This rumour comes from supposed industry insider, Daniel Ritchman.
He’s now claiming that Warner Bros. Pictures is actually thinking of getting the ball rolling again on the Joker and Harley Quinn movie.
This was something they were keen on doing back before Suicide Squad came out.
However, that movie was then released and Jared Leto’s performance was widely panned.
That said, people loved Margot Robbie’s take on Harley Quinn and she subsequently starred in Birds of Prey.
Leto hasn’t played the Joker again and as if to add insult to injury, Joaquin Phoenix then went on to play the character in another movie and won an Oscar for it.
Anyway, it seems as though time heals all wounds and Warner Bros. is interested in the movie again.
The Joker and Harley Quinn movie could be back in the works
Let me be totally honest with you here, I really do not think this movie will ever happen.
Yeah, maybe some people within Warner Bros. are thinking about it.
However, Jared Leto’s performance was so catastrophic and he was reportedly so difficult to work with, I doubt they’ll want to open that can of worms again.
Margot Robbie, on the other hand, could play Harley again.
She could, and should, play that character for years to come.
We’ve already got a pandemic to deal with.
Don’t give us another movie with Leto as the Joker. Please!
