Gaga does appear to suit fairly comfortably into the world of “Joker,” and I am certain her model of the character will praise her personal Mistah J. Margot Robbie was pitch excellent in the identical position in “The Suicide Squad” flicks, however for these “Elseworlds” movies, it is fairly clear that Gunn and Safran wish to preserve a stringent barrier between the brand new DCU and the stand-alone motion pictures.
We do not even know if Robbie can be again as Harley anytime down the road, however we will be fairly certain that this new period of DC is eager to streamline their roster and minimize down on the confusion that may include having a number of variations of the identical character performed by totally different actors all going on the identical time and not using a very clear distinction.
As sloppy because the MCU will be, they had been very sensible in constructing their cinematic universe one constructing block at a time. By the point all the pieces acquired tremendous loopy, we had been already all-in on the universe and knew who everybody was and the place they stood, even when they did just a few actor switcheroos (lookin’ at you Terrence Howard and Edward Norton!) Judging by Gunn’s state of the DC union presentation, that is one thing they will finally emulate.
“Joker: Folie à Deux” is not set to hit screens till October 4, 2024.
