Today, in yet even more strange DC Films news; The Hollywood Reporter announced (first rumored by ScreenRant last month) that DC Films is developing yet another Joker-centric spin-off Batman movie titled Harley Quinn & The Joker. To capitalize on the success of Margot Robbie and Jared Leto’s casting in last years Suicide Squad. This film will be directed by Crazy, Stupid, Love directors Glenn Ficarra and John Requa. And will feature a criminal love story in the vein of Bonny & Clyde or Mr. and Mrs. Smith.
This will also be the third DCEU film in development to feature Harley Quinn after Suicide Squad 2 and Gotham City Sirens. This should also not be confused with yesterday’s announcement of a non-canon Joker origin movie that WILL NOT star Jared Leto. Which also does not take place in the same timeline as the Justice League.
Harley Quinn & The Joker has no set release date
