James Gunn, director of The suicide squadprefer Harley Quinn over the Joker. Both characters are villains known in Batman, with Joker making his debut in 1940. Harley Quinn made her debut more than 50 years later in Batman: The Animated Series, but quickly became almost as famous as the Clown Prince. of crimes. Both characters have been included in several television programmes during the year, but the characters shared the screen most recently in 2016 for the Suicide Squad of David Ayer.
The Joker, of course, had many appearances in live before that Jared Leto would assume the role of Suicide Squad, but this would be the first time the fans saw a version of Harley Quinn in vivo. Margot Robbie was chosen to interpret the character, a decision of casting that was one of the few things that are praised in the film. In fact, Suicide Squad had difficulties to connect with the fans as with the critics. The film really began to receive criticism from the beginning when it was revealed for the first time the design Joker from Jared Leto. The representation of Joker, Leto was widely criticized in Suicide Squad, which is likely due in part to many of the scenes of Joker were cut from the finished product. The better half the Joker was able to connect more with the fans, as well as with Gunn.

While conducting a session of questions and answers of Instagram, Gunn revealed that he preferred to Harley Quinn over the Joker. Gunn revealed that he loved Harley Quinn even before I started to write The Suicide Squad and she has always been one of his favorite characters in comics since he debuted in the 90’s. The full commentary from Gunn can be seen in the screen capture of your history of Instagram below.
Despite the fact that Suicide Squad is mixed with negative reviews, Margot returned as Harley Quinn this year for Birds of Prey (and the fantastic emancipation of a Harley Quinn). Harley Quinn Robbie will return in The Suicide Squad, but that may not be the end of your character yet. In 2017 it was revealed that a movie solo Harley Quinn and Joker was in development, but it seems very unlikely to happen at this point given the backlash that Warner Bros. saw Leto’s Joker. Harley Quinn is more likely to appear in Gotham City Sirens, a movie that would be Poison Ivy, Harley Quinn and Catwoman joining. Robbie just did not want to return Gotham City Sirens, but the critical success of Birds of Prey could help push the film.
Joker is often considered the villain of the most popular of Batman, but not when it comes to the DCEU. The majority of the fans prefer to Harley Quinn Robbie on the Joker, Leto, mainly due to the way the characters were handled initially in Suicide Squad. Robbie and Will Smith got the most amount of screen time in Suicide Squad, which allowed Harley and Deadshot have a proper development of the character, unlike the Joker. Harley Quinn may be a villain more new in comparison with the Joker in general, but Gunn seems really happy to be able to include one of his comic characters favorite The suicide squad.
