Pop Culture Fix: Margot Robbie Ships Harley and Ivy, Jenna Ortega Ships Wednesday and Enid

Hello and happy Abbott Elementary Christmas Episode Day! Here’s a Pop Culture Fix for you while you wait!


+ Margot Robbie wants to bring Poison Ivy and Harley Quinn’s romance to the big screen. I also want that! Robie told Comic Book: “I have been pushing for that for years. I cannot tell you how hard I’ve been pushing for that. I want it too,” Robbie said of a live-action romance between Harley and Ivy. When asked if she had any actors in mind to play her romantic opposite, she added, “Honestly, when I pictured, I always picture like Poison Ivy in the comics. I don’t really actually picture an actress doing it, but I agree, that would be so good.”

+ Jenna Ortega ships Wednesday and Enid too! I also want that! She told PRIDE, ““In a perfect world, Wednesday and Enid would have been a thing.”

+ HBO has cancelled Legendary after three seasons.

+ The Flash will be back on February 8th, which we are excited for because Javicia Leslie’s gonna be on at some point! She’s playing Red Death and also I don’t know why Collider chose a photo of her in Kate Kane’s costume and not Ryan Wilder’s costume!

+ Willow’s queer romance “never received any resistance,” says series creator Jonathan Kasdan. (Nic will be writing about this for you so soon!)

+ Cara Delevingne had no concept of term ‘queer’ growing up.

+ The top 12 ships on Tumblr this year were all queer OBVIOUSLY.

+ The Sex Lives of College Girl breaks the myth about lesbian sex.

+ White Lotus star Sabrina Impacciatore reveals deleted scenes, celebrates Valentina’s sexual awakening.

+ Lindsay Lohan on why queer rep is the future of movies.

+ Heartstopper season two has finished filming.

  1. It boggles the mind that HBO cancelled Legendary when ballroom is having such a moment. Like Beyoncé (Beyoncé? BEYONCÉ?) just released an album about it! They’re gonna pass on free promo by BEYONCÉ?

  2. As someone who just started watching Wednesday, who cares about Wednesday/Enid when Wednesday/Bianca is RIGHT THERE! Enemies to lovers, simmering sexual tension about who’s on top? A sad noodle of a boy in between them as a proxy for their real feelings? These are things lesbian dreams are made of!
