James Gunn’s recent response on a podcast with Michael Rosenbaum has left fans of Margot Robbie’s Harley Quinn feeling disappointed and uncertain about her future in the DC Universe. The director stated that he has other priorities in the years to come, leaving no definitive statement on the franchise.

James Gunn

When asked about his next project within the DC universe, James Gunn was unsure and even ended the conversation with a firm “No” after being pestered. During an interview with The Playlist, he mentioned the possibility of working on a film related to the characters from The Suicide Squad. However, he remained uncertain whether it would be a direct sequel or a separate project set in the same world. Gunn stated that he’s not entirely sure what he’ll do next because it could potentially be a non-DC movie. If it were a DC movie, he’s unsure if it would be a continuation of The Suicide Squad or something different within that universe.

Possible paraphrased version: Fans of the Suicide Squad may be disappointed to learn that a sequel might not happen, as suggested by some clues from the director’s coyness. This uncertainty fuels the speculation about the fate of Margot Robbie’s character and her possible involvement in the reboot of the DC Extended Universe (DCEU) under James Gunn’s direction. Despite no official confirmation yet, many fans are eager to see more of Robbie’s performance as Harley Quinn, even though she is currently busy with promoting her new movie Barbie. Gunn, who often shares his thoughts on Twitter, has been bombarded with questions about the future of the DCEU, keeping the buzz alive among fans.
