So, sweet fucking Christ. In the past day, the Slop Culture EchoChamber learned about a standalone Joker movie, starring someone other than Jared Leto, which will take place outside the DCEU. Then, we learned that the Ben Affleck-powered The Batman will also take place outside the DCEU. Now finally, we have learned that there’s a Joker and Harley Quinn movie in development, which does star Jared Leto, and will take place in the DCEU.
What the fuck is going on.
Paul Dini is joining the creative team for Harley Quinn, starting in April. The genius behind the fan favorite will be writing an ongoing back-up story.
Harley Quinn’s spin-off movie has landed a director! And a title! And it seems, a premise!
I fucking hated Suicide Squad. I fucking hated its portrayal of Harley Quinn. That said, I am unrepentant in my fanboy love for the visual aesthetic Robbie cut as Quinn, and thus I’m excited about a movie starring the character. That’s ideally better than Suicide Squad. Much, much better.
I really just want to watch two hours of Harley Quinn. I know this makes me a fedora-wearing dick lord, but I can’t help it. If these teasers are telling me anything, though, it’s that at the very least I’m going to enjoy her in this movie.
Harley Quinn is obviously my favorite part of the Suicide Squad movie. ‘Cause she’s a total bananas babe, and I’m a fourteen year-old boy (not) deep down at all. So bring on a solo movie, bring on a solo movie with the star producing and starring.
Just Ramon Villalobos. Being awesome as usual. With gorgeous inks by Frank Stone. All about this is lovely, in a murderous, homicidal sort of way.
After jump because of like, you know, spoilers.
