Margot Robbie Says That She Needs A Break From Playing Harley Quinn

Margot Robbie doesn't know when she'll be playing Harley Quinn again and said that she needs a break from the character.

One of Margot Robbie's most well-known characters is the infamous Harley Quinn. She has been playing the character ever since she debuted in the DCEU in David Ayer's Suicide Squad in 2016.

Robbie has starred in two movies as Harley Quinn with the third one being The Suicide Squad on the way. It's almost back to back to back that she's been Harley Quinn and the Australian actress says that she needs a break.

After the first Suicide Squad film, she starred in the 2020 spinoff Birds of Prey then went straight into the filming of the second suicide squad movie.

In a recent interview with Entertainment Weekly, she spoke about the chances of seeing her again as Harley Quinn after The Suicide Squad.

It was kind of back-to-back filming Birds [of Prey]... and filming [The Suicide Squad], so I was kind of like, oof, I need a break from Harley because she's exhausting. I don't know when we're next going to see her. I'm just as intrigued as everyone else is.

At the moment, there are no official plans by WB to bring Harley Quinn back. It's actually quite possible that she has already been killed off. In Zack Snyder's Justice League, Ben Affleck's Batman revealed that Harley Quinn died in his arms.

Margot Robbie As Harley Quinn

With this, it seems impossible for Harley Quinn to continue on the future DCEU films but Margot Robbie isn't too sure about that. She addressed the concerns in the interview saying:

I didn't know that, but it doesn't necessarily change what other people are able to do with this universe, I don't think. What one director decides I don't think dictates what another director might be able to pick up and do with the world and the characters, which is fun. I think that's an appealing aspect for directors in the DC world, they can make it their own, the way James [Gunn] did [with The Suicide Squad].

Margot Robbie will return for possibly the last time as Harley Quinn in The Suicide Squad set to hit theaters and HBO Max on August 6th.
