Why don't they just let Tara Strong play live-action Harley Quinn?
>hurr too old
>hurr not gymnastic enough
It's be a new, unique take on the character.
An middle-aged Harley actually makes sense, if they want to play up her actual Doctor side.
I think we should bring back Arleen Sorkin. Kids will want to see the original Harley Quinn.
The more I think about it, the more I like it. A young, slutty, energetic Dr. Quinzel turning into a young, slutty, energetic Harley Quinn doesn't really take you on a voyage of degeneration. She's basically starts at the destination, encounters the Joker, and puts on a costume.
Using an older Harley shows the Joker actually doing work on someone to break her life and start forcing her to do things that she normally wouldn't -- things that make her uncomfortable. The sad, mutton-dressed-as-lamb dress-up just illustrates his influence overriding her common sense. Also, it avoids the stupid "twenty-something medical professional" shit.
But, yeah... Young tits shaking dat ass wins out on ratings.
Do people really unironically think she's attractive and not totally fucking insufferable?
implying that's her only shrill voice character
I would have gone even younger than Margot. A genius kid that with very little effort breezes through high school and medical school and takes a position at Arkham because she really believes she can make breakthroughs in these high profile cases and make a name for herself as this world renowned psychiatrist. But her skill is mostly academic and she has little to know real experience dealing with patients, especially not with ones of the level of Gotham's criminally insane.
They should render Suicude Squad non-canon once it flips (ala Fant4stic) and cast Tara and Mark as Harley and Joker. He can pull it off now that he unjusted.
weird, that's not the image I copied from google
...aaaaand I forget to upload the image I had just downloaded.
>It's be a new, unique take on the character.
Is Tara Strong still going around trying to make it seem like she originated Harley's voice and wasn't just a sound-alike for an unavailable Sorkin?
Amazing how a beard can make you look younger.
Which is why you won't see Hamill shirtless anytime soon, fella. The skin left from significant weight loss can easily be hidden with clothing, or even removed if you've got the money for it. (Thankfully, the face doesn't retain bigass folds of skin after weight loss. )
But her Harley voice is absolutely fucking garbage. And she's and old whore.
Me too, Anon. Or someone from Brooklyn who can do the voice. Arleen wasn't a VA to start with, she was a stage & film actress.
Some Anon posted these vocaroos on a thread about this before.
there's a reason voice "actors" are voice "actors"
it's always cute to see /cobmlr/ trying to discuss the art of acting. I bet every single one of you thinks the academy awards protest is a good thing with a legitimate complaint.
i actually don't know why but i remember the shitstorm on /co/ when this went out
Motherfucker she is not a genius. She slept with her professors and didn't lern a goddamn thing. Harley is so unbelievably one dimensional as a stand alone character. She is barely a psychiatrist (I don't even know how DC pulled off she hs an actualt job in Nu52). But come on, she used to think about breakthroughs in high profile cases, but she got an ACID DIP. She is crazy. She will never be a relible or legitamite psychiatrist.
>Sorry for rznt but come on man.
Yeah they were all big smokers. Tim, Mark, Arleen. Her voice got too froggy from smoking so she had to quit. It's also why Mark had to retire the Joker laugh; it was harsh to begin with and combined with his smoking was literally making the poor mofo spit up blood.
Women tend to deteriorate fast after menopause due to the loss of hormones. For example, the average walking speed of women starts dropping after 50 while it doesn't significantly drop for men until after 70. In short, women start developing osteoperosis after menopause.
> Genius kid who is literally to young to have gone through the basics of their profession
Yeah, that's never been done in fiction before.
They still make you take at least a 3-year residency after you complete your undergraduate and post-graduate work (6-8 years). Having a early- or mid-20s non-resident doctor is basically the writers shouting "We don't fucking care whether our story makes sense!"
Because she looks like a fucking goblin from warcraft.
Do you think Kristen Stewart regrets backing out of that shitty Focus movie once Will Smith was assigned her costar? If she wasn't a racist she could've gotten the role as Harley instead of just being the Twilight bitch with fantastic feet.
Do you have to be racist to not want to work with a shitty actor like Will Smith?
Besides, she's done some other things than Twilight.
There's nothing wrong with Margot. The problem is the direction they're taking her character, which is a problem with deeper roots than just the movies and won't be fixed just by switching actors.
Also, no one wants to see an old, busted hag try to be sexy.
Wait, let me correct myself. No one NORMAL wants to see an old, busted hag try to be sexy.
Leto's Joker is JUST a copycat
>if they want to play up her actual Doctor side.
what was once the defining trait of the character has been pushed to the back burner then down the back of the cooker pal, now she's a stronk indepederp womyn remember.
Also I didn't know that the resason why Harley is so strong etc in the comics (unless it's been retconned) was thanks to Ivy giving her some super plant juice. Also Harley has broken the forth wall in the comics.
