Ever since its announcement, Joker 2 has continuously been a topic of discussion among fans. But one thing that had everyone most curious about the film was it being a musical. After actor and singer, Lady Gaga, was cast as Harley Quinn in the film, the news also came out that Joker 2 will be a musical. Later it was claimed that the film will not be fully musical but will have some musical elements in it just like Joker had. However, according to a new rumor, there’s a whole other reason why the film can be a musical.
A recent rumor reveals the real reason why Joker 2 will be a musical and why the creators of the film have taken Lady Gaga to portray Harley Quinn. Harley Quinn is not just an important character in Joker’s life but the whole DCEU.
Joker 2 Will be From Harley Quinn’s Perspective
According to a rumor, Joker 2 will focus more on Harley Quinn instead of Joker. The rumor started from “the Hot Scoop or Shot of Poop” segment of The Weekly Planet podcast. The host of the show, James Clement, said during the show, that one of his very reliable sources has told him that the film will be from Harley Quinn’s perspective.
He says, “Apparently, Joker 2 isn’t so much a Joker movie, it’s a Harley Quinn… It’s from Harley Quinn’s perspective. And the reason it’s musical is that that’s how she perceives her relationship with Joker.”
The host of the show also talked about how it will be like a romantic musical and will focus on the love story of Joker and Harley Quinn. And most of this will be shown from Harley Quinn’s perspective as she starts getting affected by Joker’s psychology.
