Forbes is reporting that Warner Bros. is no longer developing both The Joker & Harley Quinn film and a stadalone project based on Jared Leto’s version of Joker.
The two were introduced in 2016’s Suicide Squad film and even though the Joker character had mixed reactions, the success of the film got Warner Bros. to begin developing solo features for the two.
Now with the disappointing box office numbers for Justice League
However, with the studio altering their plans following the disappointing box office numbers for Justice League and the record-breaking gross for Aquaman, the Joker and Harley Quinn project, as well as a solo film featuring Jared Leto’s Clown Prince of Crime, have reportedly been dropped:
“The Mad Love-type Joker and Harley Quinn film has also fallen by the wayside, as has the solo Joker project for Jared Leto’s version of the character from Suicide Squad.”
With all that, Margot Robbie will be returning as Harley Quinn in Birds of Prey.
