Lady Gaga is taking on the role of Harley Quinn, which had been portrayed by Margot Robbie in films like ‘Suicide Squad’, ‘Birds of Prey’ and ‘The Suicide Squad’.

Robbie expressed her happiness that the Harley Quinn character will continue to live on. “It makes me so happy because I said from the very beginning, all I want is for Harley Quinn to be one of those characters, the way like Macbeth or Batman always gets passed from great actor to great actor,” Robbie told MTV News in 2022. She continued, “It’s such an honour to have built a foundation strong enough that Harley can now be one of those characters that other actors get to have a go at playing. I think she’ll do something incredible with it.”
