However, many fans in the community think that this request could have been made because of the domestic abuse he was alleged for involving his ex-wife. Currently, the sixth installment of the franchise is in development as a spin-off, with Margot Robbie in the lead role. While the fans have expressed their opinions demanding the return of the actor, it does not seem to come to fruition.
