I was one of the few who did not rush out to see Joker when it opened, because based on what I’d learned about the plot, it did not sound like a “me” kind of film. It sounded monumentally depressing, and I don’t do depressing. Or at the least, I don’t deliberately go out and pay someone money to make me depressed for an entire afternoon or evening.
It is my understanding Joker is basically “How tragic would it be if there was a Joker in real life?” That’s the kind of question you can answer in one movie and be done with it.

I see Gaga as a Poison Ivy more because of her mature and serious demeanor so most likely her Harley will be more closer to the early 2000s Bird of Prey TV series.

Gaga can pull off the Brooklyn accent because she is New Yorker but can she pull off a whimsical child like character like Harley?
