Months before Suicide Squad has even opened, Warner Bros. is so confident than Margot Robbie’s Harley Quinn will be a breakout star, that they’ve given the actress a chance to reprise the role in an untitled project that she will also produce, according to an article in The Hollywood Reporter.

What is even more interesting is that the project will not be a Harley Quinn solo movie. Rather, it will focus on a number of DC’s female heroes and villains. Names being thrown around include Batgirl and the Birds of Prey.

Robbie is the driving force behind the movie, according to sources. She dove deep into DC comics lore to prepare for her role as Harley and fell in love with the female heroes and villains. She pitched the idea of a female-driven superhero film to Warner Bros. brass and got the go-ahead based on the strength of her performance in Suicide Squad.

Robbie has brought in an unnamed mystery writer who is currently penning the script, and she is reportedly very excited to bring more of DC’s deeps stable of female characters to the big screen.
