According to a new report, it appears that Warner Bros. and DC Entertainment are surprisingly fast-tracking the development of a brand spin-off film set in the DCEU.
The exclusive report from the good folks over at Screenrant reveal that the film will be headlined by two of their most popular villain characters in Margot Robbie's Harley Quinn and Jared Leto's The Joker. However the film will not be a team-up of the two, but a versus film featuring the two ex-lovers go head-to-head in all out battle of crazy vs. crazy!
According to Screenrant "the project is described as a spinoff and Geoff Johns is set to produce. No story details or production dates have been set as of yet, but it’s possible we learn more during the Warner Bros. panel at San Diego’s Comic-Con International tomorrow where they kick off the big day in the convention center’s Hall H.
Both Harley Quinn (Margot Robbie) and The Joker (Jared Leto) were first introduced in 2016’s Suicide Squad directed by Ayer, and both stars are attached to return for Harley Quinn vs The Joker"
Along with the spin-off film update, Screenrant also takes note that the "logo treatment for the WB panel was designed in the style of Suicide Squad’scolorful aesthetic so in addition to teasers and cast appearances for this fall’s Justice League, and next year’s Aquaman (currently in production), expect an updated slate of timelines and announcements."
All this sounds really, really interesting and we're super excited for the fact that Warner Bros. appears to finally have a plan. For better or for worse, it appears as though they are finally making a decision about their universe and sticking with it.
