The Australian actress is currently filming Tarzan where she will star as Jane, and has upcoming roles in the upcoming films Focus with Will Smith and 2015 sci-fi release Z for Zachariah. Robbie has reportedly beat out English model Cara Delevingne for the role of Harley in the new DC Comics film.
Warner Bros. announced its upcoming Suicide Squad release last month, alongside a slew of DC Comics super hero movies, including team-based films based on Justice League and individual movies for characters The Flash, Aquaman, Cyborg and Wonder Woman, stretching into 2020.
DC has 10 movies planned to hit theaters between 2016 and 2020, Time Warner announced during an investor meeting at the time, kicking off with Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.
Suicide Squad is scheduled to hit theaters in 2016.
Variety has the exclusive first look photo from Craig Zobel’s Z for Zachariah,” starring Chris Pine, Margot Robbie and Chiwetel Ejiofor.
Adapted from Robert C. O’Brien post-apocalyptic 1974 novel, the thriller follows a small-town girl (Robbie) who lives alone on a farm in the only valley with breathable air in the wake of nuclear war. Her world is turned upside down when two strangers wander in from the forest.
The film is directed by Craig Zobel, produced by Material Pictures, and exec produced by Lucky Hat Entertainment along with Silver Reel and Lotus Entertainment, who is handling international sales.
The sci-fier is slated for release next year.
SEARING spring sun has done little to cool the fashion and fun of the final day of the Melbourne Cup Carnival.
The star of the day among the rich, famous and their hangers on was Wolf of Wall Street star Margot Robbie in the Swisse marquee.
“It’s so good to be back in Melbourne, I miss my family and friends all the time so it’s good to see them,” said The Wolf of Wall Street star, wearing Ellery.
Robbie praised Melbourne as the place where it all began for her, as she caught up with some of her former Neighbours co-stars in the Swisse marquee.
“I learnt so much while I was living in Melbourne and working on Neighbours,” she said.
“It’s always special and at the forefront of my mind. Neighbours is an education that you can’t get anywhere else. It prepares you for work overseas and in Hollywood.”
Meanwhile, Robbie’s boyfriend Tom Ackerley, slipped into the marquee unnoticed about an hour after the actor arrived.
Ackerley, an assistant film director based in London, will meet Robbie’s family while in Melbourne.
“It’s good,” Robbie replied when asked about her relationship with Ackerley.
“He hasn’t been to Melbourne before. We only have limited time here.”
The couple were snapped last week in London looking loved-up.
Robbie will be next seen in Hollywood blockbuster Tarzan and Jane, alongside True Blood star Alexander Skarsgard.
“I wanted Jane to be very independent,” Robbie said.
“She’s obviously co-dependent because it’s a massive love story between her and Tarzan, but I wanted her to be very capable when she was on her own — and also fierce and intelligent.”
MARGOT Robbie has knocked it out of the park at the Harpers Bazaar Women Of The Year awards in London, November 4th.
The Aussie actress picked up the Breakthrough Award on the night in a daring canary yellow ensemble featuring a deep plunging neckline.
The 24-year-old showed off her long blonde locks which featured long hair extensions after an earlier dalliance as a brunette.
The Wolf Of Wall Street actress almost managed to outshine Victoria’s Secret model Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, who stepped out in a sheer black jumpsuit.
The pair joined a host of other big names including Carey Mulligan, Victoria Beckham, Suki Waterhouse, Diane Von Furstenberg and Ellie Goulding to celebrate women’s achievements across art, fashion, film and music.

Recently, Marvel Studios hosted a special event to unveil the release dates of its under-production and upcoming superhero movies. Marvel went ahead and announced the release date of the third installment of the ‘Thor’ series which has been officially titled ‘Thor: Ragnarok’.
Addressing the audience, Kevin Feige, Marvel Studios’ head, explained that Ragnarok means “the end of all things,” and it is very likely that the film will witness an epic-scale battle set in Asgard.
As far as the plot of ‘Thor: Ragnarok’ is concerned, there are rumors that Thor as well as his allies will be fighting against the Fire Demons of Muspelheim. Moreover, it is being speculated that Thor will also be battling his greatest enemy, Surtur.
In ‘Thor: Ragnarok’, fans will see Chris Hemsworth return to play the character of Thor. More recently, the producers have confirmed that Tom Hiddleston will also reprise the role of fan-favorite villain Loki.
A report by Screenrant says that so far is it not clear how Loki will precisely fit in the story because Surtur is already the main antagonist of the story. However, in the comic books, Loki partnered with the Fire Demons, and freeing Surtur actually brings him to Ragnarok. The website also said that it is very likely that the movie will adhere to the comic book storyline.
Referring to Thor’s love interest, a report by Unleash the Fanboy says that Thor may possibly get a new lady love in the character of Amora the Enchantress. There are rumors that ‘The Wolf of Wall Street’ actress Margot Robbie will be portraying the character.
It has been announced that filming for ‘Thor: Ragnarok’ will commence in 2016, as soon as Hemsworth finishes his work for the ‘Snow White and the Huntsman’ prequel titled ‘The Huntsman’.
As it stands, ‘Thor: Ragnarok’ is scheduled for release on July 28, 2017.
