Margot Robbie to play Harley Quinn?

Reports are flooding in that Margot Robbie has signed to play Harley Quinn in the upcoming Suicide Squad movie.

Rumours also circulate regarding  Will Smith and Tom Hardy’s involvement in the movie as well as Jared Leto as The Joker.

Harley Quinn (Dr. Harleen Frances Quinzel) was introduced on September 11, 1992, in Batman: The Animated Series and later adapted into DC Comics’ Batman comic books, first appearing in The Batman Adventures #12 (September 1993).

As suggested by her name (a play on the word “harlequin”), she is clad in the manner of a traditional harlequin jester. The character is a frequent accomplice and girlfriend of Batman’s nemesis the Joker, and is also close to the supervillain Poison Ivy, from whom she gained her immunity to poisons and toxins.

The character was created by Paul Dini and Bruce Timm and was originally voiced by Arleen Sorkin in Batman: The Animated Series and its tie-ins. The character was voiced by Hynden Walch in The Batman animated series and the 2014 film Batman: Assault on Arkham.

This will not be the first live portrayal of Harley Quinn though, in the Birds of Prey television series, she was portrayed by actress Mia Sara (and Sherilyn Fenn in an unaired version of the pilot episode). Throughout her animated depictions, she is shown to speak with a pronounced Brooklyn accent.
