It’s been an eventful couple of years for the Joker, appearing in 2 significant smash hits played by 2 various approach stars– and now even his ex-girlfriend is starring in her own woman gang motion picture, Birds of Victim (Or the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn). Is Jared Leto’s Joker, who first appeared together with Harley in 2016’s Suicide Team, himself in Birds of Victim?
And if he isn’t, well, why not?

Ifyou have actually seenBirdsof Victim, then(******************************************************** )currently understand. The Joker hardly appears in it, and even when he does, it does not appear like Leto is playing him.
Birds of Victim briefly utilizes some clips of Harley Quinn’s origin story from Suicide Team, scenes in which Leto’s Joker existed, however the motion picture never ever in fact shows him. In another flashback, we see Harley and the Joker by force tattooing a person for the lulz, however we just see the Joker from behind, and it’s not Leto playing him, simply a Letoalike.
Polygon got a possibility to talk with Birds of Victim director Cathy Yan, and when we asked her if there was ever a point in production where Leto’s Joker was in the motion picture, she had a basic response. “No.”
” This motion picture is truly almost Harley,” Yan continued. “It has to do with Harley ending up being the lady she lacks being the sweetheart.”

At one point Leto was “set to exec and star produce an untitled standalone movie,” most likely fixated theJoker
However after a couple of years of advancement time, just James Gunn’s The Suicide Team has actually continued in a substantial method, and Leto does not appear to be in it. In the meantime, Joaquin Phoenix’s starring turn in Joker– a Joker solo movie– has actually been chosen for 11 Academy Awards.
However Leto himself appears to have actually carried on anyhow– to Spider-Man’s vampire-but-not-a-vampire bad guy, Morbius. Can vampires use grills?
