When it was announced that James Gunn would be helming the sequel to Suicide Squad, reports emerged that it would be a relaunch that would most likely feature a new cast of characters.
According to Forbes’ Mark Hughes, Margot Robbie’s Harley Quinn is expected to appear in The Suicide Squad, that’s expected to release August 6, 2021.
Hughes’ official quote from the article is the following:
“I have learned from sources close to production that in fact, the information about Harley Quinn being absent from the new Suicide Squad movie is no longer up to date — she is indeed expected to appear in James Gunn’s The Suicide Squad, which is expected to begin production later this year.”
James Gunn’s Skwad movie won’t be a complete relaunch, as it will feature one of the first movie’s main characters. Not much is known about this movie at the moment. According to the quote, the movie will start production in late 2019, so there will most likely be casting announcements very soon.
Margot Robbie is currently shooting Birds of Prey which will release February 7, 2020.
