Recently, new set photos taken during the production of “Birds of Prey (And the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn)” landed online, revealing a character believed to be Joker. The picture showed the filming of a scene where Margot Robbie‘s Harley Quinn appears to be kicked out by her lunatic boyfriend.
In the leaked pics, Harley and Joker seem to be having an argument, with Harley standing outside of a house and Joker tossing out her stuff from the second-floor window. The Joker’s face cannot be clearly seen in the images, leaving people wonder if Jared Leto will reprise his “Suicide Squad” role in the upcoming spin-off.

As if it’s not interesting enough, Leto has sent fans into frenzy by teasing his possible appearance in “Birds of Prey”. Responding to the online chatters, he coyly addressed the rumors on Snapchat without denying or confirming them by sharing a clown emoji.
Some people believe that it’s unlikely for Leto to return in “Birds of Prey”, because he’s now filming his own new movie, “Morbius“. Some others suggest that the 30 Seconds to Mars frontman could lend his voice as Joker in the “Suicide Squad” spin-off, while others think that a new actor could be playing the role in “Birds of Prey”.
“Birds of Prey” will follow Harley Quinn after she splits up with The Joker. She teams up with Black Canary, Huntress and Renee Montoya to save a little girl, Cassandra Cain, who is threatened by Black Mask, an evil crime lord.
Rosie Perez stars as Renee Montoya, Mary Elizabeth Winstead is tapped to portray Helena Bertinelli a.k.a. the Huntress, Jurnee Smollett-Bell plays Dinah Lance a.k.a. Black Canary, and Ella Jay Basco is cast as Cassandra Cain. Additionally, Ewan McGregor joins the cast as Roman Sionis a.k.a. Black Mask and Chris Messina will appear as Victor Zsasz.
Cathy Yan is directing the pic, with the script provided by Christina Hodson. The dark-edged crime film eyes a February 7, 2020 release date in the United States.
