margot robbie in suicide squad 2

It seemed like Margot Robbie‘s Harley Quinn had flown the nest. After becoming the breakout star of 2016’s Suicide Squad, Robbie set a spin-off for the beloved Batman rogue in the upcoming “girl gang” film Birds of Prey (and the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn).
