Hmm, that was interesting. I kinda agree on at least one point, Gaga could be a pretty good Ivy. I’d still pitch the cast of HQ TAS in a live action version. I mean what’s one more version but let the shows writers write it since they started their version and would know best in what direction to steer it. This is all just spitballing of course. Hopefully they wouldn’t screw it up trying for PG13. Straight up R rated all the way.

Same. I’m down for pretty much whatever James Gunn wants to do. :popcorn: And I’m a big Lady Guh-GAH fan, so I’m not going to pretend I have a problem with her playing either Harley or Ivy. :laughing:

We don’t know the timeline, and I don’t think they should jump right in to that relationship, but depending on where it takes place, in a Todd Phillips movie, I could :100: totally see it working.

:thinking: I wouldn’t say no to her as Ivy, either. :poisonivy_hqas: Depends on the project, of course, but if it were to be w/ Ms. Robbie, that is up to Ms. Robbie to sense the chemistry. She has earned my trust. :diamonds::green_heart:

This calls for some tunage now… :notes:

I appreciate what you’re saying, but I don’t agree. We can’t hold to the past so tightly we don’t allow progress and for new people and ideas to get a shot. :balance_scale: The very things we both love wouldn’t exist without that opportunity (HQAS, DCSHG, Suicide Squad, Wonder Woman, DP, BOP and a handful of things coming down the pipeline). I don’t trust that they would be happening without these things coming first and proving that we don’t always need Batman.

And I absolutely don’t view her as either of those things. She’s trying to work like everybody else. She isn’t an established actor, imo. (We could say the same for Joaquin Phoenix or Robert Pattinson or Michael Keaton or any actor who is recognizable). If she tests and fits with her co-star, and the director sees what he needs, then that makes her the right one for HIS vision. Directors are the artists in the end. It’s up to them to edit and dress and craft the film. If his story is set in a period that works for Harls, I trust him to deliver another great movie. :diamonds: If there can be multiple Batmen and Jokers, there can be multiples of everyone else, too, imo. :green_heart:

Lady Gaga as Harls… hmm…

Well, first, I’ve gone on record saying that I don’t even think there should be a Joker 2. I’m sticking by that. I really don’t think there’s anything further to say with that cinematic world. The first Joker was enough and really felt self-contained to me, so I’m not into DC going through with this.

That being said, I get it: Joker is $$$! So this Joker 2 movie is happening. Since it is happening, I’m kind of glad that they’re keeping Margot Robbie’s Harley away from it. Don’t get me wrong, I love Margot Robbie’s Harley. It blew me away back in the first Suicide Squad movie. It made me say, “Yes, this is the perfect live-action Harley.” And it’s a fun portrayal of Harley. Margot has made that character so much fun in the Suicide Squad movies and Birds of Prey.

And that is the one thing that the Joker movie isn’t: Fun. The world of that Joker film is bleak and serious and menacing. It’s whatever the opposite of fun is. I’m not saying Margot couldn’t adjust her Harley performance to fit that world. I’m sure she could. I’m just not sure I want to see that for fear it might interfere with how I see/enjoy Margot’s Harley as it has been.

So, if there HAS to be a Joker 2, I’m generally alright with Lady Gaga being its Harley. Honestly, I’ve never seen anything she’s acted in outside of music videos, and I don’t know all that much about the Lady Gaga in general. But, just from interviews and stuff, I can kind of see it. I’m willing to give it a go if there HAS to be a Joker 2…

Thank you for bringing this up, @TheCosmicMoth Initially, when I heard Margot would not be playing Harls, my initial reaction was “Nope. I’m not going to bother even watching this film. No one could possibly do Harley Quinn justice following Margot, especially since she is still RIGHT THERE TO BE CAST!!” I was frustrated and saddened… but after reflecting on your point about the darker tone of the Joker film, when I try to imagine Margot’s Harley, it feels like a backpedaling from the growth given to us in Birds of Prey & The Suicide Squad. I think it will be easier to regress to a Harley Quinn that is still with the Joker if there is a different actress playing her… This will help me to separate it out as a film version of a non-continuity story.
That being said, I am still sad and frustrated we never got a Gotham City Sirens film with Margot…

That’s really good point! I didn’t even think of the whole “still with the Joker” aspect of it.

Ugh… yeah, now that you say that, I’m trying to imagine what this version of a Joker/Harley relationship would look like. It all kind of just makes me shudder. I hope they are really careful with that.

…and if he does, I’m hoping for a Conner/Palmiotti-inspired ass-kicking of Joker by Harley!
