If there’s anyone leading the crusade for the Harley Quinn/Joker spinoff movie, it’s Margot Robbie. In a new interview promoting ‘Suicide Squad,’ Margot is practically pleading for the movie! Click to WATCH!
“I’m trying to make that happen,” Margot, 26, told the Tipsy Talk host with a smile. “Not for anything specifically, but just something… There’s just so much more to do.”
Margot admits that so much of The Joker and Harley Quinn’s backstory was filmed for Suicide Squad, but it ultimately didn’t make it into the movie. Margot noted that the editors probably realized the emotional core of the movie had to be the mission the Suicide Squad was on, and not Harley and The Joker.
Margot knows The Joker and Harley Quinn have a “very dysfunctional relationship” that’s definitely worth its own movie. Maybe some of the flashbacks they filmed for Suicide Squad can be used in this potential spinoff movie! Suicide Squad may have gotten slammed by critics, but no one would complain about this spinoff.
Jared Leto, 44, recently revealed that “a lot” of the scenes he filmed were cut from the final edit of Suicide Squad. He said he hopes those scenes will see the “light of day” at some point. He later told BBC Radio 1 that he had “probably enough footage in this film for a Joker movie.” Even though Jared’s barely in the movie, he still manages to be a scene-stealer.
Let’s just give the people what they want already! A movie focusing on just The Joker and Harley Quinn would be EPIC. Jared has said that he feels like Suicide Squad is just an “introduction to The Joker.” So maybe he knows something that Margot doesn’t!
HollywoodLifers, do you think Harley Quinn and The Joker should get their own spinoff? Let us know!
