Suicide Squad doesn't care what you think about all those so-so reviews. In fact, Suicide Squad is coming back for more. Margot Robbie just inked a first-look deal with Warner Bros. that will include a Suicide Squad spin-off centered on Harley Quinn, according to the Hollywood Reporter. The deal is a partnership with Robbie's own LuckyChap Entertainment.

Though not much is known about the Harley Quinn spin-off just yet, THRnoted that the untitled film will also feature "other DC heroines." Robbie will also be executive producer on the project. Previous rumors of a Suicide Squad spin-off had Jared Leto's Joker pegged as the focal point, though whisperings of that possibility have now mostly subsided.

Speaking with Fandango's Erik Davis back in April, Robbie teased the possibility of playing Harley Quinn for as long as possible. "I'm so not done playing her yet," Robbie said at the time. "I will do whatever I can to keep playing Harley for another couple of years. Until my body gives out and I can't do it anymore."

Robbie's fresh deal with Warner Bros. will also include this year's drama Terminal, a Tonya Harding biopic, and an adaptation of Matt Ruff's psychological thriller Bad Monkeys. The first-look agreement is part of the studio's "renewed focus" on giving a platform to female-driven stories, which earlier this year inspired the launch of the Emerging Directors Workshop program.

And as for that hopefully R-rated (and less cluttered) Suicide Squad 2? Still no official word from the movie gods, but keep it in your thoughts and prayers.
