It’s an interesting time for the DCEU. Justice League didn’t live up to expectations, but many consider it a step in the right direction for the universe. As for what’s next, while Aquaman, SHAZAM!, and Wonder Woman 2 are all confirmed (with the earliest coming in late 2018), the rest of the movie slate is very much up in the air. There’s of course rumors of Man of Steel 2, Flashpoint, Green Lanterns, and The Batman. Suicide Squad 2 is coming, but when it starts filming is up in the air, and then, there’s a bunch of rumored solo films for characters like Deathstroke, Black Adam, and Nightwing that have people attached to them, but nothing more than that. And now, we can throw in Harley Quinn to the solo movie market.
While we know Margot Robbie will play Harley again in Suicide Squad 2, as well as rumored project Gotham City Sirens and Joker Vs. Harley, Robbie herself told MTV that she’s now working on a “totally separate” Harley Quinn solo film.

Random? Not so much, Harley Quinn is easily one of the most famous females in the DC Comics universe, and given her popularity boom in both comics and mainstream media, and the success of Wonder Woman, it’s not surprising at all that DC and Warner Bros. is considering this.
The only question really is, when would this come out? Likely after Suicide Squad 2, but before Sirens? After Sirens? Will there even be a Sirens film? Too many questions.
