Joker and Harley Quinn Movie in Development at Warner Bros.

Joker and Harley Quinn Movie in Development at Warner Bros.

Update 8/24 – If feel like you’ve already heard strikingly similar news in the past 24 hours, don’t worry–you haven’t gone stark-raving, acid-bath mad. There are currently two Joker movies in development at Warner Bros, the first of which being a non-DCEU-canon origin story being put together by Martin Scorsese. But within the parameters of the DC Extended Universe we’ve come to know, we’ll also have a Joker flick featuring Jared Leto’s incarnation of the Clown Prince of Crime and Margot Robbie’s Harley Quinn.

The Hollywood Reporter confirmed the news on Wednesday following previous reports from the end of July; furthermore, the news states that This Is Us and Crazy Stupid Love directors Glenn Ficarra and John Requa are stepping behind this new project, which will serve as something of a follow-up to David Ayer’s Suicide Squad, in which these incarnations of the characters were introduced to the big screen.

Stay tuned for further details on the project, and try not to lose your mind struggling to remember which Joker movie is which.

7/21 – Suicide Squad wasn’t exactly beloved across the board, but most people who saw the film agreed on two things: Margot Robbie was great as Harley Quinn, and the movie needed a lot more of Jared Leto‘s Joker. Well we say give the people what they want! And it looks like Warner Bros. and DC is going to do just that, with a spin-off that will pit the two love birds against one another.

Screen Rant reports that the live-action Harley Quinn vs The Joker (possibly just a working title) is in development to be produced by Geoff Johns, and it will be set in the DCEU. This movie would be separate from both a Suicide Squad sequel, as well as director David Ayers’ Gotham City Sirens which will also star Robbie.

While not sharing a ton of screen time together, Harley Quinn and the Joker’s twisted relationship in Suicide Squad did show us glimpses as to how it started, and what they were both willing to do to be together, including the Joker breaking her out of prison at the film’s end (and after she had just received her espresso maker!).

Could Harley’s brief experiences as a good guy be enough to get her to see the error of her ways? Or could the Joker’s mistreatment finally push her to get away from him? No matter what causes the rift between them, we’re all in on seeing them fight one another.

Warner Bros. holds their Hall H panel at San Diego Comic-Con tomorrow, so we’ll keep you posted if any news about the movie comes out of it.
