The rumor was mostly unfounded to begin with, but with the actress confirming that she was not pictured in the photos in question, that's pretty much all we need to know.

    James Gunn is Down to Direct a Harley Quinn Movie

    James Gunn has already teased development of DC Comics projects that he will be tackling once he's done with Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3, and one of those projects could be a Harley Quinn movie. Though nothing has officially been announced, The Hollywood Reporter asked if he would consider directing a movie with Margot Robbie returning as Harley Quinn. At the very least, Gunn admitted that he feels like he has a knack for the character:

    "I really feel that character, and as I've said before, I've taken a lot of characters from the comic books who either have slightly different personalities or not as clearly defined personalities. I've really shied away from the really popular characters because I like creating characters. I don't generally like interpreting characters that are already fully actualized, but with Harley, that was a different thing. I really do love Paul Dini's original vision, and I felt like I was able to become Harley while I was writing. And it's a terrible, wonderful place to be."
