The remnants of the DC Extended Universe will no longer play a factor when James Gunn and Peter Safran finally hit the reset button on the franchise. We already have a gist of what to expect from the duo's restructured DC Universe but as it stands, fans are still being kept in the dark with regard to key details surrounding DC Studios' grand scheme.

This includes the actors who will be joining the "new" (and hopefully improved) DCU. For months, there's been a major debacle as to which stars will remain in the franchise after it was confirmed that Henry Cavill and Ben Affleck have officially been ousted as Superman and Batman respectively.

Although unconfirmed, rumors claim that only Jason Momoa and the cast of Peacemaker and The Suicide Squad will crossover to the new DCU. Now, Gunn pretty much confirmed one actor fans were hoping to see in the rebooted franchise.

Responding to a fan who asked if there's a chance he'll be working with Margot Robbie again in the future, the director simply responded: "For sure". While it was already obvious that Robbie was among the list of names DC Studios intends to keep for their rebooted film and television franchise, some fans still needed this confirmation.

Now, we don't know for sure when Margot will reprise her role as Harley Quinn but it's also worth mentioning that the projects Gunn and Safran announced earlier this year isn't the full Chapter 1 slate. There's still a possibility that Harley could end up becoming part of the DCU's first phase, especially considering Amanda Waller is set to play a pivotal role thru her standalone series.

The DC Universe's first theatrical offering, Superman: Legacy is scheduled to come out on July 11, 2025
