Suicide Squad had a hell of a weekend, what with critical disapproval, simultaneous financial gain and ruin, and all of the other events that made the week leading up to and including the film's release all the more interesting. And yet, the most intriguing thing happened in the actual film itself, as two big scenes with very important characters implied that a life changing event had, or could, occur. We're talking, of course, about the possibility that Harley Quinn was either pregnant, or interested in being pregnant, with The Joker's child.
It's a possibility that's been explored elsewhere in the DC Universe, and considering the influences that are shaping the cinematic branch of said universe, it doesn't seem all that far off. But, being the skeptics that we are here at Cinema Blend, we need to look over what's in front of us and talk this one out big time. So it is with our keen intellects and analytical eyes that we present to you the case for how Harley Quinn just might be a more sane individual than we thought, and for one big reason.
The Joker Has Baby Clothes
Seeing as The Joker was supposedly cut from most of his appearances in Suicide Squad, there's a lot of potential evidence that could be on Warner Bros' cutting room floor. However, there's a big moment that's still in the film that has us thinking about his relationship with Harley, and why he's so intent on chasing her. While the narrative has been altered to show Joker actually caring more about Harley, and in the most romantic manner ever for that character, it seems as if there has to be a larger reason. That big reason, at least from what we're seeing, is that Harley Quinn is either talking about, or actually was, pregnant.
Now Joker definitely doesn't seem like the "wife and kids" kind of guy, but considering one of the scenes we see in Suicide Squad shows him lying in a womb made of knives, as seen above, this doesn't seem like a stretch. The icing on the cake is the fact that actual baby clothes are set out around the knife formation. See them in the photo above. Those can't be coincidental.
However, considering everything that was cut from Joker's plot line, and the fact that this scene was left in with its dripping symbolism, it seems like something might be poking out from the shadows. Perhaps The Joker was even pursuing Harley for this very reason, as he would have either sought to be in the child's life as an influence, or even worse, wanted to make sure the child was no more if he didn't have any interest.
