Margot Robbie won the hearts of audiences with her portrayal of Harley Quinn in David Ayer's 'Suicide Squad'. Even before the film hit theaters, there were talks of a spin-off film starring Robbie has Harley possibly being greenlit. This week, that has all become official, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Margot Robbie gets a first-look deal with Warner Bros.

Robbie has officially signed a first-look deal with the studio. This means thatRobbie will be able to get her own films produced, through her LuckyChap Entertainment production company, with WB's help.

The Wolf of Wall Street actress currently has two projects that will be developed under this deal, one of them being the Harley Quinn spin-off film. These projects will be developed by Margot Robbie, along with Tom Ackerley, Sophia Kerr and Josey McNamara.

Harley Quinn's spin-off movie

Not only will Margot Robbie return as the title character in the spin-off, she will also be a producer on the film.

But she will not be the only female lead in the film. The studio has previously stated that the spin off film will include other female characters from DC Comics. This could include Poison Ivy, Black Canary and/or the Birds of Prey, Catwoman or a number of others. Regardless, this is going to be the second female-lead superhero property for Warner Bros., with Wonder Woman being its first, which debuts in theaters next summer.

The success of 'Suicide Squad'

The fact that Suicide Squad, despite some bad reviews, is already grossing over $700 million worldwide is good news for the spin-off. People will still very much be looking forward to seeing the character on screen again, along with any number of other female DC Comics characters. Robbie's performance as Harley Quinn was well-received by audiences for the most part, even if some had trouble with Jared Leto's version of the Joker.

The financial success of Suicide Squad also means that the studio will continue to move forward with some of the lesser-known DC Comics properties in their DC Extended Universe.
