The long-awaited DC film directed and written by James Gunn opens in theaters on August 6.
Many actors join large franchises in order to be able, normally, to make a name and have their cache increase to unsuspected levels. But in the long run, they have a limit and decide to leave that role. But that It will never happen with Margot Robbie.
The actress has played the iconic villain of Sinkingn, Harley Quinn, in three DC movies: Suicide squad by David Ayer, Birds of Prey and the Fantabulous Emancipation of Harley Quinn and the most recent The Suicide Squad by James Gunn.
But one thing is clear Robbie, according to an interview with Brititsh Vogue and it is that it will continue to give life for the simple fact of continuing to defend the women who write these blockbusters:
From a business or statistical point of view, those are the high paying jobs. But what I really want to do with this is advocate for the women who write great blockbuster action movies. And furthermore, the perception that women are not interested in action is ridiculous. Also, they are really fun
This vindictive message is increasingly present today. Often times, the female main and minor characters are seen more as props to the male characters or are not very important in the plot. For this reason, Margot Robbie decided to produce and star in Birds of prey, film directed by Cathy Yan.
The new Suicide Squad
After the bad reviews of David Ayer’s version, Warner Bros. decided to trust James Gunn, father of Guardians of the Galaxy, to return to the story of The Suicide Squad.
In it we see Margot Robbie again as Harley Quinn with Viola Davis, Joel Kinnaman and Jai Courtney reprising their roles from the original film. John Cena, Daniel Melchior, David Dastmalchian, Steve Agee, and Peter Capaldi, among others, are the new faces that join this long-awaited film that opens in theaters next August 6.
