Could Poison Ivy be joining the DCEU?

If Margot Robbie has her way, perhaps.

The actress, who plays psychiatrist-turned-psycho Harley Quinn in Suicide Squad, gave an interview to PrideSource recently that mentioned Harley’s sexuality.

“If you read the comics you know that Poison Ivy and Harley have an intimate relationship,” she said, responding to a question concerning being mindful about how Harley is portrayed. “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 favorite aspects of the comics, so I’m looking to explore that on screen.”

Hell. Yes.

While it’s true that normally actors don’t have tons of sway over what happens in their movies, fortunately for us, Robbie is co-producing the upcoming Birds of Prey. She also has a first-look deal with Warner Brothers through her LuckyChap Entertainment production house. So hopefully they’ll be smart enough to keep Robbie happy and give the fans what they want.

The DCEU has had a rough go of it compared to Marvel, with many of their movies being panned by critics and fans alike. Wonder Woman was a break out success, and there’s hope Birds of Prey will follow suit. Both films star female DCU icons and are directed by women, an extreme rarity in the superhero movie-verse, regardless of the company behind them.

Unfortunately, we already know that Birds of Prey isn’t bringing Poison Ivy along for the ride, but the kickass team of Huntress (Mary Elizabeth Winstead) and Black Canary (Jurnee Smollett-Bell), along with Harley, should still provide a good dash of gal palin’ until Robbie convinces the DCEU to get to some gal palin’.

As for who she hopes will play her on-screen persona’s thoroughly non-platonic counterpart?

“You know what?” Robbie admits. “I’ve thought about it a lot and there’s no one person who springs to mind. I’m pretty open-minded.”

Yeah. We’ve thought about it a lot, too.

Birds of Prey is set to come out in February 2020.
