dc films plans

Two Joker movies? One and a half Harley Quinn spin-offs? A Ben Affleck-less Batman movie? At this point, we’ve given up trying to make sense of Warner Bros.’ DC Films plans. But newly appointed DC Entertainment film production president Walter Hamada is doing his best to make them sensible once again.

That includes seemingly rebooting much of the DC Extended Universe, and potentially launching a new label to encompass the multiple standalone and off-universe films that Warner Bros. has in the works. Because that will make people less confused over both Jared Leto and Joaquin Phoenix playing the Joker.

harley quinn movie

Harley Quinn has had a meteoric rise to the front of Warner Bros.’ DC film slate, becoming the focus of three potential movie projects. And that’s based solely off of Margot Robbie‘s splashy appearance in 2016’s Suicide Squad — and the marketability of the character’s striking costume to the Hot Topic crowd. But while the states of the character’s potential spin-offs — the Joker and Harley Quinn movie, Gotham City Sirens — are still one big question mark, Robbie has been steadfastly pushing a Harley Quinn solo movie for the past few years.

But Harley might not be flying as solo as you would think.

Birds of Prey scripts

Ever since Suicide Squad made $745 million in theaters, Warner Bros. has been searching for a way to get Margot Robbie back in her Harley Quinn costume for another movie. They’ve seemingly found it: word came out earlier this week that up-and-coming filmmaker Cathy Yan (Dead Pigs) would direct Robbie in a film that sounded like a mix of Birds of Prey and Gotham City Sirens.

A new follow-up report says WB has two different Birds of Prey scripts in the works right now, and in addition to Harley Quinn, there’s only one other character who appears in both scripts. Read More »

Harley Quinn Spin-Off

Just earlier today, we learned that the script for the developing Transformers spin-off focusing on the Autobot Bumblebee was completed and Paramount Pictures would be looking for a director soon. The woman behind that script is Christina Hodson, and now that she’s done with alien robots, she’s heading into comic book territory.

Back in May, months before Suicide Squad hit theaters, we learned that Warner Bros. Pictures and DC Entertainment were already developing a spin-off that would feature Margot Robbie reprising her role as Harley Quinn. At the time, we knew a female writer was on board, but her identity remained a secret. Now we know that Christina Hodson is that woman. Find out more about the Harley Quinn spin-off after the jump.
