Whether you loved it or hated it, many fans were happy to see that the “relationship” between Harley Quinn and Joker in the recently released DCEU movie, Suicide Squad. And yet, many have noted that there were more scenes filmed involving the characters Harley and Joker, and some of just The Joker, that were reportedly cut from the final product. This left many fans disappointed, especially for those wanting to see more of Leto’s Joker. In an interview with Tipsy Talk, Margot Robbie, who played Harley Quinn, revealed why she thought the scenes were cut:
“They probably realized that the emotional through-line of the story had to be the mission that we were on, and explaining the Enchantress’ position and all that kind of stuff. And the [Harley and Joker] backstory stuff, though it’s magic and some of the stuff we shot was insane, they are flashbacks … so there’s a lot, but it just didn’t make sense to confuse the present storyline to incorporate all that.”
She also noted that she’d love to do a spinoff film of featuring her and The Joker. “I’m trying to make that happen,” Robbie said of a Harley spin-off. “There’s just so much more to do.”
Suicide Squad had an impressive opening despite bad reviews. And with more potential films on the way, we may not have to wait long for confirmation on either a Suicide Squad sequel, or something more for Harley and The Joker.
