Margot Robbie Discusses Her Excised Backstory In SUICIDE SQUAD And HARLEY QUINN Spinoff Plans

After her much-loved performance in Suicide Squad, Margot Robbie is eager to continue playing Harley Quinn. Now, Robbie discusses her landing of the role, along with the backstory that was cut from the film.

Whether you love or hate the movie, there's no denying that Margot Robbie gave a standout performance as Harley Quinn in Suicide Squad. Given the near unanimous praise surrounding her portrayal of the character, it's probably safe to say we'll be seeing more of Harley in future installments of the DCEU.

In an interview with YouTube host Hazel Hayes on her show Tipsy Talk, Robbie (over a few mimosas) expressed her joy in being able to bring the character to the big screen for the first time. “I feel like I hit the lottery… The chicks never get these roles – we never get the roles where we have the funny one-liners and then the kick-ass action scene, but then also, like, an intricate character with an awesome story arc – you just don’t really get that, like in a big-budget film.” When asked whether we'll be seeing a Harley Quinn solo film down the line, Robbie said she was working on it.  “I’m trying to make that happen. Not for anything specifically, but just something – there’s so much more to do.”

It's been well documented that many scenes featuring Jared Leto's Joker were removed from the film, with the backstory featuring Harley's descent into madness being reduced to a few short flashbacks. Robbie explained that the scenes were shortened in order to focus on the main storyline of the team's mission against the Enchantress. “There was so much of our backstory… they probably realized that the emotional through-line of the story had to be the mission we were on, and kind of explaining The Enchantress’ position and all that kind of stuff, and the backstory stuff – though it’s like magic… there’s a lot but it just didn’t make sense to confuse the present storyline with that.”
