Earlier today, we saw Jared Leto playing coy about returning to the DCEU as The Joker. Maybe this story might explain his joking attitude…
Screen Rant is reporting that Warner Bros. Pictures and DC Entertainment are developing a Harley Quinn vs. Joker movie. The film would feature the return of Margot Robbie as Harley Quinn and Jared Leto as the Joker. This film would be in addition to Suicide Squad 2 (which The Shallows director Jaume Collet-Serra is reportedly the frontrunner to helm) and David Ayer’s Gotham City Sirens, which would also see the return of Robbie’s Harley Quinn, who is expected to be joined by Catwoman and Poison Ivy.
Harley Quinn vs. Joker (or is it gonna be Harley Quinn v Joker?) is being described as a spinoff. Geoff Johns is reportedly on board to produce the film. No more information is available at this moment, but perhaps we will learn a little more as San Diego Comic Con 2017 rolls on. Maybe we will even get an official announcement of the film at the Warner Bros. panel tomorrow morning.
Personally, I’m a little concerned that Warner Bros. is putting so much focus on all of their villains in the DCEU, what with Suicide Squad and it’s upcoming sequel, Gotham City Sirens, and the rumored Black Adam solo movie, not to mention those rumors about a Deadshot solo spinoff, which granted, we haven’t heard much about in a little while. While I do think that DC has the best villains around, I love their heroes just as much and would rather see them focus their energies on bringing their stories to the big screen correctly before thinking about all of these villain-centric spinoffs.
Harley and Mr. J made their DCEU debut in David Ayer’s Suicide Squad, which also starred Will Smith as Deadshot, Viola Davis as Amanda Waller, Joel Kinnaman as Rick Flag, Jai Courtney as Captain Boomerang, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje as Killer Croc, Jay Hernandez as El Diablo, Karen Fukuhara as Katana, Cara Delevingne as June Moone/Enchantress and Ben Affleck as Bruce Wayne/Batman.
No release date has been set for Gotham City Sirens or Suicide Squad 2 either, but earlier this week, Warner Bros. announced release dates for two mystery DCEU films in 2020, so perhaps this film, one of those release dates might be reserved for either of these films.

Every DC Comics Film, Ranked From Worst To Best
The film legacy of DC Comics should never be understated, even as the maturing superhero genre continues to follow more diverse paths of success through comic book characters beyond DC’s iconic catalogue.
But not all DC movies are created equal, and there’s merit to reflecting on how these films measure up against one another as the DC Extended Universe approaches its fifth movie in the form of Justice League (and the crowd said, finally). This list attempts to do just that by holding every live-action DC movie released in theaters to a consistent set of worthwhile standards, including the quality of the film itself, the onscreen performances, cultural relevance (both within and outside of box office considerations), overall impact, contributions to the genre at large, and originality.
Put more simply, a movie on this list won’t trump another on ticket sales, alone (or at all). But perhaps you’ll find an experimental DC film getting the leg up over another that is slightly more formulaic and unremarkable, despite being remembered fondly.
For obvious reasons, it’s perfectly alright to disagree with this list, but keep in mind that expecting it to coincide with your personal opinions and observations will only leave you disappointed. That said, be sure to offer your own arguments and lists in the comments for others to weigh their opinions against, because…well, why not?
Let’s start with the worst of the DC films (not an easy task). Hit Next to continue.
