Harley Quinn & Poison Ivy Movie?
Margot Robbie Will Not Stop Pestering DC!
Harley Quinn actress Margot Robbie says she’s been pitching Poison Ivy in the DCEU to Warner Bros. for a long time, and she’ll ‘keep pestering them’ until it happens.
Poison Ivy hasn’t appeared in the DC Extended Universe just yet, but it hasn’t been for a lack of trying on Margot Robbie’s part. Of course, DC fans will know Robbie best for playing Harley Quinn in DCEU movies like Suicide Squad and Birds of Prey. She reprises the role once again in James Gunn’s The Suicide Squad, and while tons of other DC supervillains are also featured, there’s no indication Poison Ivy will be included.
Because the Harley Quinn character is so closely associated with Poison Ivy in other mediums, Robbie has long been asked by DC fans when Ivy will be joining her partner in both crime and romance on the big screen, which almost happened in the ill-fated Gotham City Sirens. This is something Robbie really wants to see happen herself, and she’s been pitching the idea to Warner Bros. for years. In a new interview with Den of Geek, Robbie reveals that she is still hopeful and will continue with her lobbying to make it happen for real.
Trust me, I chew their ear off about it all the time. They must be sick of hearing it, but I’m like, ‘Poison Ivy, Poison Ivy. Come on, let’s do it.’ I’m very keen to see a Harley-Poison Ivy relationship on screen. It’d be so fun. So I’ll keep pestering them. Don’t worryMargot Robbie: Den of Geek
Speaking a while ago with Pridesource Robbie added:
If you read the comics you know that Poison Ivy and Harley have an intimate relationship. In some comics they convey it as a friendship; in other comics, you can see that they’re actually sexually involved as a couple. I’ve been trying to-I would love to have Poison Ivy thrown into the universe because the Harley and Poison Ivy relationship is one of my favourite aspects of the comics, so I’m looking to explore that on screen!!Margot Robbie: Pridesource
The closest fans have got to the pair was the NSFW Harley Quinn animated show starring Kaley Cuoco and Lake Bell as the pair. The second series sees Ivy try and marry her useless lover Kite Man (voiced by Matt Oberg) when the marriage becomes a disaster high-jinks lead to Harley and Ivy driving off into the sunset togther.
Fans of Robbie (and Quinn) can see her in the James Gunn The Suicide Squad against Starro. Have a look at the latest trailer and see what we’re waiting for!
