Birds of Prey is only a few weeks away from theaters and Margot Robbie is in full promotion mode as she ramps up her publicity tour. Due to a variety of circumstances, it is probable that Jared Leto’s Joker from Suicide Squad won’t even make a cameo appearance.
We are literally just a few weeks away from Birds Of Prey: And The Fantabulous Emancipation Of One Harley Quinn and it looks like we have a better idea of how the story will go…and it probably won’t have Joker. To some that might be a good thing, to others something terrible (if you are one of those people we definitely want to hear from you) but it looks like audiences will have to move on just like Harley will have to.
In an interview with Variety, Margot Robbie talks about how this movie will be one in which Harley will be learning how to live her life without Mr. J. The actress has been working on this movie for near four years now and she discusses how empowering this movie can be for women. Here’s the clip:
So one key aspect of moving on is letting go of toxic relationships…and Joker is certainly one of those for Harley. Obviously we haven’t seen the movie yet but it would not be surprising if the movie dealt with bad relationships and coping with the aftermath (though most of us probably won’t go out and buy hyenas as a coping mechanism)
As for a cameo appearance, that likely won’t happen since it has been reported that Leto is angry with Warner Bros. The actor felt very alienated after he found out that Todd Phillips’ Joker movie was green lit.
The actor was so upset that he did everything in his power to stop the movie before it ever saw the light of day. He complained to his agency, CAA (which also represents Phillips), and even threatened to have his music manager call the head of the studio to voice his displeasure.
Thankfully, he was unsuccessful in stopping the movie but we wish Leto the best in his future endeavors.
Birds Of Prey hits theaters February 7th.
