Some like James Gunn’s take on Harley Quinn in “The Suicide Squad”, while others prefer her more wild interpretation in the Robbie-produced “Birds of Prey”. Me? Loved Gunn’s film but do agree Robbie had more to do in her 2020 all-girl superhero funkfest. Fans of the latest take will be glad to hear Gunn’s keen on collaborating again with Robbie on a Harley Quinn flick in the future. The dude thinks he knows how she rolls.
The DCEU’s new wunderkind was asked by The Hollywood Reporter whether he fancies another crack at the Joker’s ex.
”Yeah, I think I do, actually. I really feel that character, and as I’ve said before, I’ve taken a lot of characters from the comic books who either have slightly different personalities or not as clearly defined personalities. I’ve really shied away from the really popular characters because I like creating characters,” he explained. “I don’t generally like interpreting characters that are already fully actualized, but with Harley, that was a different thing. I really do love Paul Dini’s original vision, and I felt like I was able to become Harley while I was writing. And it’s a terrible, wonderful place to be.”
Gunn is currently working on a “Peacekeeper” spin-off series with star John Cena.
