Suicide Squad Thoughts
by Tyler Patrick for the Legends of DC Blog
We have seen the reports that Jared Leto has said he is unhappy with the Joker scenes that were cut. That he filmed enough for a Joker movie.
Well here is my Idea for what to do. Instead of just a Harley solo film why not make it a sequel to Suicide Squad or spin off, and call it Joker & Harley: Mad Love.
Much the way Captian America borrowed the title and ideas from Civil War but wasn't a direct adaptation.
Now you open the film with the motorcycle chase that was cut and show the chemical jump again, cut to harley getting broken out of Belle Reeve then the opening credits. Thefilm could use any other scenes that were cut out of their origin tale as flashback as well as film more.
Use Batman as a minor Character but allow the film to introduce maybe Batgirl and Nightwing. Even the Red Hood Jason Todd, the flashback scene to Robins murder isone everyone wants to see.
It’s an idea I want to see more of Leto’s Joker you don't build up a new interpretation of the character for a cinematic universe and then give him very little to do.
