Just today, we've been given the great news of getting a movie circled around Harley Quinn (Margot Robbie). Her role in Suicide Squad was stated to be a crucial one, from the actress herself. Now, that WB has green-lit her solo endeavors, we'll get the chance to dive further into her background. And here's who could pop up.
Poison Ivy & Catwoman
Before the relaunch into the New 52, Ivy, Catwoman and Harley were already connected inwardly with crime. The three lived together. This series brought the three into contact with Hush; a Batman villain. Bringing Hush in could lead into a future story/film of the character manipulating Catwoman, Joker and even Quinn, herself, into taking aim against the Dark Knight. In further detail, we could possibly get that Hush-story many fans have been wanting since the Batman solo film announcement.
Birds of Prey
This solo could also be the cause of Birds of Prey forming; Catwoman, Barbra Gordon (Batgirl), Hawkgirl, Black Canary and Quinn, to name a few. We've already been given Barbra Gordon, who will be introduced in the Extended Cut of 'Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.' If the character's already in a wheelchair, due to Joker's beating, then part of the Birds of Prey story has already been told. There has been talk of Emma Watson being up for Hawkgirl and the appearance of Black Canary taking place in 'Justice League Part - 1' but further information hasn't been given for either. Yet, if this solo brings us Catwoman and Ivy, things would be setting off in the correct formation.
Let us not forget about Black Canary in the television series, Arrow.
She was killed by Darhk.
We know they've stopped Deadshot and Harley Quinn from appearing in the show also, right before their big screen appearances were announced in 'Suicide Squad.' While all this could even out, in the New 52, Quinn was told Joker was dead. In the "Death of the Family" storyline, he returned. Now, in the story he had killed Jason Todd, the Robin suit Bruce was looking up at in Dawn of Justice. In this comic, he had Quinn disguised as the Redhood, which led to Batman trailing after and capturing her. So, could we be getting this story later? Or is it already presented in 'Suicide Squad'?
If this movie does pan out, we could possibly see it on either the October 5, 2018 date or on November 1, 2019. One of the two that Warner Bros has reserved for DC movies. Catch Harley and Joker in 'Suicide Squad' August 5th
