It's Official: Margot Robbie Will Executive Produce a Harley Quinn Spin-Off
Back in May, it was announced that a Suicide Squad spin-off was in the works starring Margot Robbie's Harley Quinn and several other DC villainesses. However, that was before Suicide Squad actually came out and was savaged by critics, so it was unclear whether Robbie's popularity would carry the spin-off through. Now, it's been confirmed that the spin-off is a go, with Robbie starring and executive producing.

The report comes from THR, who revealed that Robbie has signed a first-look deal with Warner Bros., who is supposedly renewing focus on both tentpole properties like DC Comics and female-driven storytelling.

Opening quote
The actress already has two projects set at Warners: a Suicide Squad spinoff for her character Harley Quinn (as well as other DC heroines) that she will executive produce and an adaptation of Dean N. Jensen's Queen of the Air to which she is attached to star.
Closing quote

This isn't too much of a surprise, considering that Suicide Squad still did very well at the box office, and Robbie's Harley Quinn was one of the few well-received aspects of the movie. But after plenty of criticism for failing to course-correct, it's great that the DCEU is doubling down about the elements of its universe that are working.
