'Crazy Stupid Love' Duo To Helm Harley Quinn & Joker Movie

It's about to get weirder over at Warner Bros. and DC Films, and honestly it's going to be a pain keeping up with whatever the Hell they're doing over there. Remember just before Comic-Con there was that rumor of a Harley Quinn vs. Joker movie? Well, it looks like it's true according to THR's sources, and it even has directors in John Requa and Glenn Ficarra, the duo behind NBC's This is Us and Crazy Stupid Love.

Come to think of it, "Crazy Stupid Love" could be a subtitle for the psychotic relationship between Joker and Harley Quinn. This wouldn't be such a big deal story if we hadn't just learned of a Joker movie that is outside of the DCEU continuity and will feature an actor other than Jared Leto. But this one exists within the Justice League/Suicide Squad canon and will bring back Leto and Margot Robbie. Ugh!

The film will arrive some time after Suicide Squad 2 and is being described as a "criminal love story", which makes sense. I imagine a True Romance-type atmosphere is what they'll be gunning for.

The report also says “this strategy will distinguish Warners’ superhero movies from those of competitors, namely Disney, which has a highly interconnected Marvel universe of films as well as Star Wars.” And that much is true and perhaps the one exciting aspect of all this. However, Warner Bros. may have been better served letting this flurry of bombshell news trickle out rather than hitting us all at once.
