'Birds of Prey': Margot Robbie says she is 'allowed' to switch from DC to Marvel but Harley has her hands full
She is currently one of the biggest names in the industry, so it makes sense that Marvel might want to hire her for a project in the future
For a long time, it was assumed that actors who work on DC movies are not allowed to work for Marvel, but it seems there isn't any such rule in place after all. At least, not if you are Margot Robbie.
"I’m not not allowed," Robbie told ComicBook.com. She also clarified that she is unlikely to switch over to the Marvel Cinematic Universe any time soon. "I don't know. Harley keeps my hands full to be honest," she said.
The 'Birds of Prey' star is currently one of the biggest names in the industry, nominated for multiple awards and is beloved by fans. So it makes sense that Marvel might want to hire her for a project in the future, though for now, we will just have to be happy seeing her play the fantabulous Harley Quinn.
'Birds of Prey (And The Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn)' follows the adventures of a group of powerful women characters including Robbie's Harley Quinn, Black Canary (Jurnee Smollett-Bell), Huntress (Mary Elizabeth Winstead), Renee Montoya (Rosie Perez) and Cassandra Cain (Ella Jay Basco) as they blaze a path of their own across Gotham City. The movie also stars Ewan McGregor as the villainous Roman Sionis / Black Mask, the primary antagonist of the film.
The upcoming movie has been directed by Cathy Yan ('Dead Pigs') with Christina Hodson of the 'Bumblebee' fame writing the script. A number of people have ended up working for both DC and Marvel movies, including Laurence Fishburne of 'Ant-Man and the Wasp' (he previously acted in 'Man of Steel' and 'Batman v Superman') and Andy Serkis, who appeared in 'Avengers: Age of Ultron' and 'Black Panther' and is set to play a major role as Alfred Pennyworth in Matt Reeves' 'The Batman'. So if Robbie does ever plan on making the move, there's plenty of precedents.
'Birds of Prey' will arrive in theaters on February 7.
