Since being appointed co-CEO of DC Studios alongside Peter Safran, James Gunn has wasted no time in reshaping the DCU. A whole new slate of movies and TV shows has been announced, and we've already bid farewell to actors like Henry Cavill, Ben Affleck, and Dwayne Johnson.

Gal Gadot's time as Diana Prince is also believed to be over after Patty Jenkins' Wonder Woman 3 was scrapped, but what about Harley Quinn? 

So far, we've seen Gunn bring a number of his actors from The Suicide Squad and Peacemaker into the DCU, and there have been rumblings for a while Margot Robbie will be among them. That's led to some backlash from fans upset about being forced to bid farewell to some of their other DCEU favourites, but what's next for Harley?

Over the weekend, a rumour started doing the rounds suggesting a prequel series is in the works, claiming it would tell "the story of how her need to save the Joker led to her mind being shattered."

We're not sure what the point of a show like that would be after 2016's Suicide Squad, but it's an intriguing enough premise. 

When Gunn was asked to chime in, he confirmed the rumoured series isn't in the works. Unfortunately, the filmmaker didn't clarify when and where we might see Harley again, hardly a surprise when none of the projects in "Chapter 1: Gods and Monsters" seem like a good fit for the anti-hero. 

She's bound to show up at some point, of course, and we'd be shocked if it isn't for a solo project of some sort. A long-overdue team-up with Poison Ivy would definitely be welcomed by fans.
