So, we all thought Suicide Squad was going to be great, and it wasn't.

Despite being successful at the box office, the film was panned by critics who thought - like most people - that it wasn't up to the standard of a lot of the Marvel Universe films.

However, there was one bright light shining out of the film, Margot Robbie playing Harley Quinn.

Critics praised her performance more than anything else in the film, and there has already been talk of a film starring her character and Jared Leto's joker, as well as the sequel - the inventively titled Suicide Squad 2.

Now it has emerged that there will be another film that focusses solely on Robbie's Harley Quinn, and potentially a load of other ass-kicking female characters from the DC Universe.

In an interview with MTV, Margot let slip that work on the (as yet untitled) film has been under way for about two years.

She told them: "It's hard to kind of talk about it because all this stuff is under like, kind of lock and key.

"But, yeah, I've been working on a separate spin-off Harley thing for a while now...

"It's a totally separate one, there's a lot going on right now and I'm not sure, I honestly don't think anyone knows what's going to be the next thing to happen but everyone's keen to get Harley back on screen so everyone's working on lots of different versions of what that could be...

"I want to see her with other women, I kept saying it when we were shooting Suicide Squad, I was like 'She needs her girlfriends!'.

"She needs other girls around her because she loves that, you see it in the comics: she loves meeting people - any people - but she needs a little girl gang."

There has also been talk of a DC Supervillains team-up movie, with Suicide Squad director David Ayer and Margot returning alongside others (rumoured to be Poison Ivy and Catwoman).

The film is reportedly to be called Gotham City Sirens and it's going to have to be good to catch up with Marvel.

With three Harley Quinn heavy projects due to come out, it seems as if this Halloween might be the first of many that sees endless hordes of people squeeze their way into Harley's hot-pants.
