If you’ve been waiting to see Harley Quinn and Poison Ivy team up in live-action, you aren’t alone. Margot Robbie wants it to happen as well.
Ever since the forty-seventh episode of Batman: The Animated Series in 1993, “Harley and Ivy,” Harley Quinn and Poison Ivy have been a fan-favorite duo. Depending on the story, their relationship has been everything from best friends to a married couple, but they always seem to be in each other’s orbit. The one place that hasn’t happened, however, is in live-action.
It seems that Harley Quinn actress Margot Robbie is definitely on the side of people who would like to see it happen.
Speaking with Den of Geek in support of The Suicide Squad, Robbie said, “Trust me, I chew [Warner Bros.] 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 worry.”
Back when David Ayer was planning a Gotham City Sirens movie, the plan called for Harley and Poison Ivy to share the screen as they had in the comic of the same name. But the last update we had on that project was that it was “on pause.”
While Robbie has now made three movies as Harley Quinn, where she may next appear as the anti-hero is unknown. Birds of Prey and The Suicide Squad were shot, for the most part, back-to-back, but there are no announced plans as of yet for future Harley Quinn adventures.
We’ll have to wait and see where she may appear next, and if she will have Poison Ivy along for the ride as well.
