Now that Shazam! is in theaters, the next two DC Comics movies set to hit the big screen are Joaquin Phoenix’s Joker, scheduled for release on October 4 , 2019, and Margot Robbie’s Birds of Prey (And the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn), which comes out on February 7, 2020.
The upcoming Joker film, directed by Todd Phillips of Old School and The Hangover fame, has finished intial filming and is currently into the editing stage.
Over the past few days, even more photos have been revealed, giving us a look at some interaction between Harley and Joker in what appears to be a scene involving Mr. J throwing Harley out of their home.
While his face isn’t visible, this Joker’s look appears to be consistent with Jared Leto’s version of The Crown Prince of Crime in Suicide Squad.
Leto is currently filming Morbius in London for Marvel, but he did post a rather cryptic image on his Snapchat recently which certainly could be construed as a hint that he will be back, at the very least in a cameo role, as Joker in Birds of Prey.
The only synopsis of Birds of Prey that we have so far comes from Flickering Myth who says the film “will see Harley moving on from her abusive relationship with The Joker as she teams with The Huntress, Black Canary and Detective Renee Montoya to help protect young Cassandra Cain from the mob boss Black Mask.”
Until any or all of that is confirmed, we will just have to glean what we can from these latest photos of Robbie filming in Los Angeles.
