The Jokers other half, Harley. If you're a fan of the show you'll recognize her crazy intense look she gives people when she's angry... yikes!
3. Anna Sophia Robb
This is one actress that I think will be a huge star in the next 2/3 years or so. She has featured in some kids films as a young actress (Bridge to Terabithia, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory), but it wasn't until I saw The Way Way Back that I realized her acting capabilities! She has the perfect look for Harley Quinn and I know she's not exactly an unknown, but it could be a good choice for the TV version of Harley Quinn *cough* Gotham *cough*.
2. Kate Mara
Before getting into the option of Kate Mara as Harley Quinn, I just have to say I know that it's near impossible because she's playing the Invisible Woman in the upcoming Fantastic 4 reboot. But in hindsight, she would be a excellent Harley Quinn. She is an actress that would commit deeply to a role and give it 100%, and I think she would pull of a great Harley Quinn. Pity it can't happen though..
1. Juno Temple
My absolute one and only choice for Harley Quinn, Juno Temple. A reasonably unknown actress at this stage, although she had a very minor role in The Dark Knight Rises. This actress is one of my favorites and anytime I watch a film of hers, I can't help but notice how perfect she'd be for Harley Quinn. For those who don't believe me, watch Afternoon Delight with Josh Radnor. You'll see how great she'd be. I won't settle for anybody else other that Ms. Juno Temple!
