This week has proven that the DC cinematic universe is hard at work trying to catch up to the multi-billion dollar monster that’s the Marvel cinematic universe. Now it seems like the much talked about Harley Quinn solo movie has finally found its writers.
Deadline is reporting that John Requa and Glenn Ficarra are in serious talks to write, produce and direct that Suicide Squad spinoff film that’s set to star Margot Robbie as the title character and feature Jared Leto reprising his role as the clown prince of crime, The Joker.
The news comes just days after it was reported that film legend Martin Scorsese was set to produce an origin story film about The Joker with yet another actor set to take on the role of Batman’s greatest villain. Call us crazy but this seems like DC once again stepping on their own toes and tripping themselves up during the race for comic book cinematic dominance.
Lord knows that if it wasn’t for Wonder Woman the DCEU would have little to no credibility.
After clanking it big time with Batman v. Superman and air-balling their next attempt in Suicide Squad, DC has given themselves little to no room for error.
Now with rumors that Avengers director Joss Whedon is working hard on salvaging Zack Snyder’s “unwatchable” rough cut of the highly anticipated Justice League with reshoots and re-writes, we’re not sure what to expect from future DCEU installments.
Let’s hope they figure it out before most of their future projects become Netflix exclusives.
