Boomerang and Harley Actors Hope To Return To The DCEU

Despite not receiving the best critical acclaim, Suicide Squad certainly seems to be bringing in the dollars for Warner Bros, meaning a sequel is looking more than possible. And even if there doesn’t end up being a further instalment in the Suicide Squad franchise, the fact that it’s part of a shared universe means we will almost definitely see some of these characters again.

Two particularly strong candidates to return to the DCEU are Jai Courtney’s Captain Boomerang and Margot Robbie’s Harley Quinn. It’s already been said that Robbie signed a multi-picture deal when she joined Squad, and a Harley solo film with the potential to include other DC heroines has been heavily rumoured. Here’s what Robbie had to say on the potential of returning as Harley:

“I hope (to play this character) forever. I really, I could play Harley for a long time. I don’t know how long. We’ve signed on, I mean I think everyone’s committed to a couple of films. There’s so much you can do. They’re the sort of characters that you could keep exploring and find so many more, so much more to do.”

Courtney had this to say when asked if he would return:

“Yeah, we’re all around for a few movies, should they choose to make them, and I hope so. I’m having way too much fun to think about letting this go anytime soon.”

Robbie also added that she feels they would ‘probably bring in a new Harley’ when her body stopped allowing her to do her own stunts.

Do you want to see these two return to the DCEU? What other Squad members would you like to see again? Sound off in the comments.

It feels good to be bad…Assemble a team of the world’s most dangerous, incarcerated Super Villains, provide them with the most powerful arsenal at the government’s disposal, and send them off on a mission to defeat an enigmatic, insuperable entity. U.S. intelligence officer Amanda Waller has determined only a secretly convened group of disparate, despicable individuals with next to nothing to lose will do. However, once they realize they weren’t picked to succeed but chosen for their patent culpability when they inevitably fail, will the Suicide Squad resolve to die trying, or decide it’s every man for himself?

Starring Will Smith, Jared Leto, Margot Robbie, Joel Kinnaman, Viola Davis, Jai Courtney, Jay Hernandez, Karen Fukuhara, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje, Ike Barinholtz, Scott Eastwood and Cara Delevingne, Suicide Squad is out in theatres now.

    Here’s hoping they are around for a good long while.

    I badly want to see a Gotham City Sirens movie with Harley, Katana and Ivy getting involved in some shenanigans and Batgirl has to rally her own squad, maybe Huntress and Catwoman for a light-hearted Girls’ Night Out-kind of story.

    I’ve seen “Suicide Squad,” and can say that it is solidly entertaining. The critics have an agenda that has nothing to do with the quality of this film. They know that a bad review will garner them more attention, and they are all about self-promotion. I have read several reviews that call the movie “confusing.” That is total nonsense. A person of normal intelligence can follow the plot of “Suicide Squad.” The critics are resorting to making stuff up when they can’t find enough legitimate faults.

    If you long for a DC film to receive positive critical notices, I will make a bold prediction here: The critics will love “Wonder Woman,” even if it is not a good movie. The media critics will not dare to be politically incorrect enough to denigrate the first comic book film about a solo female superhero. You only have to wait until June, 2017 for a DC movie to get rave reviews, I guarantee it.

      Agreed, and don’t forget it’s directed by a woman. It could be awful and it will be bulletproof. If the trailer is any indication, it will be great, though. It’s sad that there appears to be so many agendas out there being served, but the DCEU seems to be going along pretty well, despite the haters.

      Total agreement. I definitely overhyped my anticipation for the film to the point I was a bit disappointed-but that’s on me. It’s definitely a solid good time at the movies, and that’s a good thing. My only problems come from the first act being edited rapid-fire like a music video. I also hate when movies freeze-frame with a character’s “stats”. Too on the nose for my taste. That said, loved ALL the performances, the “cameos” were a blast, and the Joker/Harley relationship was ripped right out of the Animated Series to perfection.

      I also think the critical backlash will actually FREE WB from trying to please those pretentious a-holes. They got bashed for being too dark, then they get bashed for “ripping off Marvel”. Meanwhile both those films are making BANK and generally pleasing their target audiences. Hopefully WB will throw their hands up and keep doing things THEIR OWN way.

        I too, hope that Warner Bros. will continue to develop the DC cinematic universe their own way. Unfortunately, George Lucas was intimidated by the critics into changing his plans for the Star Wars prequels, and I think his changes weakened the final products.

      Critics are spot on; this movie is a lot worse than BvS. The only difference is that this movie goes to the other extreme; BvS suffered from too many unnecessary plots, while SS suffers from a tissue paper thin one. It’s like WB doesn’t know how to do things in moderation.

      • unpaidpundit

        Well, then I suppose the critics were confused by a “tissue paper thin” plot!

    Hoping we see them again to, I mean Harley is a given to return but I hope Boomerang does to, hopefully in a Suicide Squad 2.
