There Are 4 Live-Action Harley Quinn Movie Projects Under Development Right Now, Find Details

There are some Harley Quinn movies developing right now.

After an interview Margot Robbie gave to MTV, she said she’s been working on a separate stand-alone Harley Quinn movie. When asked if that referred to earlier announced projects like Gotham City Sirens or the stand-alone Joker and Harley Quinn romance movie, Robbie affirmed it wasn’t.

“I’ve been working on a separate spinoff of Harley for a while now,” Robbie said. “It’s a totally separate one. There’s a lot going on right now, and I’m not sure … I honestly don’t think anyone knows what’s going to be the next thing to happen, but I think everyone’s keen to get Harley back on screen.”

This means we have at least four confirmed movies featuring Harley Quinn: Suicide Squad 2, Gotham City Sirens, a stand-alone Joker and Harley “romantic comedy” and, finally, this mysterious new stand-alone Harley movie.

Here’s a guide to each Harley Quinn movie we know about.


Gotham City Sirens was one of the DCU movies announced by Warner Bros. in December 2016. The main focus would be on three of DC’s female super villains— Catwoman, Poison Ivy and Harley Quinn. Margot Robbie is so far the only actress who has signed on, and  JaredLeto is rumored to play the Joker again. David Ayer who is the director said that this would be a movie primarily about the three female villains and not their romantic counterparts or other popular male superheroes.

“It’s a story about three fantastic women who are trying to find their way in the world, and realize that they have more power together than they do individually,” Ayer told IGN. “I have daughters, and I want to create something that might be able to help them get along in the world a little bit.”

Gotham City Sirens doesn’t have a release date yet.


Robbie will reprise her role as Harley Quinn in Suicide Squad 2 and will star alongside her former cast members.  Leto will reprise his role as the Joker and Will Smith as Deadshot.

Gavin O’Connor is directing the movie and is best known for his directorial work on The Accountant, Warrior and Pride and Glory, Suicide Squad 2 will be released in 2019.


Glenn Ficarra and John Requa, will direct the Joker and Harley Quinn’s movie and are making it a romantic comedy.

The film will be a “criminal love story,” which was akin to “an insane and twisted love story. When Harry Met Sally on benzedrine.” The movie is planned to be released after Suicide Squad 2, making it a 2020 release. Robbie and Leto will reportedly reprise their roles for the movie.

The upcoming Harley/Joker romantic comedy, which doesn’t have a title or synopsis yet, will belong to the same universe as other DCEU movies, including Wonder Woman, Justice League and Suicide Squad 2. Which means, the events that occur in the Harley/Joker movie will be canonical.


Which brings us to the new, stand-alone Harley Quinn film. As Robbie stated in the interview, details on the movie are still very vague, and the actress can’t reveal anything more about it at this time.

We can assume the movie will be released after the other three, but it’s difficult to gauge without any more specific details.
