During the promotional rounds for Suicide Squad, a lot of talk was dedicated to the heavily truncated relationship between Harley Quinn and The Joker. In fact, some even said there was enough footage for another whole film that could focus solely on the criminal couple of the DC Comics Universe. Well, if someone wants to start editing that footage together, and use this Fifty Shades of Grey mashup as the template, Warner Bros could have a hit so huge they could smash February records - even against Fifty Shades Darker itself.
YouTuber Nerdy Hero put together this pretty awesome tribute to Harley and her Puddin', simply by using the footage available from all of the trailers, as well as the music video for "Purple Lamborghini." Naturally, a Fifty Shades video wouldn't be complete without being set to the slowed down version of Beyonce's "Crazy In Love," and this trailer doesn't disappoint on that front either. Put all of those elements into this one, convenient package, and you've got a film that we'd actually kind of be interested in seeing.
Theoretically, if the powers that be at Warner Bros and DC Comics wanted to really throw the world a curve ball, they would commission an R-rated film that truly explores the darkest corners of Harley and Joker's relationship. A lot of their complicated coupling is hinted at in Suicide Squad, and despite the film's sugar coating of their typically abusive dynamic, the awful truth of their romantic life could be shown for all to see.
Obviously, it'd be a very mature, very creepy film, but considering the attention that the watered down version of their relationship has garnered, this hypothetical project could be a good step in the right direction. So how close does this fake Suicide Squad spinoff mirror its real life counterpart? See for yourself, as you watch the first trailer for Fifty Shades of Grey all over again.
Ultimately, Warner Bros and DC Comics would probably never engage in a project anywhere near the thematic content that "Fifty Shades Of Joker." Despite the hypothetically rewarding attention they might receive, their bread and butter is in the four quadrant superhero / supervillain movies like Suicide Squad or Justice League. Still, if they ever want to get a little darker and pursue something a little off the beaten path, this gem of an idea will be waiting with bated breath, and a twisted smile on its face.
