There's no denying that Warner Bros. struck gold with Robert Pattinson's The Batman and with the unprecedented success the Matt Reeves-directed film is currently enjoying, it surely open the doors for more stories to be explored. Now, it looks like the Batverse is truly on its way to becoming a full-blown shared universe, spawning various spinoff projects. The latest report swirling around the internet is that Matt Reeves will also be bringing beloved DC anti-hero Harley Quinn to the mix.
With Barry Keoghan confirmed to be the Batverse's Joker, it makes total sense for his longtime henchwoman to join him in causing havoc across Gotham City. The real question is, which actor could end up playing the role? Well, we may already have the answer to that.
According to a new scoop from the folks over at Giant Freakin Robot, Victoria Pedretti of Netflix fame is currently the top choice to play Harley in Reeves' The Batman universe. The specifics regarding her potential casting were not disclosed but once a deal is finalized, she is expected to appear in several projects, including the film's sequels and an Arkham Asylum series.

It's worth noting that New Mutants star Anya Taylor-Joy was recently rumored to be in the running for the role but with this latest development, it's safe to assume that she is now out of the picture. But then again, nothing has been officially confirmed yet so I guess we'll just have to wait and see how everything plays out in the end.
The Batman is still shattering box office records worldwide.
