It had to happen. It was only a matter of time. One of next year's biggest blockbusters has gotten the mashup treatment with one of this year's box office hits. That's right, in a special fan made video, The Joker and Harley Quinn go all Fifty Shades Darker. And it's pretty spectacular.
The relationship between The Joker and Harleen Frances Quinzel was already dark. But if you thought it couldn't go any darker, you were wrong. Because it just went pitch black. This Suicide Squad mashup comes from Youtube user Nerdy Hero. He calls this little piece of fan erotica 'Fifty Shades of Joker'. And apparently, it has been a long time coming. He explains.
"Crazy Never Looked So Bad! Honestly I've had this Idea for a Mashup for almost a year and glad to finally be able to make it and show you all!"
The first Fifty Shades Darker trailer dropped earlier this month, and racked up more first day views across a wide array of social media than even Star Wars: The Force Awakens. Some predict that it could knock Star Wars: The Force Awakens off the domestic box office chart, becoming the biggest movie of all time in the U.S. Suicide Squad didn't manage to do that when it opened this past August, but despite weak reviews and unsatisfied fans, the movie is a certified hit having earned $315 million domestic and $721.8 million worldwide. It is currently the 8th highest grossing movie of the year, just behind Batman V Superman at number 7.
This mashup uses music from Fifty Shades Darker, giving it a very BDSM feel. The Clown Prince of Gotham and his betrothed become the new Anastasia Steele and Mr. Grey, as it were. And it is exactly what the movie needs right now. Perhaps some fans will watch this and want to recapture that summer magic as we head into the fall and Oscar season. The video is also cool, too, seeing as how director David Ayer axed a lot of Joker and Harley's scenes from the finished movie. About that, Jared Leto had this to say in an earlier interview.
"If I were to die tomorrow, maybe the studio would roll something out. Rated R or rated X performance in there somewhere."
Margot Robbie claimed that these scenes hit the cutting room floor simply because the movie needed to focus on the mission laid out in front of Task Force X. And not the budding romantic relationship between two psychos. You can watch this perfect mashup here. We've also included the Fifty Shades Darker trailer, though with it garnering so many views this past month, we don't know how you possibly missed it. While we await news on a release date for Suicide Squad 2, Fifty Shades Darker will be in theaters this Valentines Day.
