Sorry if this has been brought up already.
So with Jaquin Phoenix’s new Joker movie in play, I’ve been wondering.
I’m assuming and hoping they aren’t making this separate from the existing DCEU, so I’m wondering if they’re maybe combining Batman Beyond’s Return of the Joker with A Death in the Family.
Meaning what if JP’s Joker is the original Joker, and the Joker in Suicide Squad is Jason Todd-turned Joker?
The original Joker mangles or brainwashes Jason Todd, who at first looks like he’s Joker’s new side-kick but then turns on JP, like in Return of the Joker.
And now Jason Todd is back as Joker, dating Harley, and tormenting Batman.
I was one of those people who scoffed at the idea of Jason Todd being Joker back when BvS and SS came out, but looks like I could be wrong.
