Actually Harley is not in the core team Suicide Squad NS. Amanda Waller (Viola Davis) puts Harley into the Task Force XA team where almost all of its members are killed at the beginning of the film. However, Harley survived and was taken into custody. In the film, Harley seems to be operating alone and is on the verge of finding her love. However, the person she likes turns out to be a power-hungry dictator who wants to kill children. Although Harley is usually portrayed as the Joker’s girlfriend, in this film Harley is a human being freed from the Clown Prince’s arms after the events of the Clown Prince Bird of prey. This doesn’t open up many opportunities for the Joker to be part of the story Suicide Squad. So, where is the Joker at? DCEU When Suicide Squad busy fighting Starro the Conqueror?
Joker’s location during the event in Suicide Squad remains a mystery as he is not mentioned at all. Suicide Squad (2016) ends with the Joker freeing Harley from Belle Reve so they can live together as criminals. However, Bird of prey (2020) later confirmed that their romance had ended. Harley even removed the Joker tattoo from his body. Even so, Jared’s version of the Joker is still in the DCEU and remains the one that criminals fear. It could be that the Joker still thinks of Gotham as his home. If that’s true, then the Joker might have been in that city during that event Suicide Squad.
Quoted from Screen rant, it makes sense that the Joker is not in Suicide Squad. He doesn’t fit into the ranks of Task Force X. Including him on the team can confirm that anyone, like Batman, has beaten him in the past. Jared’s version of Joker proved to be a survivor in his short time in the DCEU, especially considering his role in Justice League Zack Snyder’s version. If he’s not part of the team or dating Harley, then there’s no reason why the Joker should appear Suicide Squad.
So what will the future of the Joker look like at the DCEU? Until now there has been no confirmation of Jared’s return to the DCEU to play the Joker again. Decision forrestart Batman outside the main continuity of the DCEU means Jared won’t be fighting Robert Pattinson’s version of The Dark Knight. Meanwhile, Ben Affleck’s time as Batman in the DCEU seems to be coming to an end in the movies Lightning. In fact, there are discussions about Jared’s solo version of Joker or Joker with Harley Quinn. However, to date, no project has had any momentum.
